 The single most critical challenge for any professional shall remain on how to successfully build human capacities 

The world we live in today will be different tomorrow, and the single most critical challenge for any professional and business alike shall remain on how to successfully build human capacities while delivering brand experiences, retaining customer, and sustaining growth.

Qualified professionals at every level who possess the necessary skills and education are scarce and hence in high demand.

The UAE boasts 45 Economic Free Zones, 28 in Dubai alone, to foster trade, industrial production, and the ever-growing service industries.

Ahead of the EXPO 2020 buildup, 227,000 new jobs will be created, and over 25 million visitors are expected. Dubai is the region’s largest business hub and start-ups’ incubator with USD 300 million in investments. With a diverse population of over 200 nationalities composed of 60% able and ambitious working professionals between 25 – 54 years, the competition in the race for the buildup and recruitment of human capital is fierce!!

At MODUL University Dubai, the first and only Austrian university in the Middle East, we offer university degrees that have been designed over the course of a century. It all started with our team in Vienna back in 1908 and has now been perfected in Dubai in close collaboration with industry stakeholders as well as policy makers to meet the regional requirements in an effort to bridge the skillset gap between higher education and the job market using best practices led by world-class professors, trainers and coaches.

At MODUL University Dubai we work with some the most renowned faculty, scholars, and entrepreneurs from around the globe. Focusing on expanding horizons for our students, our faculty utilize their academic, entrepreneurial, and life experience to deliver a holistic 360-degree learning experience to our MODULians.

Such calibre of education is not easy to secure, but at MU Dubai we spare no effort in delivering the best.

MODUL’s specialized and internationally accredited undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programmes in International Management, Tourism and Hospitality, Interactive Marketing, Events Management, New Media Technology and Sustainable Development prepare students to pursue international managerial careers while equipping them with the necessary skills to succeed in tomorrow’s global business needs.

We believe in empowering our students through avant-garde education as well as tailored training programmes aimed at strengthening their employability prospects and advancing their careers. This includes our flagship “Internships by MODUL” training programme which guarantees paid internships to our students at leading corporate partners across multiple industries while making sure students are well equipped ahead of commencing the internship.

Another clear example is MODUL’s first of its kind educational programme is “Inside MBA”, a disruptive solution in the MBA education segment that revolutionizes the way working professionals gain access to select MBA courses of their choosing to strengthen and increase their knowledge and skill-sets needed for their profession at their own pace and without having to compromise their employment while taking into consideration their budget constraints.

The part-time format and flexible study method for MODUL’s graduate (MSc in Sustainable Development Management & Policy) and postgraduate (MBA) degrees give participants the opportunity to apply newly-gained knowledge immediately in the workplace, ensuring that the benefits of the study programme are realised from day one, investing into knowledge and intelligence is one of the key assets for young people.

Sustainability is one of the key principals at MODUL University Dubai while it represents an integral part of the curriculum and research agenda, and is also reflected in the daily work-flow at the Dubai Campus. From CSRE, MODUL’s fully-integrated research center, through to MODUL’s flagship academic programme MSc in Sustainable Development, Management and Policy that addresses sustainable development strategies across all verticals from the environment, urban planning, real-estate, economics, public policy and governance MODUL is firmly committed to fulfil its mandate and deliver on its commitment to the environment. An internal ‘Sustainability Committee’ composed of the staff, faculty, and students works to maintain and improve the university’s sustainability goals.

In October 2017, MODUL University Dubai’s, research arm, The Centre for Sustainability through Research and Education, CSRE, has been selected to be the only education and research entities partners to the HH Shaikh Hamdan Centre for Future of Investment (HCFI).
