The University of Balamand Dubai (UOBD) is a welcoming, vibrant multicultural campus community. Students, faculty, and staff come from different countries and cultures—a reflection of the United Arab Emirates, which hosts people from all over the world who come here to make this country their home.
UOBD follows the North American model in the design of its programs and curricula and in its organizational setup. UOBD’s educational philosophy is based on the liberal education model, which aims to provide students with a transformative, holistic learning experience that enables them to achieve professional success, realize their personal aspirations, and contribute to the advancement of society and humankind.
The University of Balamand Dubai embraces the universally-acclaimed American liberal education model, which focuses on whole-individual education. A UOBD education teaches you HOW to think NOT what to think, HOW to learn NOT what to learn. The goals of UOBD’s educational philosophy include graduating students who are able to adapt and respond to the challenges of a fast-changing economic and social environment, and to pursue lifelong learning.
Moreover, UOBD strives to serve the UAE society and contribute to the advancement of the UAE in every sphere. UOBD enjoys the full support of His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mabarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Tolerance and Honorary President of UOBD. The University is also strongly supported by Dubai Investments (DI) and Dubai Investments Industries (DII). This opens many career opportunities for our graduates
