Licensure and Accreditation

The City University Ajman (CU Ajman), located in the emirate of Ajman, is officially licensed since 1 August 2011, under the name of City University Ajman, from the Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, to award degrees in higher education. CU Ajman received initial accreditation in January 2012 for a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program with two specializations: Finance and Accounting, and Marketing. The semester started with 45 students and 7 faculty members. Since then, CU Ajman has expanded rapidly. In Fall 2018, we have 60 full-time faculty members, 2050 students of diverse nationalities enrolled in 5 programs and 17 specializations, and 1010 students graduated in the last 3 years. In addition, in September 2017 the University became a member of AACSB, an international accrediting agency for business schools. This tangible success has been an outcome of the dedication of the management, faculty and staff members. In 2015, CU Ajman commenced the construction of its State-of-the-Art new campus in the city of Ajman. Phase 1 of the campus was completed in November 2017 with a capacity of 3500 students. Phase 2 and 3, when completed, will have a total capacity of 7500 students. In mid-December 2017, CU Ajman moved to its new campus.

CU Ajman is strongly committed to offering top quality educational programs that will have significant and positive impact on society. The University strategic plan for 2018-2023 explains how it will continue in its path of success, amid internal and external challenges. The focus of the plan is to build on the previous efforts to enhance student experience and research, improve internationalization strategy and internal processes effectiveness. It defines how CU Ajman will steadfastly move with continuous improvement for all stakeholders. Delivering this plan will require responsiveness to changes on the part of the Board, faculty, administrative staff, and students in both the internal and external environments. In February 2021, CU Ajman received its renewal of licensure for the University and all its degree programs.
