UOWD’s School of Business offers two undergraduate programmes;
Bachelor of Business Administration
Bachelor of Business – with specialisations in Marketing, Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, Business Analytics, Finance and Accountancy
The business sector is one of the world's largest employers, offering varying roles and careers. Business plays an important role in evolving a complex global economy by providing solutions to problems in a sustainable and ethical way. The two degrees offer a broad education across all key aspects of the business environment. In addition to studying the essential core disciplines of accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing, the student can tailor their studies according to their interests by choosing electives from a particular Business discipline, or they can combine Business electives with subjects from other faculties. The degrees offer a holistic insight into management of business and how to work hand-in-hand with intermediaries and institutions. The degrees provide exposure to real world issues through opportunities to work on industry projects.
Both programs are fully accredited by the Ministry of Education in U.A.E. and in Australia. We have a good relationship with the home campus and are now finding opportunities to collaborate globally with Australia and other international campuses. In addition, we have recently moved to a brand-new campus with the latest technology and classroom design for student centred learning.
