Why accreditation matters

Accreditations

University accreditation is a quality assurance process under which programs are evaluated by an external body. If required standards are met accredited status is granted. A qualification from an accredited university gives you a competitive advantage in the job market. Abu Dhabi University’s extensive accreditation credentials demonstrate robust quality standards at both a national and international level, guaranteeing you a qualification that is recognized globally.

Abu Dhabi University is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). In addition, our College of Business is both EQUIS and AACSB accredited, only 1% of business schools worldwide have this double accreditation.

At a program level, our College of Engineering has received international accreditation from the world-renowned ABET for many of its engineering programs, and the Bachelor of Architecture has received Part 1 validation from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
