This program will introduce you to the Triple Bottom Line, a method which goes beyond the traditional bottom line of business to the profits a business makes socially, environmentally, and economically. Measuring a business using the Triple Bottom Line is one of the best markers of how sustainable a business is, and how profitable it really is. Corporate sustainability measures the ability of a business to thrive, based on its impact on the environment, its relationship with the community, and its contribution to the economy.
Through the program - the first home-grown undergraduate program in business sustainability in the UAE and region - you will examine how sustainability can be measured, how sustainability can work for a business, and how to define sustainability. Courses include Business Sustainability, Environmental Management, and Sustainable Supply Chain Management.
Common across all specializations in the Bachelor of Business Administration programs are courses that will provide you with a solid foundation to communicate effectively, carry out research, understand legal, social, professional and ethical responsibilities in a business environment, apply analytical and critical thinking to business issues, use information technology effectively, and understand the dynamics of a complex global business environment.
Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.
The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.
Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
