It is with a mixture of pleasure and pride that I introduce to you the University of Balamand Dubai (UOBD). UOBD is a vibrant university that is emerging as a prime regional provider of higher education, delivered to the highest American standards—ultimately conferring internationally recognized credentials upon our graduates.
Recognizing that one of its primary objectives is to exercise leadership in defining and supporting excellence in higher education, the University has invested much effort in developing and expanding the academic policies governing its programs, such that these policies more fully reflect the great emphasis UOBD places on academic excellence.
A hallmark of the UOBD experience is the close attention we pay to the needs of each individual student, and the opportunity for direct interaction with a team of highly qualified faculty members who combine outstanding academic credentials with a passion for helping students to achieve success in their studies and grow holistically. Above all, UOBD faculty members are dedicated educators who have a strong commitment to instructional quality and are always available to provide advice and guidance to students at every stage of their studies.
It is in this spirit that I welcome you to UOBD. We will be pleased to answer all inquiries about our admission process and our programs from existing and prospective students and all other visitors of this website.
