The university aims to be a part of the University Entrepreneurship Programme which is designed to bridge different sectors to activate and implement the sixth article of the 50-Year Charter by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
Named ‘Alchemy’, the programme is designed to support university students to start their entrepreneurial journey before graduating by providing them with skills and services that enable them to transform their ideas into well established businesses. It further aims to transform universities to entrepreneurial hubs where students have access to a supportive ecosystem of coaches, business experts, legal advisors, and much more, allowing them to work efficiently.
Dr. David Schmidt, President of the American University in Dubai stated “The AUD & EI Center is the result of a great collaboration between AUD and the DFF to transform the education sector in the UAE and the region.
