MMU - IPPBM program

These days, international experience and a graduate degree are "must-haves" in most professions. At the American University in Dubai, we offer the best of both worlds - a way to double the value and impact of your degrees and accelerate your education, making the transition from undergraduate to graduate study seamless, efficient, and cost-effective.

The new partnership between AUD and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU-UK), starting September 2020, brings together two institutions accredited by the internationally renowned Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), an accreditation granted to only 5% of business school worldwide.

The International Progression Path in Business and Management (IPPBM) - Earn Two Bachelor's degrees in four years from two top-tier institutions

An innovative and distinctive path for high school graduates seeking and international experience, the IPPBM enables students to spend their first three years at AUD, and transition to complete their final year at MMU-UK. Graduates of IPPBM will receive a BBA degree from AUD in the general discipline, or any one of six specialized majors, and a BA(Hons) in Business Administration Management from MMU.

Plus: there is the opportunity to add one additional year and earn your Master's degree! - students can stay an additional year at MMU and earn their master's degree.

Dr. Assaad Farah, Dean of the School of Business Administration at AUD commented

"The launch of the program is timely as many students who were applying abroad are now choosing to stay in the UAE. With the first three years at AUD, this path offers a top-ranked education, followed by the option to go to the UK for their final year"
