The UAE’s rise from a modest trading hub to a dominant force in international business is impressive and inspiring. Officially formed in 1971, the UAE is a young country wedged between Oman and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East (Western Asia). It consists of seven different emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, and Fujairah. Abu Dhabi is the nation’s capital, while Dubai,
its most populated city, is an international hub.
Interestingly, Dubai is the regional headquarters of 70% of the largest Fortune 500 companies and home to two of the world’s largest ports. It has also adopted smart and future-oriented strategies such as establishing free trade zones, removing income tax, and investing heavily in infrastructure—giving it a world-class look—to make it an appealing destination for expatriates to work and live there. Today, the UAE is home to over 200 nationalities, with over 88% of the population consisting of immigrants.
The UAE is also a strong advocate for advancing the UN SDGs. It formed a National Committee in 2017 to implement the SDGs. The National Committee collaborates with different stakeholders locally and internationally to broaden ownership of the 2030 Agenda.
The UAE provides a unique cultural experience that combines traditional values with modernity. It offers an exhilarating range of attractions, including the Burj Khalifa, the Museum of the Future, desert safaris, man-made islands, futuristic cities, and spice and gold souks (traditional marketplaces).

What Our Students and Faculty are Saying
FAQs About the UAE
The United Arab Emirates is a very safe country in terms of safety regulations. Crime is especially uncommon in places like Abu Dhabi and Dubai, which have a high standard of safety. On a side note, students should become familiar with local laws and customs because breaking the law in the UAE may carry serious consequences.
No, it’s not necessary to learn Arabic language for the academic tour. English is widely spoken across the nation. However, it would be helpful to learn common phrases like “hello” or “thank you” in the local language.
