School of Business
I welcome you to the School of Business at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK). At the School of Business, we offer high quality business programs at the bachelor and master levels, conduct high quality research, and provide community service. We offer five undergraduate business programs which include BS in Business Administration, BS in Human Resource Management, BS in Finance, BS in Accounting, and BS in Marketing. At the graduate level we offer Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Executive MBA (EMBA). The MBA and EMBA programs offer courses on the weekends to facilitate attendance by a working student population. The Executive MBA is designed for executives with at least five years of managerial experience.
All of our seven business programs are accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. We have started the process for accreditation of our business programs by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Our Eligibility Application has been approved, and we have entered into the Initial Accreditation phase. AACSB accreditation is known worldwide as the pre-eminent professional accreditation for business schools.
We have a highly diverse faculty who hold doctorates from respected universities around the world and who bring to the classroom an array of professional and research experiences. While the research expertise of our faculty is instrumental in developing critical thinking skills, their professional experience aids in developing practical insights in our students.
The School of Business will soon be moving to a new building on campus with the generous support of RAK Bank. Overall, AURAK’s School of Business is an excellent place to study and prosper as you pursue your academic and professional goals.
