Dean of the College of Business Administration (COBA) – Abu Dhabi University
Location: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Established in 2003, with over 7000 students and based in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi University (ADU) is a rapidly growing private, multi-campus university dedicated to meeting the educational needs in the UAE and neighboring countries. 

International rankings demonstrate that we are an internationally competitive institution committed to academic excellence. We offer graduate and undergraduate programs that are academically challenging and career-oriented. ADU has an American style curriculum. With WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accreditation, other international program accreditations, and recognition in international university rankings, we are now poised for expansion and growth in locations and programs.  

One of the largest providers of business education and research in the region, Abu Dhabi University’s College of Business Administration enjoys an outstanding reputation for its teaching, research, industry engagement and employability. A full service business school, it is one of the very few institutions in the region with both AACSB and EQUIS accreditations. It has healthy UG, PG and DBA numbers and a strong research profile. 

The new Dean will be an outstanding, strategic and operational leader, with experience gained ideally as a Dean, an Associate Dean or a Department Chair in an internationally accredited school of business. You will have strong academic credentials (ideally already a Professor), be ambitious for the School, committed to student experience, success and employability, to strengthening our corporate partnerships and to enhancing the College’s research reputation.
