"AUC did not just give you an academic degree, it gave you life skills, it helped you understand how to become yourself, to understand yourself and accept the differences of others."


Reem Al Olabi

Ph.D. in Applied Sciences

Class of June 2014

"Throughout the 5.5 years I spent, I have learnt a lot whether about research or life in general. I have learnt how important it is to be patient and never lose hope when experiments keep failing you, how great it is to taste the wonderfulness of achievements after years of hard work, and above all how important it is to believe in what you are doing and believe that you are going to succeed."

The first Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA)   Class of June 2014
What the representatives of the first Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Class have to say?

Abeer Almudaris


"Our EMBA group of 25 students is incredibly diverse and unique. We have comedians, financial whiz kids, observers, idealists, intellectuals, divers, athletes, deep thinkers, charmers, lovers of nature and fighters. But there is one thing that united us all: That is our EMBA experience."

Maha Farouk


"They were more than faculty; they were friends, mentors, role models and personal coaches when needed."

Yasmine Helal 



"Most of us agree that AUC was the perfect place to foster our minds and ambitions in this critical learning phase; the phase where we need to sharpen the saw. Sharpening the saw is about renewing your-self - physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally."
