I want to make sure that we create and shape new frontiers for what is known, what is anticipated, and what is needed in the future.

Besides, Through the UAEU transformation plan, we developed a new strategy that embraces our strengths - our resilience, adaptability, and human compassion - and directs them towards the future.

Our job this academic year is to aspire to the vision and deliver the mission.

As we have admitted students who are increasingly capable and have higher chances of fulfilling the requirements of their degrees. So the holder of a UAEU degree must be recognized as future-ready and future-capable: having the motivation to learn and adapt them continuously, able to invent and innovate, ready to work with others to build the society's future.

In addition to this, the Curriculum Delivery, as we will reconfigure how we make these programs accessible to the greatest diversity of students. We must use technology for its merits –enabling us to be more flexible and nimbler in our offerings, allowing us immediate access to an immense supply of knowledge and information – so that the use of technology is for serving the human intellectual.
