Arden expands to UAE through partnership with Success Point College

Success Point College

Continuing to expand its international presence, Arden University has recently partnered with Success Point College, enabling prospective students in the UAE to access UK accredited bachelor’s and master’s degree courses. 

With a similar ethos and approach to Arden, Success Point College provides students with access to globally recognised professional qualifications that equip them with the real-life skills required to excel in challenging workplaces. Since 2014 the institution has already built a strong partnership with leading universities in India, the United Kingdom, and the Czech Republic. 

Arden’s partnership will offer students in the UAE the chance to secure degrees in subjects including business and management, data analytics and finance, psychology, human resource management, and accounting. The courses will be endorsed by leading professional bodies such as CMI, CIM, and APM, and are recognised by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency.

Debra Hinds, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Partnerships at Arden University said: “After the success of our first franchise partnership with Roots Ivy College in Pakistan, we are delighted that we are able to further our commitment to offering high-quality education prospects to students across the globe by partnering with Success Point College in the UAE.

“This partnership represents Arden University’s commitment towards ensuring students around the world have access to the education they need to reach their potential - irrespective of their location, background, or current commitments. Our ultimate goal is to provide easy access to challenging academic programmes that are essential to enhance career prospects, and our partnership with Success Point College does just that.”

Finas Kundil, Managing Director at Success Point College, commented: “UAE attracts people from all around the world for both jobs as well as business. At present, people from more than 200 countries live and work in the UAE of which mostly are expats who start their careers just after graduating from respective countries. The number of such professionals who seek to get higher education along with their work life is significant. Constantly upskilling skills and upgrading qualifications are very important to thrive in a highly competitive environment like the UAE and that is exactly what we at Success Point College aim to fulfil by collaborating with Arden University offering courses with professional accreditations.” 

Ashraf Jawaid, CEO of International & Partnerships at Arden University, said: “The UAE is a growing jurisdiction which attracts international investments and expatriation. It seemed like the next step forward to be expanding Arden’s footprint here. We are proud to be able to offer students access to a first-rate education that will set them up for success in their future careers, in such an upcoming market. 

“In the increasingly competitive environment of worldwide access to higher education, the last two years has made it easier for universities to expand their global offerings with the rise of remote learning. We wanted to take it a step further, however, and give our students the benefits of gaining an industry-recognised degree via Arden’s popular blended learning format without having to pack up and move country."
