Capital College, UAE's first entrepreneurship College, aims to create tomorrow's entrepreneurs



Twenty-two years young, 26 design awards and counting, Capital College's focus is on offering all its qualifications to create an entrepreneurial mindset in their students. Whether these are design students or business students, all are exposed to principles of business and entrepreneurship very early in their curriculum.

Capital College's intention is to offer programmes to develop future entrepreneurs and leaders. Its students from day one get involved in short internships, competitions and work with leading brands and events. The recent ones the students participated in was the International Women Entrepreneurship Forum in addition to the Dubai Airport Show earlier last year.

Capital College's association with world-class education providers allows it to serve the students with the most updated content and study practices. The College has two kinds of students enrolled - students who complete school and wish to pursue a bachelor degree, and the working professionals who wish to earn an accredited qualification to help them with their migration or professional development.

In the first instance, students who finish school, their parents are seeking qualifications that are practical, recognised and transferable - that allow their children to complete their final years at the mother campus and graduate there - all this at an affordable fee with a college that has great facilities, a friendly payment plan and a secure environment. Capital checks all these boxes.

In case of the working professionals, they love Capital College's convenient weekend MBA offering as it helps maintain their work-life balance. The College follows the flip model of learning in many cases and students enjoy classroom discussions and case studies.

With hundreds of scholarships in place, Capital College looks forward to attracting students of diverse backgrounds to its student base. Students and professionals alike value the College's partnership with the North Wales Business School, Glyndwr University, UK. NWBS, Glyndwr has been ranked number one for social inclusiveness in the UK as per Sunday Times, 12th for Faculty and courses and the 55th overall University of the Year in the UK as per WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020. Students enrol for their BA Hons in Business and the very popular MBA from Glyndwr.

Capital College's multi-award winning design school works hand in hand with the London College of Arts. They offer the very popular fashion design, interior design and makeup diploma. They will soon be launching courses in media, jewellery design and luxury brand management.

"We welcome transfer students who have completed the Level 5 and Level 7 diplomas from recognised awarding bodies applying for the top up bachelors or MBA. Level 7 students can get direct entry to final dissertation stage at the MBA. Students from other colleges are also welcome to apply and we look at credit exemptions," states Dr Vikas, Co-founder of Capital College.

Capital College's focus this year is to add more opportunities and exposure for our students to implement what they learn. The year 2020 will see the launch of the WASC accredited Westcliff Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) programme, which will take its offerings to the next level.
