With the world of work and the global economy undergoing rapid and transformative change, professionals who can adapt, innovate and improve will succeed in their careers and entrepreneurial endeavours.

Through its graduate programmes, American University of Sharjah (AUS) opens up new possibilities for individuals and prepares them to excel in their profession and lead in their field.

Every semester, AUS welcomes an impressive cohort of talented, ambitious and dedicated graduate students. These students are attracted to AUS for many reasons, including its record of academic excellence and reputation for faculty distinction. The university has more than 350 full-time faculty, with whom our graduate students work closely to formulate ideas and conduct research. The university's close links with the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park, adjacent to the AUS campus, provides unique opportunities for the commercialisation of this research. The university also nurtures close links with the business community, ensuring its graduate programmes, and those undertaking them, are informed by the latest business needs and practices.

Access to graduate study is taken seriously by AUS, and the university acknowledges the financial and time constraints graduates sometimes face. The university therefore embeds maximum flexibility in the delivery of its graduate programmes, offering part-time study and after-hours classes. AUS also offers competitive full and partial graduate assistantships for qualified students.
