It is with a feeling of great satisfaction that I look back, over the twenty five plus years of journey traversed by the Skyline University College (SUC) that started in 1990. One of the many reasons of this satisfaction comes from the contribution we have been able to make to the society to which we belong and in pioneering a new paradigm in higher education. Being one of the oldest privately operated institution of higher learning in the UAE is certainly a matter of pride for us.
Over the years SUC morphed into a mature University College from a modest beginning of an institute conducting certification programs. The learning experience through the course of this journey has been very rewarding. SUC today is a prestigious name that conducts business management programs at under graduate and graduate levels with several innovative and sought-after specializations including Strategic Management & Leadership and E Governance at the MBA level besides Marketing & Sales and Travel & Tourism Management at the Under Graduate level, amongst several others. The characteristic feature of SUC programs is that they have been developed with the business and industry trends in view and with consultations of the industry experts, who are associated with SUC as employers of our graduates, advisors of SUC, and a large and influential alumni, besides many more stakeholders that SUC always looks forward to. The industry academia interactions for reinforcing our programs from time to time has been our core strength.
We are also fortunate to be part of the Sharjah University City, which in turn is part of the cultural and educational vision of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Sharjah. It is with the inspiration and blessings of His Highness that SUC has grown to such a prominence and wishes to further expand into a full-fledged University. In this direction the Academic Affairs Committee of SUC is already working to add a 'School of IT' and expand the 'School of Business' with a DBA program.
Guided by our Mission, SUC has remained focused on imparting knowledge, skills and values to our students. In the recent past however, the emphasis on community outreach programs has seen some outstanding efforts by students, staff and faculty members towards water conservation and tree plantation. We are committed to give back to the community with all the resources at our command and as much as we can.
