Chancellor's Message

Welcome to Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University!

Educating the innovators of tomorrow, Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU) has had a lifelong tradition of excellence and innovation. The emphasis at HBMSU is on the delivery of innovative education to each learner, leveraging quality management tools, smart learning principles, entrepreneurship thinking and progressive collaborative learning. The University was the first in the region to launch an accredited degree in the field of Organizational Excellence in 2007, when innovation was merely a buzzword for academia.

Embraced by the University, innovation is the path towards growth, progress and a better tomorrow for the Arab world. The University believes that innovation and creativity do not come from physical or natural resources, but from mental labor; and the transformation into knowledge economies requires innovation, creativity, collaboration and differentiation in business, health, and educational sectors. Innovation drives sustainable economic and social development. In fact, the key prerequisite and proven strategy for the realization of the economic potential of the MENA region and the ascending to the next level of development at global level connote the notion of ‘quality of innovation’. More importantly, the University’s commitment to transform education in the Arab world embodies the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, for higher education as well as the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and President of HBMSU. The University has much to be proud of and a strong base to positively contribute to the social and economic development of the Arab world.
