Thirty years ago, we were presented with an opportunity to make a difference. We seized this opportunity and took a big leap. In that defining moment, we have fiercely accepted the responsibility to serve society by providing quality education. We began to realize that our societal role and contributions are twice as hard, but ten times more rewarding and meaningful especially when we know that we’re working for a good cause and the betterment of this world. That was the time we first built the eminent foundation of Skyline University College under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and the Ruler of Sharjah, whose guidance, support, and direction helped Skyline achieve all its goals.

Over the years, from its modest beginning Skyline University College has evolved — from an institute conducting certification programs to an established university college which has given the world over 12,000 graduates. The learning experience through the course of this journey has been very fulfilling. Today, SUC is a prestigious name having a School of Business, which conducts business management programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels with several innovative and sought-after specializations including Strategic Management and Leadership, and E-Governance at the MBA level, as well as Marketing and Retail Management, and Travel and Tourism Management at the undergraduate level, among others. The School of IT, which was launched several years ago, offers Bachelor of Science in Information Technology - Enterprise Computing (BSIT-EC).
We are also fortunate to be part of the Sharjah University City, which is the cultural and educational vision of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi. It is with the inspiration and blessings of His Highness that SUC has grown to such prominence and wishes to further expand into a full-fledged university. In the current strategic plan, the School of Engineering has been envisioned and efforts have been made to pursue this direction.

At Skyline, we are driven by our core mission to strengthen higher education in the region with our vision to create more programs, open new schools, and upgrade our teaching strategies and facilities to address the present needs of the market and to prepare for the unforeseeable future. We are working relentlessly to expand internationally, and at the same time, building connections and professional linkages with various universities and networks across the globe to bolster the ground of our foundation.

In the recent past, the emphasis on community outreach programs toward water conservation and tree planting had seen outstanding efforts by our students, staff, and faculty members. We are committed to give back to the community with all the resources at our command, so we’ll continue to support environmental campaigns and initiate outreach activities.
