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 and crucial moment, we have fiercely accepted the responsibility to serve the society by providing quality education. We began to realize that our societal role and contribution are twice as hard but ten times more rewarding and meaningful especially when we know that we’re working for a good cause and for 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 achieved all its goals.
Over the years, Skyline University College evolved from a modest beginning of an institute conducting certification programs into a mature university college and has witnessed more than 7000 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 that conducts business management programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels with several innovative and sought-after specializations including Strategic Management & Leadership and E-Governance at the MBA level as well as Marketing & Retail Management and Travel & Tourism Management at the undergraduate level, amongst several others. The School of IT which was launched two years ago offers Bachelor of Science in Information Technology - Enterprise Computing (BSIT-EC).
We are also fortunate to be part of 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 a prominence and wishes to further expand into a full-fledged university. In the current strategic plan, new school of Engineering has been envisaged wherein work is in progress in this direction.
At Skyline, we are driven by our core mission to reinforce 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 at the same time building connections with various universities, professional linkages, 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 plantation have seen some 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 as much as we can.
