Creative generation of entrepreneurs to successful projects around the globe
I would like thank His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, for his patronage to the launch of the Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy, and the unlimited support and guidance he continuously provides to creating a new generation of successful businessmen and women capable of leading us towards a bright future.
His Highness has always said that "Entrepreneurship development is the first and foremost strategy to promote business in Dubai." His Highness’s vision continues to inspire Dubai SME to work with SMEs and entrepreneurs, enabling them to contribute towards steady and sustainable economic development in Dubai.
The Academy is a novel initiative by Dubai SME, the agency of the Department of Economic Development mandated to develop the SME sector, which will lead to a stronger support system for SME owners and future entrepreneurs and ensure that they have the necessary skills and experience to succeed. The Academy will provide the required knowledge and skills to our target community.
I am confident that this Academy can positively influence overall economic development in Dubai and the city's position as a vibrant hub of business.
Abdul Baset Al Janahi,
CEO of Dubai SME
Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy (DEA) believes all students should have equal access to all of DEA’s facilities, programs, and activities without regard to age, color, religion, national origin, marital status, gender, or handicap. All students are granted certain rights and have certain shared responsibilities as members of the DEA community. DEA encourages students to make their own decisions and assume full responsibility for all consequences of their actions. Students are expected to adhere to federal and local laws of the United Arab Emirates. The rights and the responsibilities below outline a system designed to safeguard and protect the rights, safety, and property of all in the Academy’s population, which ensures a fully operative and well-managed community of learning
Freedom of Assembly
DEA recognizes the rights of all students to seek knowledge, debate ideas, form opinions, and freely express their views while respecting the rights and freedoms of others. The Academy recognizes the right of freedom of assembly, but student gatherings must not disrupt or interfere with the operation of the Institution. Any recognized student organization, after receiving approval of time and space, may hold group meetings inside an Academy building. The use of public address and sound equipment systems is prohibited outside DEA facilities. Any use of this equipment inside the university facilities must maintain a reasonable sound level.

Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy (DEA) will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the programmes described in the prospectuses.
Prospective students should be aware that it is occasionally necessary to modify, discontinue or combine programmes. This may be necessary for a number of reasons such as low enrolments, illness or departure of staff, industrial action or reduction of funding.
DEA does not provide education on a commercial basis, and is dependent on public and charitable funds that require the Acadmemy to deploy its resources efficiently and rationally. Changes will only be made if the Academy reasonably considers it to be necessary.
If a programme is discontinued, DEA will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative programme and will take all reasonable steps to minimise disruption; allow a student to withdraw without penalty if a programme is cancelled or significantly varied, with an appropriate refund of fees and deposits.
Our reputation has been built through our sustained success in Entrepreneurship and teaching over many years. High standards and quality are key features of this success and DEA is committed to maintaining its standards and continually enhancing its quality in all areas.
Quality assurance aims to provide our stakeholders - government, students, employers, professional institutions and many others - with evidence that high standards are attained in all areas and that agreed processes in DEA are operated correctly and professionally.
Students are encouraged to share personal experiences while participating in classes at DEA. However, students must be aware that should they disclose to any DEA faculty member or staff information that may cause harm to themselves or others, faculty members and staff are required to report such information to DEA Management & Coordinators.
General Statement of Philosophy on Student Conduct
DEA believes strongly in promoting the development of personal and social responsibility and also believes in a humanistic approach to discipline conducive to academic pursuits; however, DEA recognizes that its responsibility for the protection of personal and institutional rights and property is a primary focus of the disciplinary process. The administration reserves the right to develop any policy or take any action(s) deemed appropriate to maintain the safety and wellbeing of any or all students.
DEA maintains not only high academic standards, but also expects students to maintain conduct integrity and be a good DEA citizen. This means demonstrating courteous behavior and professional conduct at all times. Students are expected to maintain an exemplary level of maturity displaying behaviors and dress that do not violate in any way U.A.E. norms, practices, beliefs and expectations of personal conduct. DEA students are subject to all local and national laws.
DEA students are subject to Dubai law, which prohibits consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages for Muslims and individuals under 18 years of age. DEA does not permit alcohol to be brought onto or consumed on its property at any time regardless of age or religion. No alcohol is either served or permitted at DEA functions, whether on or off campus. The penalty for the consumption and/or possession of alcohol on university grounds is dismissal from the Academy.
