Erasmus University will be working with the University of Dubai. A covenant was recently signed in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

The cooperation will last for five years and will involve the exchange of students and setting up joint research programmes.

'The start of more’

The covenant was signed in the presence of mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, the Dutch ambassador Frank Mollen and Mijke Zeegers from EUR. At the signing, Eesa Bastaki, president of the board of the University of Dubai, called Erasmus University ‘a prestigious university’. He feels that a covenant with EUR proves that the ‘University of Dubai can be the number one’. “This agreement is just the start of more cooperation in the future.”

The University of Dubai is twenty years old and has three faculties: Business, Engineering & IT and Law.
