Established in 2002, this innovative higher education project has been conceived, crafted and implemented by Dr. Mansoor Al Awar, HBMSU Chancellor, as a passionate response to the hopes and aspirations of the new Arab generation, with a focus on smart learning as the future of education and empowerment in the region.
Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University’s Lifelong Learning Model is designed to provide many forms and opportunities of education and learning experiences that combine both academic and non-academic programs and courses.
By focusing on the importance of the learner’s ‘lifelong learning needs’, HBMSU offers all of its professional programs through certification routes to progress through a career path in multiple sectors including quality and business management, banking, healthcare, environment, smart learning, and e-education.
The pioneering vision of the University has, in fact, paved the way for the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) to design standards for accreditation for an e-learning institution.
Since its inception, the University has taken a lead in developing a knowledge-based economy with pioneering research initiatives in response to the research needs of the Arab World.
Taking into account that the staff is the institution’s most valuable asset, HBMSU proves to be the employer of choice for many professionals, and especially for UAE Nationals who have chosen it to build their career path and climb up the ladder. HBMSU places strong emphasis on productivity, constant progress, and expertise and skills of its talented staff. The HRD provides performance management system, and skills training and development programs which are designed to ensure constant progression and development.
The Library at Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University offers its learners, faculty and staff with easy access to a vast collection of specialized learning resources and high-quality research material, with the aim of supporting the overall learning and research experience at the University.
With its unique learning environment, the University offers a fresher learning experience with the use of innovative technologies in the form of mobile learning, discussion blogs, online classrooms, educational gaming, social networking all suited to meet the needs of working professionals and high-school graduates alike.
The learner-centric environment at the University is reflected in the full support offered to learners with automated pre-enrolment and admissions support, e-virtual communities and learners’ clubs, and additional learning resources such as the Library, e-Career and Placement Services, using the latest in ICT technologies to communicate with learners across the globe.
