Background and Objective
The Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) was established following the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, at the American University in Dubai. The School was founded with the aim of attracting the brightest students from across the Arab world, those who aspire to become communicators, by providing them with solid academic training. Upon their graduation, these students are hoped to contribute to the evolution of media institutions in the Arab World and help rise with it to international standards of professionalism and quality.
