About Us

Michigan State University's commitment to global engagement has led to the establishment of a strong and dynamic presence in the United Arab Emirates. MSU Dubai is a satellite campus that focuses on master's degree programs, custom and open enrollment executive education programs, research and consultancy, and Study Abroad opportunities in the UAE.

MSU Dubai operates under the direction of MSU's International Studies & Programs office in East Lansing, Michigan, USA, and as a partner of Dubai International Academic City.


MSU has partnered with the Al Majdouie Group to establish the Middle East Logistics Institute (MELI) in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. This institute draws on MSU's world-class strengths in supply chain and logistics and is intended to serve as a beacon of excellence in knowledge and best practices for the region in this increasingly important subject area.

Study Abroad

MSU offers Study Abroad opportunities in Dubai to US-based students. To learn more, search for current Study Abroad programs on the MSU Study Abroad website.


Michigan State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Association of American Universities, International Association of Universities and others.

The degrees awarded at the MSU Dubai campus are issued by the home campus in Michigan and are, therefore, accredited by the same local accrediting bodies.
