In an ever-changing, fast-paced world, allow yourself to achieve more in less time. At Curtin University Dubai, you can earn a bachelors & masters in three years instead of five!


With a trimester-based calendar, students may complete their Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Business Administration in two full calendar years rather than the usual route of three. Due to its undergraduate degrees having such a strong foundation, students who complete either of these undergraduate programs automatically qualify to receive Credit for Recognised Learning (CRL), which exempts the students from the first four units of the MBA(Global). This enables students to receive their postgraduate degree within one additional year. Completing the undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in three years requires taking a full class load each teaching period, for nine teaching periods in a row, and not failing any classes.


Receiving your undergraduate and postgraduate within three years will help you get into the professional world sooner than the competition, giving a head start to your career and allowing you to stretch your education investment across two degrees efficiently. By getting into the work force two years earlier, you effectively add two years to your career before retirement which can significantly increase your retirement savings.
