Founded in 1989, Dubai Women’s College opened its doors with 145 students. These young ladies were leading the way for the future of women in the UAE, not only by getting an education but also by opening doors for the generations to come to join the work force. Many of these DWC graduates are now in high ranking positions in both the public and private sectors. Several examples include the first UAE National Vice President at Citibank, Director of Marketing at Emirates Post, Director of the Dubai Press Club, the Director of the Dubai Ladies Club and Director of Sharjah Ladies Club.
Since 1989, the number of students attending has grown to more than 2,200. DWC now offers courses in Business, Information Technology, Health Science, Communication Technology and Education. These majors have been developed in response to the demands of the marketplace.
Today, DWC is the leading provider of top-quality national women graduates in Dubai. Our more than 2, 900 graduates are among the first national women to be selected to head important departments in Dubai and to take on leading roles in multinational companies. The Executive Office, Dubai Internet City, the Dubai Department for Economic Development, the Ruler’s Court, Etisalat, Citibank, Dubai Municipality, Dubai Television, Ministry of Health, Emirates Airlines, Emaar, Emirates Bank Group and Enoc are a few of the many employers of DWC graduates.
