Hadley University Dubai admissions, reviews, notes

Hadley University (HU) is an online university, unknown if it has a real campus or where it is if it does, although it has a USA contact telephone number. HU doesn't have a presence in the UAE as far as we know but it is offering "scholarships" to UAE students, worth up to 75%. Unknown if these are real scholarships or a marketing strategy to offer what appear to be discounts from the "rack rate" for tuition fees. The scholarship marketing discount offer appears to be the same as for Hillford University, another USA based online university, even the websites look the same. Unknown if they belong to the same institution or not.

In particular, HU seems to be focused on marketing its MBA programs in Dubai but they are probably the same as or similar to those offered by other online universities with the same website.

Accreditation by any officially recognized accrediting body not found for Hadley University. Accreditation organisations on the the HU website are ones that are not recognized by any UAE or USA government education department. A number of sources claim that Hadley University is fake, unknown in what way, but it would probably be advisable to find out if any degree awarded by Hadley University is accepted as a recognized qualification by the UAE employer you want to work for, and by the UAE Ministry of Labour for a work permit application, before starting one of their programs. Website has some subdomains targeted at the UAE for example dubai.hadleyuniversity.com and mbadubai.hadleyuniversity.com.
