As the national university of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the university has a mandate to lead the nation in terms of human capital development, leading innovation, contributing to economic development and leading society.

Technology and the rapidly changing external environment, which is transforming teaching and research, are challenging the traditional view of the university. Students and wider society require year round access to high quality courses and flexible modes of delivery. The economic context of the GCC and challenges that we currently face of growing the private sector are also challenges that the University of Bahrain must respond to through focusing on producing a high quality and skilled workforce and the next generation of leaders.

The University has a clear focus on a number of areas that will be key to our success, including the newly established teaching and leadership unit to advance our teaching methods and curricula. Targeted and innovative approaches to research through international and industry collaboration will promote our reputation both regionally and beyond. University of Bahrain has significant international reach and global standing through its students and graduates, research and academic partnerships. Technology is key not only to enhance teaching and learning but also to create a SMART campus that is fitting with the digital age that we now live in. The University of Bahrain is central to the economic growth of Bahrain through offering programs and courses that are aligned with the national economic strategy whilst also ensuring sustainability through operating as a commercial and entrepreneurial university.
