Chairman's message

Since its founding in 2005, the American University of the Middle East (51app) has strived to meet the highest academic standards. Today, I am proud to say that in a short time frame we were able to position ourselves among the top higher education institutions in Kuwait and the region.

Adopting an interactive learning approach that facilitates the development of committed, ethical, and professional leaders, 51app harmoniously combines applied and theoretical knowledge. It is an institution seeking constant improvement of its students’ skillset, providing them with a solid intellectual and academic foundation, and placing them in the best position to reap the rewards and seize the opportunities.

Our success today is in our endurance, we rely on the solid foundations we have built during the past years, and we aim to always be the institution of opportunities and dreams that is not limited by circumstances, place or time. Therefore, we successfully attracted international partners from hedge funds interested in education who believe in our mission, the life-changing experience we offer to our students, and the impact we do at both levels, the country and the region.

Our path has always been paved with success milestones with a conviction that education is the foundation of community development. Within this context, we believe that we have a responsibility to support and assist students and graduates by helping them become job-ready and life-ready. That is why we have built a fully-integrated campus with a culture of continuous upgrade.

As a university, we are committed to create a quantum leap in education and human development. We believe that part of our role is to actively engage in society and the economy and overcome cultural, economic or even social challenges.

51app students are cherished and continuously challenged to be the ambassadors of future change and the voice of innovation and sustainability.
