Khawarizmi International College founded by Dr. Naim Alradi and has gone through three main stages since its establishment; each stage was approximately ten years:
1- The first stage was from 1985 to 1994, this is the stage before the establishment of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
The challenge at this stage was the absence of a state authority to regulate higher education institutions and accredit the awards. In order to overcome this difficulty, the College partnered with the Institute for the Management of Information Systems in London. Later it shifted to Liverpool John Moores University of the UK so that Liverpool John Moores University were able to supervise the delivery and overall quality of our programs and jointly issue the certificates with Khawarizmi.
2- The second stage was from 1994 to 2003; this is the stage when the Ministry of Higher Education was establishing its standard, policies and procedures.
This was the most challenging stage since we used to hear and witness that the Ministry was establishing very strong standards for higher education institutions; Khawarizmi was one of the first institutions to receive accreditation from the Ministry of Higher Education in the UAE.
3- The third stage was from 2003 to the current year; this is the stage after receiving full accreditation from the Ministry of Higher Education.
The College has transformed from an IT Institute that offered only one Associate Degree in IT to a full scale University College that offers a wide range of Associate and Bachelor Degree programs in Business Administration, IT, Islamic Banking, Health Sciences and Mass Communication. It provides the students with a variety of opportunities that aim to further their education and help open doors for future employment. KIC programs provide its students with theoretical and conceptual knowledge in their fields, but more importantly, they prepare them with the relevant practical skills and competencies in order to embark successfully in their careers and meet required workforce demands.
