The Jeddah College of Advertising is a member of The University of Business and Technology (UBT), located in the dynamic and vibrant city of Jeddah.  It works within the general objectives and guidelines of the University, and strives to make the motto “Education for Job Opportunities” real.  This college is the result of an inter-institutional cooperation agreement between Buckinghamshire New University, UK, and the University of Business and Technology. The general purpose of this college is to provide students in Saudi Arabia and her surrounding countries an exciting opportunity to study Advertising and its related fields in truly international ways that focus on hands-on applications and training, rather than pure theoretical study.

The rigorous study programs in the college of advertising are international in scope and non-traditional.  All classroom instruction is conducted in the English language.  Newly purchased production technologies and Mac-based creativity labs in the college are considered to be state-of-the art.  There is a women’s and a men’s campus, and all professionals are encouraged to apply, accordingly.  Currently, students can select from one of three specializations in the Advertising curriculum: (1) Advertising Management, (2) Advertising Communication, and (3) Advertising creative design.

Teach courses in the undergraduate curriculum, such as: advertising management, introduction to advertising, digital technologies in marketing, integrated marketing communication, advertising communication, and advertising creative design. Undergraduate advising is also part of the overall teaching responsibilities.  Scholarly research productivity and service to the department, college, and university are likewise expected, since UBT is a research-intensive institution.
