Welcome to the Deanship of Research and Graduate Studies.
The Deanship of Research and Graduate Studies forms one of the most important pillars of Applied Science University, Bahrain. This comes from the fact that research plays an important role in any academic institution. Research has a major impact on ASU’s accreditation and ranking and for that reason a strategic research plan has been established in line with the Higher Education Council guidelines in Bahrain. We aim to increase both the quantity and quality of our research output and work hand in hand with the industries in Bahrain and GCC countries.
ASU offers five distinguished Master Programmes in College of Law and College of Administrative Sciences. These programmes are: Master in Human Resources Management (Arabic), Master in Accounting and Finance (Arabic), Master in Business Administration (Arabic), Master in Law (Arabic) and Master in Commercial Law (Arabic). These programs support the scientific research and can be considered as one of the main sources of research at ASU since teaching in the graduate studies should be underpinned by research.
The Deanship of Research and Graduate Studies support scientific research, dissemination of research and provided financial support and deployed university resources to facilitate the task of researchers. There are efforts to priorities research projects to have better community service and development locally and in the regions. The University has set its priorities for research in line with the scientific research priorities set by the National Strategy for Scientific Research 2014-2024 and encouraged its members to focus on applied research related to the local market and community needs.
We encourage our faculty members to publish their research in international reputable refereed journals and conferences. This is very clear from the sort of different award for such efforts together with encouragement and support in participation in conferences, seminars, and workshops locally, in the region and over the globe. The Deanship also supports the publication of books composed by faculty members which plays an important role in enriching teaching courses and research. All publications of our faculty members including journal publications, conference publications and books are available on the Deanship website.
