Why Study in Malta?

Located in the center of the Mediterranean, between Europe and North Africa, Malta is the European Union's smallest member state. Famous for its 7,000-year history and 300 days of sunshine, Malta has emerged as one of the most remarkable success stories in the Eurozone. Recognized for its pro-business attitude, state-of-the-art infrastructure and modest costs of doing business, it has become the go-to country for growth-minded entrepreneurs and multinational companies.

High quality of life in a Mediterranean island environment with English as one of Malta's official languages.

Malta relies on foreign trade and given its location this is mainly with the EU, Asia and the US. Its economy is dominated by tourism, manufacturing, technology, and finance. Strong technology infrastructure has attracted firms such as Lufthansa Technik and Dubai’s Tecom; while in terms of indirect investment, the island has become a firm favorite for hedge funds and is ideally positioned geographically and culturally as a financial center in the EU and Eurozone.

As an EU jurisdiction with favorable tax rates, excellent infrastructure, and a balmy Mediterranean climate, the combination looks set for Malta to establish itself as the place of choice for businesses.

Our Campus

AUM is located in Bormla, also known as Cospicua, one of Malta’s iconic Three Cities. The area is rich in culture, varied history and restaurants and cafés by the beautiful waterfront. Our campus, originally designed by William Scamp, was used during World War II as a British naval base. Heavily bombed during this period, the building was left in ruins for many years. The restoration process included efforts to keep the historic preservation of artifacts within the building.
