Our Executive MBA in Dubai, one of the longest-running in the Middle East, is based in the Knowledge Village and attracts some of the region’s most up and coming business people.
It is a two and a half year part-time programme, focused on managers who want to develop their already successful career through the knowledge and experience gained from studying at a highly ranked global business school.
The programme is taught in blocks every five to six weeks, allowing for time to focus on progressing in your current role.
All our MBA programmes are made up of three stages
Core modules – designed to help you get back in to learning and provide fundamental knowledge of management principles and theory
Elective modules – provide an in-depth understanding of specialist topics that are essential and relevant to the contemporary commercial world. Students choose those that are of most interest or greatest career benefit
Management project – enables you to put the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme to practical use on a relevant management issue
Teaching is in blocks of three days every 5-6 weeks using a variety of learning and teaching approaches, including lectures, case analysis, group work, individual and group problem solving research. Assessment is typically through a blend of assignments and examinations.
We have the prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) which is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration run by the European Foundation for Management Development.
We were among the first business schools in the UK to receive portfolio accreditation for all our MBA programmes (including full-time, executive part-time and distance-learning MBAs) from AMBA (Association of MBAs).
AACSB - We are working towards achievement of the AACSB accreditation in 2012 which would give us the Triple Crown of accreditations.
