Hult International business school holds a one year MBA program in Dubai. Hult was ranked by the Economist at 39 globally and 21 in the US. it has NEASC and AMBA accreditation. It is a full time program, but maybe they also offer part time - you should call and ask.

see this flyer for more information:

Hope it helps,

I believe both Hult and MBS fly their faculty into Dubai and therefore the quality of the education is as good as in the US and UK respectively. Be careful of schools who rely on local faculty because in general the quality of teaching is far lower in the UAE than the US.

The biggest difference between Hult and MBS in Dubai is that Hult has its own campus at Academic City and a dedicated local careers service team. MBS does not have its own campus and just uses conference space at Knowledge Village.

Actually fees of MBS is much less than HULT.This was also one of the factor for me deciding for MBS.

Fully understand and agree.

Looking at the pricing MBS prices in GBP and Hult prices in USD. The pound has collapsed relative to the dollar over the past 3 months leaving a substantial difference between the two. They were pretty much the same price back in November 2008. Crazy times.

My advice is:

1. Keep checking the exchange rate! I assume if you work in Dubai you earn money in AED. This is pegged against the USD but not the GBP. So you may find the MBS program cost changing on you at short notice.
2. Also apply to Hult (i have friends who have been at both schools, but in the US and UK, and the quality of the teaching is better at Hult in their opinion). But only consider the course if they are willing to give you a scholarship equal to the difference in cost. Since Hult is new in Dubai i suspect their scholarship program will be greater since they will be trying to build their reputation locally.

I am talking about part time MBA, and the fees in AED is around 45-50k $.I understand fees is too high, that is why one has to really think if paying from your own pocket.

Hult generally offers some financial aid or scholarships to people accepted to MBA programs:
http://www.hult.edu/mba-program/admissions/financial-aid

Maybe you'd be interested in attending the Pocket MBA program Hult is organizing in a few days in Dubai:
http://www.dkvevents.ae/rep.php?event_id=117&general_id=95&section=about

It's just 100$ for a two day program and there will be plenty of Hult Dubai representatives there that you can chat with, as well as probably some current MBA students at that campus.

Hi

I am looking a part-time MBA or EMBA. I was referring to the rankings specified at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/emba-rankings .

The international EMBA options in Dubai are:

1) London Business School (LBS)
2) Univ of Strathclyde
3) Bradford School of Management
4) Univ of Wollongong
5) Manchester
6) Hult
7) Cass Business School

Which one do you think is better? I think is the best from the rankings perspective, but the course fee is $88K for 20 months, which includes the international assignment. What is your opinion on this?

Also Hult, Manchester, Wollongong, I couldnt find them listed in any of the rankings. Are they good? Do you know anyone who can give a correct opinion on these?

Also, Strathclyde EMBA, it is listed, but obviously #80 in EMBA 2008 and #41 in fulltime MBA 2009. But the course fee is only 20K GBP.

LBS for $88K, do you think it is actually that worth?

Regards
Arun

Middlesex is a good 2nd tier UK university. Not sure how they are rated within Dubai, i.e., whether faculty are flown from UK or recruited locally. LBS, Cass, MBS and Hult fly people in from overseas to teach.

AUD is not well renowned as far as I am aware.

Hi

can anybody tell me if there's any possible way for not-UAE residents to start a 1-2 years part-time/blended EMBA program while studying and working locally (ie. Dubai) ?

I mean, if one can't financially afford a 1-2 year EMBA program, are there possible ways to find local contractors/firms that are interested to grant work employment during the program span (of course they could be getting by return a higher profile employee at some "discount" rate, so it's a win-win...).
Also, this formula could be regulated by means of some contract for the total EMBA's program duration, plus also continued afterwards for some time - like a "retention" policy..) ?
Makes sense?
I know this doesn't sound so easy going, but I'm thinking about trying to find a solution to the auto-financing problem... ?

I work as supply chain manager in the industry.

Welcome any hint. Thx in advance.
kind rgds,
Fab.

Hi friends,

Still confused which mba to take.

Today I went to Hult fees:- 188k dhs(with 15% tution fee scholarship)..

Does ranking of international MBA matter(of course the top 10 or 50 does), coz I know two such schools Heriot watt and University of Wollongong(Australia) these are top 200. and fee 81K dhs to 75Kdhs.

Then there are Manchester Busi school and Stratclyde Univ (uk) which are Top 50 and fees 130 to 150K dhs.

The Strathclyde has it's campus in HCT in Academic city & Qusais. How is this school. worth going???
Their learning method:-
1. Face-to-Face teaching by Strathclyde staff @ HCT. Seminars & workshops & exams by them.
2. Regular local conselling sessionsn by HCT-CERT.

hi MBA-Dubai,

Rankings are useful up to a point. Each ranking is weighted in a different fashion, for instance the FT ranking weights post-MBA salary highly, as well as the quality of the faculty and research. Business Week takes more consideration of student and recruiters opinions. So as long as you are familiar with the methodology used and understand why schools appear where they do, they can be useful.

I would say that accreditation is equally if not more important than the rankings. They give you the reassurance that the quality of the curriculum has been verified by independent bodies.

The main accreditation bodies are
AMBA - UK
Equis - Europe
AACSB - USA

Some schools like LBS are accredited by all 3.

In terms of cost versus value, generally, you get what you pay for. Most accredited schools will have a similar curriculum. For the very top schools, with the toughest admission standards, you pay extra for the brand on your CV and the quality of the students and the alumni network, which will stay with you long after you have graduated. Any MBA should be viewed as a long term investment that will keep paying a return 5, 10, 15 years into the future.

I know the EMBA ranking is different and only a few of those were ranked in 2009 for EMBA.
Does anyone know more about Herriot Watt, Strathcldye and Bradford, price wise they seem better and ranked higher than Hult, which only gives financial aid to North Americans, i am south african so:(

Be careful of using the FT ranking when choosing a school in Dubai. Heriott and Strathclyde dont contribute their student data from Dubai (UAE is not listed as their location). Hult does. By the way not true that Hult doesnt give financial aid to people outside North America. I am from Europe and got a loan + scholarship.

Hi,
I wanted to get an MBA but for all Universities I checked, Hult, LBS, Cass; they needed a minimum of 4 years experience. I am a fresh graduate and still dont have any finance related experience but still want get my MBA early.
And I want to get it from an internationally recognised School.
Does anyone know if there is a program in any international university that provides an MBA without experience?


Hi Sarah,
Most of the top full-time MBA programmes require at least 2 years of postgraduate work experience. This is because a large proportion of the learning comes from the shared experiences of the class.

If you are looking for a programme specifically designed for students without any experience you should consider the raft of MSc in Management courses that are around. The FT has a ranking of these at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management

London Business School launched a Msc Management last year, which is too new to be included in the FT's list. This is specifically designed for students with less than 1 year of experience.

Hi there.. coming from a fellow IMT,Dubai passout, this should lend some trust in the views expressed below.
The strangest thing bout dis discussion is that no1 has evn bothered to mention IMT Dubai in this thread.
IMT dubai evr since its inception has maintained a tremendous placement record and coupled with its amazing infrastructure and student life makes it the ideal destination for an mba.
wat more can you ask for form an institute that comes from a rich heritage of IMT Ghaziabad back in India with 29years of experience.
PLus it has students from all over the world. givin u a truly global learning experience.
Luck to all

For it's ranking and fees after discount it's value for money.

This is very useful discussion about Dubai MBA. Thanks for the contributors.

I have short listed three universities and find it difficult to make a decision. Can someone help to calarify?

1) Edinburg Business School : ( General MBA 81, 000 AED )
Evaluation through a single exam for subject

2) UOW ( 82 000 AED)
Popular in UAE. Not accredited by AMBA, EQUIS or AACSB. parent univerisity average in Australia

3) Middlesex Dubai ( 65, 000 AED)
When I read their website seems to be good.

If there is any one already in those MBAs or who has completed , please share your experince. Looking for a program which can develop me faster to achieve the next height of career.

Hi all

seems like you all decided on MBS, i got an offer 3 weeks ago and was still waiting for other business schools to respond, Cass also accepted me, but am hoping for Bradford as their fees and payment terms are quite ok.
But i just read something on MBA discounted fees, i thought they were 23 thousand pounds. Does anyone know about the discount, and also the three instead of 2 years was a bit too long for me.
Can you guys tell me why you went with it, and what is the cost, with discount.

Well consider also Strathclyde Businness School. It's about 100.000 aed, (not sure of the exact fee this year) but it's definetly a higher level compared to middlesex and wollongong. It has triple accreditation and is in the to 50 (i think around 41) in the world global MBA ranking of FT. It takes 2 year part time, and is quite flexible.
It's the best or one of the best in term of what you get for the money you spend worldwide (again according to FT).

MBS offer 20%/15% discount on first two semester fees if you apply before approx. 3 or 2 months ahead of the deadline (for exact discount, check-out their website). MBS has an active presence in Dubai (in KV) and centers across the world and ranked in top 50 global business school (check out 2010 FT rankings) and has got triple accreditation (AACSB, AMBA & Equis). Fees (for July 2010 intake) is GBP 23K (excluding discount).

Hi,

I am also thinking to apply for an MBA but in my case it has to be an EMBA since I am moving to UAE (living in Canada now). I am planning to go for an EMBA probably next year around September in Dubai.

The choice for an MBA program is really personal. Just one thing: REPUTATION MATTERS, RANKINGS and SO DOES THE ALUMNI. If you can afford doing the best in terms of reputation it will open you doors. It really boils down to what you are looking to moving forward. Are you planning to move overseas or stay locally? Working for a global firm can lead you to different post and where you 've got the MBA will matter when you compete against other candidates. The MBA can give you a fresh start if you feel that way. There is also impact on the salaries. Check the rankings for this too. Well, what I am trying to say is: try to go for one that will bring you more opportunities (return) for the buck.

I just wanted to know if there are more people looking to apply for this EMBA at London Business School. Do they offer weekends/ Fridays classes or not ? Do they offer any sort of part time ?

I think that's my only challenge.

Please let me know if you know more about this.

Thanks,
Rahul

For all those who want to pursue their MBA in UAE. I would suggest to consider a few facts. As all MBA aspirants know that we need a good GMAT score to join any good B-School. Please try to find out about the GMAT score requirement for the B-Schools offering MBA in UAE and their Main Campuses. You will find that their is a major difference in the GMAT score requirement in UAE, U.S.A & U.K. If getting into a good B-School is what you guys are looking for you should have a good GMAT score. London Business School, Manchester Business School, Insead, Hult e.t.c. Are the B-Schools which are among the top 100 B-Schools across the globe. But it doesnt means that their campuses in Dubai is also given the same rank, exception is Hult Dubai campus which is ranked as 95 in FT rankings.

Has anyone ever thought that to get into LBS, MBS, Insead you need a GMAT score higher than 700. And the requirements for GMAT scores in UAE campuses is 450-550. Now how many among you think that getting a low GMAT score and paying a discounted fee will give you a MBA that is as valuable as the MBA that you do from U.S.A, U.K, France or Europe.

Believe me friends its not worth to do MBA from U.A.E. Please note that American degree or European MBA may fetch you a good job anywhere across the globe. But a MBA from UAE will limit you only to the Gulf Countries and you wont be counted on par with MBA's from U.S.A or U.K

So my friends please think of it before you want to do MBA.

thanks everyone for valuable info !!
i had recently been to the counselling session of MBS in dubai.. i just want to put down some points as well

1) The degree certificate for executive MBA and regular MBA (which is only in UK) are similar and does not mention the centre, for the matter of fact , it does not mention even the specialization, only the transcripts mention that.

2) fees is around 21,300 british pounds (this is discounted price for the coming sem orelse i think the around 23,000.

3) one has to take out 6 days in between every semester (1 sem=6months) for regular lectures by profs from uk who fly down to dubai and the MBA lasts for roughly 3 years with project and this can be accelerated to 2 years basing on performace of 2 sems and the MBA can be completed within 5 years max.

4) the course study is self by books/cds/online/elibraries/etc + the 6 days mentioned above. if someone misses out the 6day lecture in dubai ,he/she can attend this at the next venue which could be either of their 8 centres (india, hk,china,singpre, rio,miame,uk,jamaica). the univ only provides free stay.

4)pay fees in 6 installments. the requirements for selection for executive prog is that the GMAT is not necessary if one has 7 years of managerial/mid level managerial experience.
for people who would choose finance as specialization, they can waive off 2 sems if they are holding professional degeree in CMA/CFP/CPA/CA...etc

5) exams- 3 hours open book exam, more emphasis is given on assignments and exams are given at british council, infact you can appear for exams in any country where a british council is located (it does not have to match with the centres mentioned above)

6) specializations - global/general mba, finance, engineering/construction, sports.

7) someone already mentioned about the
accreditation by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB International


but as someone mentioned that Hult provides job assistance, there is no such thing here and also as yasar434 mentioned, i don't know how this would be ranked or compared to the regular mba from MBS UK..

kindly, someone give me more comparisons for MBS/HULT/LBS...
and also if someone is doing the course already from any of these , kindly give more details as to course, teaching, facilities, etc
basically any info

It seems like this thread is quite popular - the first post is dated February 2009 and the thread's still going strong! Impressive.

The University of Wollongong's Dubai programs have been mentioned a few times in this thread, however, there is also Zayed University that is worthwhile considering.

Naturally, you need to evaluate the return on investment of the EMBAs or MBAs and see if your employer can fund or part-fund your MBA program. But drop them both a line to see how they think they can help your career.

Best wishes!

Hello,
I'm confused between 2 schools, and i'm unable to reach a final decison:
-Edinburgh Business School - Heriot-Watt.

Wollongong is accredited by UAE higher education, but i don't know if that is really an important advantage.

Please let me know your input, especially from students who already attended any of them.

So can any one pls help me in this matter ? I want to know whether wollongong MBA is a reputable in the market in UAE? Thanks

In my opinion University of wollongong and heriot-watt are not recognized by any of the Accrediting bodies of MBA like AACSB,AMBA and EQUIS.

So in my opinon only good schools to consider in dubai are London business school,Hult,Strathclyde,Manchester Business school and Cass's executive mba program.
All of them are really expensive i myself joined Manchester Business School and i am satisfied how they conduct it.

Thanks for you reply.. Yes i have heard about wollongong that it is just an OK sort of uni... Most of their teachers are local & the degree which they give is only acceptable in the UAE and has no international accreditation...the only good thing is that it has a very good fee module and very flexible classes, so one can afford to work as well as study... But in the end one should consider that MBA should be done from a respectable uni cuz this is what u will carry for your whole life..so i think wollongong is out of question.

I have checked HULT website thorughly but i really cant find their MBA fee... somewhere it is written its $26k part time MBA and somewhere its $50K... i am not sure what the exact fee is... secondly i want to know what their GMAT requirement is.. I did GMAT but unfortunatel i didtn score good.. so in that case i might do it again...so is the case with strathclyde... i want to know doing mba from dubai is a better option or one should still do it from their original campus?

Hi rajjeve,

1) Check Univerisity of strathclyde. course timings are only in weekends. MBA starting in April-2011. Manachester Business school starting MBA in Jan, compared to Strathclyde it is expensive, both have almost same accredition.

2) SP Jain- Try to speak with the current students and get their feedback. From my reseatch I found negative result. Their course timing will fit mostly for bachelors. Timing is one week is ON and following weeks is off model. During ON week 6 evening need to attend classess.
You can also check IMT dubai campus accredited by UAE.

Hi,
Strathclyde Busness school is accredited in UAE and also hase triple accredidation (Amba, Equis and AACSB).

The program is part time having mandatory about one weekend per month (with professors from UK) and about every weekend of local counceling.

The ranking for the FT is 41 for the 3 year span.

I am attending it and I am pretty happy with it.
Hope this helps.

Hello Davide
Thanks for sharing your experience. Can you please let me know what degree will you get after doing this MBA, as in would it be strathclyde UK degree or dubai degree?

And secondly, as you mentioned that there are only weekend classes, so do you think of getting good part time jobs, considering the recession dubai is going through?

Hi Davide,

I am also interested in this university , I have only a question unanswered is would 9 hours of local counseling and 15 hours of teaching be enough for a subject study ? (15 hours by UK lecturers, 9 Hours by local counselors) Where as Edinburgh Business school (Dubai) teaching 50 hours per subject by UK lecturers.

Hi.
as far as i know, (i am not graduated yet!) one gets the degree from UK, and one for UAE as the program is identical (even same teacher teach in UK and here). Furtherore, being it locally recognized, I think they isseu also a diploma valid in UAE.

As for what concernss to jobs, as the program is very flexible (could be stretched up to 6 years) most people do have a job.

Look, in my opinion, business management is not rocket science. It requires time and dedication, but the concepts in it selves are not extremely complex (e.g. quantum mechanics).
In that way, whereas it is crucial the quality of the teaching, time in my experience, in not so crucial.

Don't get me wrong, the more time one spends with the teacher, the more one understand the subject, and the level of the teaching increases, however, a good deal of learning has to be done in group of peers and over the books.

PS: an MBA program, often, is a big investment in mater of time and money necessary to carry it out. Please research and make up your own opinion. I.e. don't blame me if then you are not happy with the choice :)

Hi Guys...

This my first post in the discussion board...

I am very thankful to all the peoples who have posted a lot of information about various MBA schools in dubai...

I am also planning to join this year to the group of much-hyped MBA aspirants...

I got several calls from HULT Dubai and they are asking me to complete the online application as soon as possible to confirm the seat in sep 2011 intake and to eligible for their scholarship scheme (upto 30% of the total fee = $61200).
At the same time University of Strathclyde can offer the program by less than 50% of the fees charged by HULT and they are now in the process of their April 2011 intake.
I can see from FT Global MBA & EMBA ranking that U of Strathclyde is on par with HULT School of Business.

I give preference to a school which can guarantee more success to their students during post-MBA.

Can anybody would give me a proper advise in this regard and help me???

Hi, i am also looking for executive program in Dubai. 3 courses i have identified, LBS, CASS and MBS.

Have applied for MBS and waiting for the results. MBS is now no 29 in FT rankings and has many centres. Worskhops are every semester and Cheapest among the 3 above.

Also considered CASS. CASS executive MBA in no 2 in UK and top 15 globally. but need to weigh the once a month workshops which will be quite taxing in terms of time (leaves) and money. Also, CASS costs GBP 15K more than MBS. I dont live in Dubai, but close by Jeddah, Saudi...but still considering CASS because it has electives such as Private equity, Islamic Finance concentration.

LBS is the prestige, globally accepted no 1, but cost and GMAT requirements could prove a hindrance for people whom cant afford to do full time like me..GMAT will take time to study, and I will have to postpone to next year if i really want to do LBS, which i dont think i want to wait...dont think there will be any waiver for GMAT requirement.

Hult, not heard of it, but its damn expensive, Strathclyde is also recognisable but ranking wise below MBS and CASS.

Each course there leads to a qualification from some other school. Most are not UK qualifications. The regular MBA, for example, is from Bharathiar University in Tamil Nadu. The post-graduate diploma will be recognised by lower-quality UK universities. It doesn't seem very innovative to me: just a normal tutoring business for distance learning courses.

PS The regular MBA at Westford's Indian university is named in the footnote on http://www.mywestford.com/mba.html Westford offers several diploma courses and, as far as I can see, only one of them leads to the EdExcel diploma. Indeed, that can be topped up by a few British universities - but none of them are reputed for quality. On this discussions board someone's spoken about the programme leading to an accredited UK MBA, and none of the EdExcel top-up partners are accredited by the respected accreditation bodies (http://www.find-mba.com/accreditations).

Cannot agree with both of you as the fees charged by the above said business schools are not affordable for every one at this point of financial crisis and economic slowdown.
These B-schools are selling the qualifications for extremely higher price taking advantage of their reputation in India.
They cannot cater to the majority of the MBA aspirants.
More players should come to this field assuring quality.

These B-schools are selling the qualifications for extremely higher price taking advantage of their reputation in India. They cannot cater to the majority of the MBA aspirants. More players should come to this field assuring quality.

Hi Hanil,

I think you've really captured the problem when you;ve written about "selling the qualifications". The best business schools really change their students through giving them soft skills, electives, high quality classmates, internships, projects and a powerful alumni network. An unaccredited, unranked degree issued without any contact with the issuing university will be a very different experience. For a lower price, a student could take the LSE's diploma for graduates (http://www2.lse.ac.uk/study/UOLIP/programmes.aspx#generated-subheading3) and have a distance learning experience with a world-class brand.

Of course an MBA isn't a purchase, it's an investment in changing yourself. The best MBAs normally double salaries, making the investment very easy to justify.

Hi Duncan,

Thank you for your valuable contribution to this forum.

I've been working in the banking sector for last 5 yrs and currently working for European bank; managing a private desk for HNW and Corporates in MENA region.

I'm looking to invest in myself in order to accelerate my career progress and have better exposure more senior posts.

I'm eager to find the best EMBA option available in Dubai to fit my goal, so far I came across LBS and Cass and both have an education center within the financial district in Dubai, but LBS fees are double the price but it runs the program for 16m only.

What do you suggest to choose? your help is highly appreciated.

These are very difference programmes. The Cass programme is prices at a substantial discount to the same programme in London (34K rather than 42K) which must reflect differences in the outcomes for sudents. The Cass programme is adapted to the Dubai, with courses like "Islamic Banking and Financial Products","Oil and Energy Economics and Trading" and "Islamic Law of Business Transactions". It is 58% of the price of LBS.

The LBS programme has a wider curriculum, more or less the same as the two-year MBA. I think there's more content and residential time with LBS. The faculty and international options are on a totally different level (for example, in my LBS EMBA I did a Columbia macroeconomics course with Joe STiglitz, the Nobel-prize winner). I think you should sit in on the classes. My overall feeling is that LBS is more rigourous and internationally useful. If you really want to study at Cass, do it in London.

Dear All,

One thing is for sure, please don't join Manchester Business School (MBS) here in Dubai.

I am an existing student. And we are from Dubai, Oman, .., come to study here; but they keep harassing us with their inadequacies, incompetency, and no solutions to our concerns.

Don't be surprised if one of your exam or workshop is not in the country it is supposed to be. And you know this at the end moment.

Be prepared for giving two exams in one day back to back in different locations.

To all these problems they have a simple answer. "It's all decided by the UK office", and no solution, deal with it.

The local team are just puppets, with no communications channel for you to raise your concerns to the UK team.

Its a very bureaucratic and grossly unorganized university, who act on its own whim with utter disregards to the part time students.

Students join MBS by seeing their ranking in FT.com; but that is only for the UK MBS. The situations at the local subsidiaries is abominable.

There are no lectures, no classes, even in the workshops you will have some slide reader dump teacher, whose whole aim would be to just read the slides finish it, and wait to munch on the lunch.

We got trapped here by enrolling here and paying these stupid people!!!

PLEASE please and please YOU Dont make the mistake, which we did by joining MBS!!!

Do yourself and your family a favor!!!


Warm regards,

Fellow student

I wouldn't consider Middlesex since the program is not accredited by AACSB, EQUIS, or AMBA. Bradford's been around longer, but the Manchester program will probably provide a more international network.

I'd look hard at the curriculum to see which one is more appropriate for you. I think Manchester is the more traditional of the two - Bradford offers courses that focus on topics like ethics + sustainability and change management.

What about SP Jain's Master of Global Business program? It also has a Singapore module for a more international flavor. I think Strath might have a better network on the ground in Dubai, but if you ever wanted to go to India or Singapore, SP Jain has more resources in those places.

Hi,

Can anybody guide me about a good business school in Dubai for part time MBA and having some international recognition. If anybody is doing MBA in Dubai, please give your inputs.



MBA costs you a bit, so it's always better to do a detailed check before you apply at any school. Best way to start is to do a search on the ranking.

You would be surprised. A lot of them claiming to be the best are not even ranked in the top 50.

Here's a comparison of two notable international business schools operating in Dubai. You'll see the difference:

http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/hult-international-business-school
http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/city-university-cass

You need to be sure of where you want your study to take you. You need to analyse the current scenario and keep an eye out on the future trends. Islamic banking, energy and government SME, for instance, are some of the sectors that are witnessing tremendous growth of late.

These days Islamic banking is growing 50% faster than the mainstream banking sector. I would definitely recommend it for a career investment. My preferred choice would be CASS because it is offering specialised electives in Islamic financing.

I don't think I'd use FT's Global rankings as a primary indicator of the quality of these schools' Dubai operations. They're both international schools, mainly operating out of the UK. Rather, I'd gauge the schools by other qualities, mainly placements in Dubai and their Dubai-based networks.

2. SP JAIN - not sure whether it requires GMAT score(I havn't appeared for GMAT)
3. University of Strathclyde - not sure about the fee structure.

If anyone pursuing part time program in UAE, kindly provide me details about good universities here. Also is it possible for me to get scholarships for part time programs, since most of the universities (HULT, MBS) are out of my budget.

If you're not already living and working in Dubai, your best bet is to do a full-time MBA. There are only a few accredited schools there that offer full-time programs: SP Jain, Hult, University of Dubai (and the American University of Sharjah, which isn't actually in Dubai, but students can commute.)

Be prepared for giving two exams in one day back to back in different locations.

To all these problems they have a simple answer. "It's all decided by the UK office", and no solution, deal with it.

The local team are just puppets, with no communications channel for you to raise your concerns to the UK team.

It's probably better to stick with a business school that's accredited by AMBA, Equis, or AACSB, since it can be really hard to verify the quality of schools without international accreditation.

In terms of verifiable, long-term success of being able to move from India to Dubai, you should really only be focusing on the full-time MBA options in the area: Hult, the University of Dubai, etc. Some also consider the American University of Sharjah - the commute can be a nightmare though, if you want to live in Dubai.

Thanks Ralph for your valuable advice I understand the importance of these 3 accreditation but can't we think beyond that like all other accreditation are of waste? As in India quite a few has these accreditation n still they give high placement.

My main query is what is market of Dubai do it provide package of 11000AED pm to full time MBA graduates with 2 year of experiences?
