What is NU? Can't see a reference to that on the IESE site.

This programme is one of several launched around 10-15 years ago as part of the IESE Africa initiative. It helped design the EMBA curriculum at Nile, but I don't think that IESE has any active involvement in the EMBA. Nile is not listed as one of the associated schools, for example http://blog.iese.edu/iese-and-africa/

The Nile website is clear that it is a Nile EMBA, not an IESE qualification. As such, it does not have any international accreditation. I am not clear who teaches this course, but they seem to be flying professors in for one-week modules. I am not sure that is the best way to learn, and I wonder what sort of assessment or project work there can really be.

MSM, probably. But it depends on what you're looking for. I hadn't heard about that Toledo program but at that cost it is an exceptional value for an AACSB-accredited MBA.

Right, but beyond accreditation, what are your actual goals? Where do you want to end up in terms of function/industry?

I'm not sure you'd need an MBA for that. Australia or Canada might take you directly as an immigrant. A masters in finance or a masters in accounting might be more suitable.

Most of our companies here in middle east are setting minimum requirements for the financial managers to have an MBA, I needs your recommendation Duncan which is better University of Toledo or Maastricht School of Management (MSM)

I'd suggest Toledo because of the AACSB accreditation.
