EMBA Programs in Africa


Darwishi
Hello Discussion Board Members,

I'm Egyptian and currently looking at Executive MBA programs in Africa.

I've narrowed my search down to these schools: The American University in Cairo, the Mediterranean School of Business (Tunis,) and ESC Toulouse in Casablanca (in French.)

Any input on these programs is appreciated.

These are three good programmes. AUC is a gold standard, but quite costly. It's nice to see the ESC programme get mentioned. One of my former professors at London Business School teaches at the MSB, and she's excellent.

I think ENPC Paris Tech also runs an MBA in Morocco: http://www.ehtp.ac.ma/index.php/formation-continue/mba/presentation-mba

If Lebanon is possible, then the ESCP ESA joint EMBA is excellent.

Thanks for the info. If cost wasn't a factor, would the AUC program be best choice? It certainly would be convenient for me.

And taking that a step further, do you think it would it be worth the extra cost to do a top program like INSEAD or ESSEC? It would mean more travel, but I'd do it if it was worth it.

Again, thanks for your help! There doesn't seem to be much info out there on EMBA programs in this region.

I think that really depends on your goals. The more ambitous you are, the more you should invest.

The AUC programme feels a little over priced to me. If you can afford that, then it's only a little more to pay for world class, top-tier degrees like the Kellogg MBA in Tel Aviv (of course, many Egyptians won't feel comfortable studying in Tel Aviv, and it can be logistically complex) or the LBS MBA in Dubai.

Thank you for these suggestions. I do like the idea of the LBS program. But I have to decide if the extra investment would be worth it for me.

Yes, while I would consider the Kellogg program, it's not that easy to get to Tel Aviv on a regular basis.

Thanks again for your help.

The school of business seems to have just two staff, neither of whom are full professors: an assistant for accounting and the an associate for finance: http://www.nileu.edu.eg/Faculty.html Both seem to have good PhDs. I would suggest you focus on internationally-accredited programmes.

That's not the case. There's the Maastricht programme, for example, I think Ohio also has a programme.

Thanks for the correction, Duncan - I wasn't thinking of the ones offered by schools based outside of Egypt. Georgia State also offers an EMBA in Alexandria.

I think that's not a programme that leads to the GSU MBA.

Greetings all,

If there is an AACSB accredited school in my home country, doest it worth spending more money on an international accredited school? I understand the value brought from studying abroad such as better command of the language, better communication skills,..etc. but will it substantially affect my potential career prospectives?

Thanks in advance!

Probably. If you want to work for organisations that hire a lot of MBAs internationally, then almost certainly.
