Most of these are very expensive. Is there an affordable one?

I think Bradford and Strathclyde are the only UAE options at that price-point with meaningful international accreditation.

Both are great programs. 

Have you checked LinkedIn? Which degree has more leverage among employers in big techs or consultancies in the region? Should be pretty starightforwrad to figure that out.

Thanks alot Duncan and Mba hipster for you support.
After checking linkedin , I feel Manchester would be the best option because of the network and reputation across Europe and Gulf. 
while I was doing my last search , I found that it provides also global MBA and I read in your comments that it is so close to the full time MBA and also it was the same comment from Alumni.
I am currently considering changing the program to the global MBA instead of full time MBA at Manchester to decrease the risk . (for full time program this year I expect that there is a high probability that many things will be online because of corona)

what do you think about that , will this be a considered a smart move?
or this would affect the my outcome?
Also is there major differences between the 2 programs?

Thanks alot for your help and appreciate your support

Hi Joe. I think this comes back to the discussion we had in April: If your focus is on Europe, then the fulltime programme is better. If you are focussed on the Gulf, then part-time programmes give you the advantage of staying there: https://find-mba.com/board/europe/program-advice-imd-vs-iese-vs-rsm-vs-manchster-60501

I am egyptian who works in the automotive industry and looking to move to big techs or consultancy.

 Thanks alot again ,i can't express my appreciation enough

Also another point,despite I am now considering the global part time program from Manchester to decrease risk as I will continue working. I would like to mention that I got acceptance from full time program with 40% scholarship.
would you help me with your opinion about which program shall I proceed with ?

So you are trying to make quite a big move, both physically and industry... perhaps also in role too. In that case, the full-time programme is a better option. You could take the Dubai study trip, electives in Dubai and projects and an internship in tech/consulting.

Yes, agreed. With the full-time program you'd have better access to career services and would be able to build up your network in the region much more effectively. 

Typically part-time and Executive programs are aimed that people who are looking to do more narrow career moves than you are expecting to do.
