MBA | Egypt


Hello there,

I've been pondering about enrolling in MBA program to boost my business knowledge given that I'm not a business graduate and also to advance in my career, also worth mentioning that I'm more interested in finding opportunities outside of Egypt (Europe preferably or Australia as my brother already lives there).

Currently ESLSCA has MBA program that costs around 75k EGP (almost 5k US dollars), they scholarship kind of discount for people urban cities, I tried to use the search board but got even more lost :D

From what I understood they used to be only members of the AACSB but I can see now they're also accredited by it, would you recommend it for me? and if it's truly accredited by AACSB, does that accreditation covers Europe and Australia? any other better alternative?

Sorry for storming you with all these questions and thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

It is not accredited by AACSB. I just cannot imagine any circumstances under which this would be the best investment for anyone.

Hi Duncan,
Thanks for the information, I rechecked again and you're correct, the universities are listed so close to each other so I mistakenly thought that the accreditation belongs to ESLSCA.
Considering this is total money squandering, what's best accredit options I have? I know it would be the AUC "American University in Cairo, but it's extremely out of budget.

Would appreciate if you can provide me with a budget friendly one.

Thanks,

I think the options on the page I linked to are excellent. Naturally, I don't really know your goals or your budget. If you are not a business graduate, then the LSE's graduate-entry BSc is the same price as the ESLSCA course, and gives you a degree under the academic direction of one of the world's top ten universities for business: https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2019/business-management-studies

You should look to do an MBA in the country you are interested in moving to.

Click on Duncan's profile and check out the best MBAs for "international students' placement" and check out those that are in the country you want to move to. Those will theoretically give you better chances to move
While there, make sure to click the "Do you need to speak the local language?" link as well!

Yes they indeed are, I'm already enrolled in a Coursera specialization (Digital Marketing by University of Illinois), but 22k~ USD for the MBA is a bit off budget, Maximum for me is around 5-7k USD.

I already work at a multi-national company but not in a managerial level and also for my personal development I need to be aware of business knowledge, since I already have a bachelor degree in Law I think MBA would be a better choice, nothing locally in Egypt you can recommend for me with accreditation?

Than you so much.

Hi George, the problem with the countries I want to move in, Australia for instance, I need to have a work contract before going there, as I need a working visa/permit to stay there and also to be able to cover my expenses, frankly it doesn't seem easy to find work there in Marketing/Procurement, so I was hoping to solidify my knowledge along with my academic accreditation to be a better candidate when a job vacancy exists.

If you can recommend me something in Egypt or even remotely but with 7k USD budget maximum I'd be grateful.
Thanks,

The Amity OU MBA and the LSE BSc are your best options.
