MBA in Egypt


RTB
Dear gents,
If we exclude the AUC (as per its relatively high cost), can anyone please support me by a brief comparison between GUC, ESLSCA, RITI and Arab academy for science & technology and marine transport, in terms of:
- Accreditation.
- Education quality.
- Cost.
Thanks a lot in advance

Try searching the board. The differences in terms of accrediation and quality will be minimal.

Indeed, start with these threads and go from there:

http://find-mba.com/board/africa/nu-or-arab-academ-or-eslsca-31600
http://find-mba.com/board/africa/accredited-mba-in-egypt-14660

... I think that most people here are hesitant to recommend any MBA programs which do not have accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS, or AACSB. Distance learning might be an option though, depending on what your budget is.

May I ask you all plz for help, what about University of Toledo MBA program offered through Amcham? It's AACSB accredited, runs over a period of 15 months, seems flexible and doesn't require GMAT or TOEFL/ILETS as long as you have 3 years of solid work experience and ur education was provided in English language. Does anyone know how to further validate the credibility of this program?

AACSB accreditation is one of the gold standards for MBA programs. It should provide a verifiable education.

Hi Dalia,

Toledo does not require GMAT Test from candidates who have work experience, and does not required TOEFL from candidates who studied in English Language on BSc Degree.

Any Business School has AACSB, AMBA or EQUIS accreditation is Guaranteed to grant you a very qualified MBA.

Hi Dalia,
Toledo seems an interesting choice. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Do you know how much is it currently? and when does the next semester start?

I don't think Cape Breton University offers a management MBA at its partner campus in Egypt, CIC. Instead its masters in MBA in Community Economic Development (which is aimed at public sector and NGO leaders) leads to an MBA. GUC seems to be a better choice for people aiming at private sector management.

Hello All,
The problem is that the MBA at GUC includes 21 topic compared to 15 or 16 at other business schools which will take much longer time.

Well, if that's your concern, the MBA at AUC only consists of 16 courses...

Dears,
I heard about online MBA with around 2500$ through non profit University called The University of The People, which sounds too good to be true, do you know anything about it, is it real, is it trustable, its accreditation, ... ? www.uopeople.edu
Thanks in advance.

Yes, that's a real university but it lacks international or regional accreditations, which are the most respected. However, it's a real US government-recognised degree.

Hello Duncan, I've been using your opinions a lot lately in making up my mind what MBA to pursue in Egypt.

And I must add I'm sometimes surprised how patient you are in replying to (let's be polite and say not very well thought of questions and comments), good luck keeping that pace.

Seeing your quote above, does that mean that UoP's MBA can be compared to that of Edinburgh Business School's one?

I got your replies that however the Royal Charter is an official quality body but it's not one of the international treble accrediting bodies, don't you believe that EBS is at least offering more quality?

And I couldn't find where you point out why the accreditation is very important in workplace? (I don't believe in Egypt, we think a lot about this since we don't question the MBA credentials a lot) and here we are students going through all this search and still didn't make up our mind, so what about a potential employer? I don't think he will go all the trouble to find if someone's MBA is accredited or not, as long as it's "famous" or well known. Just wanted to know your take in this, please.

Thanks a lot :)

Yes, I think the EBS MBA and the UoP MBAs are broadly comparable in quality, although UoP will of course have much more up-to-date study materials and has higher entry criteria since it requires a degree for entry. The Royal Charter is not a quality body. It's not a body at all. It's the certificate that allows an institution to be created. Every UK university has a royal charter, and several hundred other organisations do too. Since every UK university has a charter, it's not a sign of above-average quality or even of minimal quality since charters are not taken away. UoP, on the other hand, does have national accrediation which indicates a higher than minimal level of quality.

Accrediation is important in the workplace because salaries are strongly correlated with accreditation. Perhaps you are right and this does not matter in Egypt. If you really thought that was the case, Egyptians would not be among the most numerous users of this site: they would simply take the most convenient MBA they could find.

Dear All and dear Duncan,
I made up my mind back andI shall proceed to the MBA hopefully at AUC (obviously best alternative) where I applied for Financial Aid and now I'm waiting for their feedback or (if my Financial Aid) has been not accepted I might go for ESLSCA.

My question is, could you please evaluate it for me, I mean ESLSCA?

Thanks for your true help.
