Don't even consider Middlesex. It doesn't have meaningful international accreditation.

The Bradford program in Dubai is actually an EMBA, and as such it is geared more for people who want to remain on their current career path than those who want to shift industries. That said, it still could suit your goals, but I'd try to have a chat with Bradford's career services to get a sense of what your post-graduation options would be.

You might want to also look into the SP Jain Global MBA program, which is aimed more at people who do want to transition their career. You get time in Dubai, but you also go to Singapore and Sydney as well. Plus, there's a logistics and supply chain management concentration that might be relevant for you.

Hello,

I have received green light from CASS to join their EMBA program starting this March. The total fee for the program is GBP 35,000. My aim was to write GMAT and to take full time MBA from Europe. However, it may require at least a year of serious preparation and the necessity to take a break from current profession. The interesting part of their admission process is their initial assessment methodology. My application was rejected twice earlier at the time when other top schools in UAE were accepting it. Can anyone share your thoughts about this program?

Does this CASS - EMBA program have good reputation around the market (especially in ME)?
Does the post grad prospects are in proportion with the fee of the program?
How the study models of EMBA differ with that of a part time MBA?

I?d really appreciate if anyone can give away the contact details of an alumnus.

EMBA programmes generally are for people already in work who are not looking for traditional MBA career services. The students accelerate in their current career paths or become enterpreneurs. The courses are typically more intensive than on a part-time MBA. The school can connect with alumni.

Cass is the good programme, but a full-time programme in Europe may fit your goals more closely. It's not too late for entry in September at schools ranked 50 to 100, which are still quite good.

Many thanks for your prompt response, Duncan. My intention is to build up my career in Middle East and also I'm bit reluctant to take a long break from work. Which program do you rate most in the region?

The INSEAD and LBS programmes are clearly the strongest.

Cass is also a good school, but not quite on the level of LBS.

By the way, don't put Cass in capital letters. It's a person's name, not a set of initials.
