Hult International business school holds a one year MBA program in Dubai. Hult was ranked by the Economist at 39 globally and 21 in the US. it has NEASC and AMBA accreditation. It is a full time program, but maybe they also offer part time - you should call and ask.

see this flyer for more information:

Hope it helps,

I believe both Hult and MBS fly their faculty into Dubai and therefore the quality of the education is as good as in the US and UK respectively. Be careful of schools who rely on local faculty because in general the quality of teaching is far lower in the UAE than the US.

The biggest difference between Hult and MBS in Dubai is that Hult has its own campus at Academic City and a dedicated local careers service team. MBS does not have its own campus and just uses conference space at Knowledge Village.

I believe that MBS quality of education should not be bad since they fley their faculty from UK.
Actually fees of MBS is much less than HULT.This was also one of the factor for me deciding for MBS.

Fully understand and agree.

Looking at the pricing MBS prices in GBP and Hult prices in USD. The pound has collapsed relative to the dollar over the past 3 months leaving a substantial difference between the two. They were pretty much the same price back in November 2008. Crazy times.

My advice is:

1. Keep checking the exchange rate! I assume if you work in Dubai you earn money in AED. This is pegged against the USD but not the GBP. So you may find the MBS program cost changing on you at short notice.
2. Also apply to Hult (i have friends who have been at both schools, but in the US and UK, and the quality of the teaching is better at Hult in their opinion). But only consider the course if they are willing to give you a scholarship equal to the difference in cost. Since Hult is new in Dubai i suspect their scholarship program will be greater since they will be trying to build their reputation locally.

hi, Hult offers one year MBA
http://www.hult.edu/mba-program/admissions/fees-and-expenses
and fees at Boston and Dubai respectively is $79,800 and $72,595. I wonder how one can finance this fee (except for that you belong to rich business family).

I am talking about part time MBA, and the fees in AED is around 45-50k $.I understand fees is too high, that is why one has to really think if paying from your own pocket.

Hult generally offers some financial aid or scholarships to people accepted to MBA programs:
http://www.hult.edu/mba-program/admissions/financial-aid

Maybe you'd be interested in attending the Pocket MBA program Hult is organizing in a few days in Dubai:
http://www.dkvevents.ae/rep.php?event_id=117&general_id=95&section=about

It's just 100$ for a two day program and there will be plenty of Hult Dubai representatives there that you can chat with, as well as probably some current MBA students at that campus.

Hi

I am looking a part-time MBA or EMBA. I was referring to the rankings specified at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/emba-rankings .

The international EMBA options in Dubai are:

1) London Business School (LBS)
2) Univ of Strathclyde
3) Bradford School of Management
4) Univ of Wollongong
5) Manchester
6) Hult
7) Cass Business School

Which one do you think is better? I think is the best from the rankings perspective, but the course fee is $88K for 20 months, which includes the international assignment. What is your opinion on this?

Also Hult, Manchester, Wollongong, I couldnt find them listed in any of the rankings. Are they good? Do you know anyone who can give a correct opinion on these?

Also, Strathclyde EMBA, it is listed, but obviously #80 in EMBA 2008 and #41 in fulltime MBA 2009. But the course fee is only 20K GBP.

LBS for $88K, do you think it is actually that worth?

Regards
Arun

Hi Arun,

Well Hult does offer full financial aid package for its Dubai campus. What I have heard is that they are offering up to 40% in financial aid and 60% in Loan package.

I have joined Manchester, they offer MBA degree which is at 32nd rank, they dont give EMBA. The course content of Manchester is also good.
I checked with some of my friends in US regarding HULT but nobody knew about it.

Thanks Mavrik and Ammiy

I am looking at LBS, obviously is rated among the top 3, but its expensive and they don't offer any scholarships. Manchester, Hult, Strathclyde are there in the next list. I thought Manchester was also offering Executive MBA in Dubai. Need to re-verify that.

Middlesex is a good 2nd tier UK university. Not sure how they are rated within Dubai, i.e., whether faculty are flown from UK or recruited locally. LBS, Cass, MBS and Hult fly people in from overseas to teach.

AUD is not well renowned as far as I am aware.
