Hi

can anybody tell me if there's any possible way for not-UAE residents to start a 1-2 years part-time/blended EMBA program while studying and working locally (ie. Dubai) ?

I mean, if one can't financially afford a 1-2 year EMBA program, are there possible ways to find local contractors/firms that are interested to grant work employment during the program span (of course they could be getting by return a higher profile employee at some "discount" rate, so it's a win-win...).
Also, this formula could be regulated by means of some contract for the total EMBA's program duration, plus also continued afterwards for some time - like a "retention" policy..) ?
Makes sense?
I know this doesn't sound so easy going, but I'm thinking about trying to find a solution to the auto-financing problem... ?

I work as supply chain manager in the industry.

Welcome any hint. Thx in advance.
kind rgds,
Fab.

Hi Arun,

Whilst there aren't any scholarships offered by LBS for their Dubai-EMBA programme, students are eligible for the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Scholarship http://www.london.edu/programmes/dubailondonemba/feesandfinancing.html and several have been recipients of this in the past.

That scholarship is only available for Arabs nationals. I am an Indian, and there is nothing for non-Arabs.

Hi,
This is a doubt that I would like to ask to the MBA students of Manchester Business School residing in Dubai.
I just got accepted to the program and I have chosen Dubai as my International center. Since I don't reside in Dubai, can anyone give me an insight as to how frequent I would be required to travel for compulsory workshops? Do they have an online alternative?
I would be great if I get a reply because this is a really important decision to make as I would be self funding my MBA. Thanks!

Dear Arun,

S P Jain Center of Management would be a good option also. It has campus in India, Singapore and Dubai. It is also ranked in India and Singapore.
The Fees is also lower ~ 60Kdhs for EMBA.

Dear guys, what's your opinion about this.

Best regards,

Hi friends,

Still confused which mba to take.

Today I went to Hult fees:- 188k dhs(with 15% tution fee scholarship)..

Does ranking of international MBA matter(of course the top 10 or 50 does), ?coz I know two such schools Heriot watt and University of Wollongong(Australia) these are top 200. and fee 81K dhs to 75Kdhs.

Then there are Manchester Busi school and Stratclyde Univ (uk) which are Top 50 and fees 130 to 150K dhs.

The Strathclyde has it's campus in HCT in Academic city & Qusais. How is this school. worth going???
Their learning method:-
1. Face-to-Face teaching by Strathclyde staff @ HCT. Seminars & workshops & exams by them.
2. Regular local conselling sessionsn by HCT-CERT.

hi MBA-Dubai,

Rankings are useful up to a point. Each ranking is weighted in a different fashion, for instance the FT ranking weights post-MBA salary highly, as well as the quality of the faculty and research. Business Week takes more consideration of student and recruiters opinions. So as long as you are familiar with the methodology used and understand why schools appear where they do, they can be useful.

I would say that accreditation is equally if not more important than the rankings. They give you the reassurance that the quality of the curriculum has been verified by independent bodies.

The main accreditation bodies are
AMBA - UK
Equis - Europe
AACSB - USA

Some schools like LBS are accredited by all 3.

In terms of cost versus value, generally, you get what you pay for. Most accredited schools will have a similar curriculum. For the very top schools, with the toughest admission standards, you pay extra for the brand on your CV and the quality of the students and the alumni network, which will stay with you long after you have graduated. Any MBA should be viewed as a long term investment that will keep paying a return 5, 10, 15 years into the future.

Hi,
I wanted to get an MBA but for all Universities I checked, Hult, LBS, Cass; they needed a minimum of 4 years experience. I am a fresh graduate and still dont have any finance related experience but still want get my MBA early.
And I want to get it from an internationally recognised School.
Does anyone know if there is a program in any international university that provides an MBA without experience?

Hult has a Master of International Business program in Dubai specifically designed for fresh graduates.

http://www.hult.edu/masters-program/programs/international-business

I doubt any ranked business school will give you a true "MBA" without work experience. But no doubt Wollongong and some other local schools may.

This thread has been very usefull, i have done a bit of research and attended some info sessions, still to attend a few the next few weeks and have narrowed my options as follows, as per FT ranking in last 3yrs and costs in GBP:
Ranking (2010/2008/2009)
LBS - 1/1/2 GBP58,212
Manchester - 40/32/32 GBP
Cass: City University- 41/41/41 GBP29,000
Strathclyde Uni - 51/41/30 GBP15,000
Herriot Watt - Edinbrgh 81/92/44 GBP14,580
Bradford -89/87/53 GBP14,000
Hult - 94/ 97/0 GBP39,204

I know the EMBA ranking is different and only a few of those were ranked in 2009 for EMBA.
Does anyone know more about Herriot Watt, Strathcldye and Bradford, price wise they seem better and ranked higher than Hult, which only gives financial aid to North Americans, i am south african so:(

Be careful of using the FT ranking when choosing a school in Dubai. Heriott and Strathclyde dont contribute their student data from Dubai (UAE is not listed as their location). Hult does. By the way not true that Hult doesnt give financial aid to people outside North America. I am from Europe and got a loan + scholarship.

Hi Shazza (and anyone else who can answer)!
I am also from South Africa and I am looking for a part-time MBA in Dubai.
Strathclyde has been recommended to me - what is your impression of this school from the info session you attended?
Do they offer scholarships for South Africans?
Thanks!

I have recently applied for admission in Hult Business School I am presently working in UAE I am planning to quit my job and join MBA how will I get a education loan from a UAE bank as I am an Indian national. I dont have much financial aid from my family for MBA as the fees are too high. But I am very desperate to do MBA from an Internationally recognised BSCHOOL.

Hi Sarah,
Most of the top full-time MBA programmes require at least 2 years of postgraduate work experience. This is because a large proportion of the learning comes from the shared experiences of the class.

If you are looking for a programme specifically designed for students without any experience you should consider the raft of MSc in Management courses that are around. The FT has a ranking of these at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management

London Business School launched a Msc Management last year, which is too new to be included in the FT's list. This is specifically designed for students with less than 1 year of experience.
