MBA-Dubai

Hi Atal,

Go for CASS which is second to LBS only in Dubai. The fee is higher than MBS but post MBA propects are much better. As to monthly workshops i count it as an advantage to get more opportunities to networking and team work.

Hi,
I am also considering the same options for the same reasons.

However, I am finding Cass too very expensive.

I am considering Manchester. However, the total duration is 3 yrs compared to 2 yrs for others. also, face to face workshops are only once in 6 months.

Would like to interact to some students of MBS to find out more.

Hi, i am also looking for executive program in Dubai. 3 courses i have identified, LBS, CASS and MBS.

Have applied for MBS and waiting for the results. MBS is now no 29 in FT rankings and has many centres. Worskhops are every semester and Cheapest among the 3 above.

Also considered CASS. CASS executive MBA in no 2 in UK and top 15 globally. but need to weigh the once a month workshops which will be quite taxing in terms of time (leaves) and money. Also, CASS costs GBP 15K more than MBS. I dont live in Dubai, but close by Jeddah, Saudi...but still considering CASS because it has electives such as Private equity, Islamic Finance concentration.

LBS is the prestige, globally accepted no 1, but cost and GMAT requirements could prove a hindrance for people whom cant afford to do full time like me..GMAT will take time to study, and I will have to postpone to next year if i really want to do LBS, which i dont think i want to wait...dont think there will be any waiver for GMAT requirement.

Hult, not heard of it, but its damn expensive, Strathclyde is also recognisable but ranking wise below MBS and CASS.

Each course there leads to a qualification from some other school. Most are not UK qualifications. The regular MBA, for example, is from Bharathiar University in Tamil Nadu. The post-graduate diploma will be recognised by lower-quality UK universities. It doesn't seem very innovative to me: just a normal tutoring business for distance learning courses.

PS The regular MBA at Westford's Indian university is named in the footnote on http://www.mywestford.com/mba.html Westford offers several diploma courses and, as far as I can see, only one of them leads to the EdExcel diploma. Indeed, that can be topped up by a few British universities - but none of them are reputed for quality. On this discussions board someone's spoken about the programme leading to an accredited UK MBA, and none of the EdExcel top-up partners are accredited by the respected accreditation bodies (http://www.find-mba.com/accreditations).

2) XLRI- top 5 in India- offers PG-Diploma

3) SP Jain- Dubai- FT ranking 68; offers MBA degree- top 10 in India.

Thanks for this Rajeev. These are great schools. SP Jain students in Dubai can also use their campuses in Australian and Dubai; it's actually an Australian MBA awarded at all three campuses

Cannot agree with both of you as the fees charged by the above said business schools are not affordable for every one at this point of financial crisis and economic slowdown.
These B-schools are selling the qualifications for extremely higher price taking advantage of their reputation in India.
They cannot cater to the majority of the MBA aspirants.
More players should come to this field assuring quality.

Hi Hanil,

I think you've really captured the problem when you;ve written about "selling the qualifications". The best business schools really change their students through giving them soft skills, electives, high quality classmates, internships, projects and a powerful alumni network. An unaccredited, unranked degree issued without any contact with the issuing university will be a very different experience. For a lower price, a student could take the LSE's diploma for graduates (http://www2.lse.ac.uk/study/UOLIP/programmes.aspx#generated-subheading3) and have a distance learning experience with a world-class brand.

Of course an MBA isn't a purchase, it's an investment in changing yourself. The best MBAs normally double salaries, making the investment very easy to justify.

Hi Duncan,

Thank you for your valuable contribution to this forum.

I've been working in the banking sector for last 5 yrs and currently working for European bank; managing a private desk for HNW and Corporates in MENA region.

I'm looking to invest in myself in order to accelerate my career progress and have better exposure more senior posts.

I'm eager to find the best EMBA option available in Dubai to fit my goal, so far I came across LBS and Cass and both have an education center within the financial district in Dubai, but LBS fees are double the price but it runs the program for 16m only.

What do you suggest to choose? your help is highly appreciated.

These are very difference programmes. The Cass programme is prices at a substantial discount to the same programme in London (34K rather than 42K) which must reflect differences in the outcomes for sudents. The Cass programme is adapted to the Dubai, with courses like "Islamic Banking and Financial Products","Oil and Energy Economics and Trading" and "Islamic Law of Business Transactions". It is 58% of the price of LBS.

The LBS programme has a wider curriculum, more or less the same as the two-year MBA. I think there's more content and residential time with LBS. The faculty and international options are on a totally different level (for example, in my LBS EMBA I did a Columbia macroeconomics course with Joe STiglitz, the Nobel-prize winner). I think you should sit in on the classes. My overall feeling is that LBS is more rigourous and internationally useful. If you really want to study at Cass, do it in London.

Dear All,

One thing is for sure, please don't join Manchester Business School (MBS) here in Dubai.

I am an existing student. And we are from Dubai, Oman, .., come to study here; but they keep harassing us with their inadequacies, incompetency, and no solutions to our concerns.

Don't be surprised if one of your exam or workshop is not in the country it is supposed to be. And you know this at the end moment.

Be prepared for giving two exams in one day back to back in different locations.

To all these problems they have a simple answer. "It's all decided by the UK office", and no solution, deal with it.

The local team are just puppets, with no communications channel for you to raise your concerns to the UK team.

It?s a very bureaucratic and grossly unorganized university, who act on its own whim with utter disregards to the part time students.

Students join MBS by seeing their ranking in FT.com; but that is only for the UK MBS. The situations at the local subsidiaries is abominable.

There are no lectures, no classes, even in the workshops you will have some slide reader dump teacher, whose whole aim would be to just read the slides finish it, and wait to munch on the lunch.

We got trapped here by enrolling here and paying these stupid people!!!

PLEASE please and please YOU Don?t make the mistake, which we did by joining MBS!!!

Do yourself and your family a favor!!!


Warm regards,

Fellow student
