MBA at Strathclyde or Hult (Dubai)


Mimi123

I'm a graduate from the American University of Sharjah (AUS)..i have 8 years experience in Marketing...i was thinking of a good MBA program in Dubai ...i can't afford AUS as their MBA is too expensive ..

I noticed that Strathclyde has good reviews as well as Hult...and their fees are affordable to me..
i just need help to decide which one should go for...i love that Hult has a big campus and it's internationally well known and that many employers hire their graduates in dubai..plus i think their marketing staff r working very hard to inform people about their programs...i see Hult more in the media....
but i also liked that Strath is part of a great university and it's triple accredited ..but i can't see many people in dubai who recognize it ..
please give me more details about both to help me decide...and if there is a third option (affordable) which i should consider too..
thanks

There are so many part-time MBA options in the UAE. Strathclyde is certainly a strong option, as are AUD, AUS, Bradford, Cass, HEC, Insead, London, Manchester and Zayed.

As for Hult, I don't quite recognise your description of it "internationally well known and that many employers hire their graduates in dubai" etc. I think most people will be better off at a traditional business school with AACSB and/or EFMD accreditation.
