MBA in Dubai


Good Everning everyone!

I've seen a few discussions on this topic, but I decided to raised a new one.
I'm 27 with Finance and Industrial Experience in a total 9 years of experience (1 year in a Management Position).

I'm looking for an Executive or Part-Time MBA in Dubai.

The first two options would be London Business School and INSEAD (in Adbu Dhabi), but I can't afford for it.

Then, there are other few options (worldwide recognized and with the triple accreditation (AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS):

- Manchester Business School;
- Cass Business School;
- Bradford University School of Management;
- Strathclyde Business School.

My intention is more focused in Finance and move to Canada or UK after finishes my MBA here and my current work contract or have a job in the UAE's Finance Market, I'm still not sure on it.

So, my doubts are:
- If I study the MBA in Dubai, will it be recognized as studied in Europe? In other words, If I move to Europe afterwards, will I be able to compete with a student from MBS or CASS in UK for example?
- Considering my profile, which schould would you recommend? I'd like to have current students' opinions as well?

I've put this discussion in the General Forum, because I'd like to have the european students` opinions from these schools as well.

Thanks,
Alexandre

My personal opinion is that you should first read what is already here on this site. I also think that the rankings are excellent guides.

I've already read everything related to these schools in this site as well as seen all the Rankings available (FT, TOPMBA, The Economist, Forbes, Business Week)... Then, I'm in doubt about MBS and CASS, because they are very similar. But, considering my wish to focus on Finance and the possibility to move to London after 3 years, I'm not sure about which one to choose. Also, I haven't found any discussion about the recognition of studying in these schools in Dubai, instead of Manchester or London, respectively.

Well, here are a few points you could have found in the discussion...

- MBS is a part-time MBA but Cass is an Executive MBA, so the cohort is more senior at Cass.

- Cass is generally seen as a finance school. That is partly due to its location in the City, the banking district.

- The MBA alumni network is a good measure of recognition. See How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571
