Accredited MBA Programs in the Middle East

In terms of international accreditation, business schools in the Middle East have traditionally been underrepresented. However, in the past few years this has been shifting, and some business schools in the region have gained accreditation from AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS. Although there are a few international business schools, such as Cass, INSEAD, and Bradford — all of which offer MBA programs in the region — this is a list of accredited business schools whose main campuses are officially based in the Middle East.
