Did you know that MBA programmes in the UAE rank among the world’s best? In fact, it is home to six campuses that belong to the world’s top 100 business schools.

Based on the 2015 Financial Times (FT) international rankings of MBA programmes, two of the world’s top 10 business schools are here – Insead, the world’s fourth-best, and London Business School (LBS), ranked second internationally.

In the UAE, MBA course fees vary depending on the campus and the course, but with common admissions requirements: at least two to three years of managerial level and/or professional qualification experience, statement of purpose, GMAT score, official transcript of records (school and/or college), TOEFL or IELTS score (a minimum score of 7.0 may be required if English is not the first language) and recommendation letters.

MBA programmes offered in the UAE include Human Resource Management, Finance, Marketing, Operations and Logistics, Healthcare/International Management and Business Excellence. An M.A. in International Business or Marketing and Finance from global institutions will certainly give you a definite edge in your career.

Several Fortune 500 companies are looking to hire only the most competitive graduates in the UAE, and that sometimes means those who possess an MBA degree.
