UAE. The University of Manchester, with one of the world’s top ranked business schools, is showcasing its full range of part-time MBA programmes at the QS World MBA Tour 2017, in the UAE.

The QS MBA Fair is open to registered visitors and creates the opportunity for candidates to meet student counsellors from The University of Manchester Middle East Centre.

QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) recently ranked the Manchester Global Part-time MBA as 5th in the world, 2nd in the UK and 3rd in Europe, in its ranking of distance online learning MBA programmes.

ABU DHABI: WEDNESDAY MAY 17TH AT THE CROWNE PLAZA ABU DHABI FROM 6.00PM-10.00PM.

DUBAI: FRIDAY MAY 19TH AT THE H HOTEL DUBAI FROM 2:30PM-7.00PM.

The Middle East Centre has supported more than 2,000 part-time MBA students based in the region and has graduated more than 1,000 students since opening in Dubai Knowledge Park in 2006, making it the largest and fastest growing centre in the University’s international network. The part-time study option leads to the award of the internationally recognised Manchester MBA degree awarded by the University of Manchester.

The Manchester two-year Global Part-time MBA programme is now structured around four practical themes - Management in Practice; Value Creation in Business; Tailoring Your Journey; Professional Skills for Business. Students can also further personalise the MBA programme with a range of electives to suit specific goals and interests, and there are further options to accelerate the programme to 18 months. The MBS part-time programme provides as much face to face time with faculty as most full-time MBA programmes, with workshops hosted in Dubai.

Randa Bessiso, Middle East Director at The University of Manchester, comments: “The QS World MBA Tour is a great platform for The University to meet prospective MBA students in the UAE, where around 50 per cent of our current MBA students reside. Our Global Part-time MBA students are typically mid career managers or specialists looking to switch career direction from a specialist role to general management, or to accelerate their current management careers. All these learning routes lead to the award of the same world class Manchester MBA degree awarded by the University of Manchester.”
