MBS to host MBA information session
Dubai, January 23, 2008
Manchester Business School (MBS) Worldwide, the international arm of one of the world’s leading business schools, is holding an information session in Dubai for experienced managers interested in its triple accredited MBA programmes.
These programmes are available in the region via blended learning, (combining both self study and face to face workshops). The school’s academic director will explain the programme content, entrance criteria and study options at the information session, which is open to the public and free of charge, said an official spokesman.
Guests at the session can meet other prospective candidates as well as hear first-hand experiences of current students.
The information session will take place at MBS Worldwide’s Middle East regional centre at Dubai Knowledge Village, where business professionals can learn more about the three MBA programmes currently on offer within the region - MBA for Financial Managers and Finance Professionals; MBA for Engineering Business Managers; and the unique MBA for Construction Executives – as well as the DBA (Doctor of Business Administration).
This session will be held at the Manchester Business School Worldwide, Middle East Centre Conference Centre, Block 1 Dubai Knowledge Village on January 26, 2008, between 7pm t 8.30pm.
Middle East director for MBS Worldwide Randa Bessiso believes this session is the perfect opportunity to assess the quality of the programmes and the School.
“The Information Sessions are run by senior managers and faculty from MBS and allow prospective students to pose questions directly to the team and to meet and talk to current MBA students, as well as other fellow prospective candidates. Attendees can also visit the new Middle East regional centre and talk one-to-one about their eligibility and suitability for our post experience MBA programmes, which are specifically designed for working professionals with business experience,” said Bessiso.
MBS, which is currently ranked 22nd in the world by the Financial Times, launched its three blended learning MBA programmes in the region in 2006 through the Middle East centre in Dubai - MBS Worldwide’s fifth international centre.
All MBS Worldwide MBA programmes include a high level of face-to-face contact with MBS faculty and lead to the same MBA degree (awarded by the University of Manchester) as for full-time, campus-based students. – TradeArabia News Service
