Bayt.com to host virtual MBA fair
Dubai, October 22, 2013
Professionals interested in seeking an MBA degree are invited to sign up for an online education fair to be held from October 27.
The four-day ‘Bayt.com Virtual MBA Fair’ is being hosted by Bayt.com, a leading job site in the Middle East, with Manchester Business School as platinum sponsor and Audencia Nates School of Management as silver sponsor.
The fair aims to provide a convenient platform from which potential students and institutions can interact directly without the need for a physical venue, said a statement.
Students can discover and interact with leading business schools from around the world, empowering them to make informed decisions when choosing the right programme to take their career to the next level, it said.
Going for higher education was among the top three career-related resolutions of professionals in the Mena region for 2013, along with ‘getting a better job’ and ‘getting a better salary,’ according to a Bayt.com “Mena Professionals’ New Year Resolutions’ poll in December 2012.
Another poll entitled ‘Online Education and the Job Market in the Middle East’ also revealed that online education is viewed in a more positive light today than it was five years prior to the poll, while 85.2 per cent of professionals in the Middle East are ‘for’ online education. Another 66.7 per cent believe that a mix of both online and classroom education would be the best type of education.
Suhail Masri, VP Sales, Bayt.com, said: “The fair is part of our mission to empower people with the tools and knowledge to build their lifestyles of choice, which can start from the comfort of their own homes.” - TradeArabia News Service
