Manchester Business School recently launched a new, more intensive part time MBA programme which allows students to obtain their Global MBA in two years plus a six-month project – a total of 2.5 years or ‘2+Project’.
The new more intensive study option has been introduced to allow working professionals greater flexibility to complete their part time Global MBA programmes quicker and apply the benefits in the workplace to enhance their careers faster.
The new MBS ‘2+Project’ MBA option will be available from the January 2014 student intake and students still have the flexibility to take as long as five years to complete their Global MBA programme.
Randa Bessiso, the director Middle East, Manchester Business School, said:"The full-time MBA students come from every continent and 90 per cent of them are from outside the UK. The full-time MBA appeals to those students who are seeking a change of career or who are in the early stages of their careers and have the resources to commit to an intensive full-time programme."
"MBS already has a strong presence and reputation in the region based on our very successful part time MBA programmes and both study routes lead to the award of the same world class Manchester MBA degree awarded by the University of Manchester," he noted.
"The part time and full time MBA is the first step of a journey with MBS which continues with a dedicated MBA careers service to help students achieve career goals, and a large alumni network," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
