Dubai set for big Manchester students' gathering

Dubai, March 22, 2014

This month, Manchester Business School will bring together around 100 part-time Global MBA students from centres around the world to join with over 500 fellow students from the Middle East Centre together with top faculty from Manchester, for a series of MBA workshops in a ‘mini-campus’ format.

The visiting faculty will also lead a series of seminars, which are free of charge and open to the public, said a statement from Manchester Business School.

The March sessions will be hosted at Dubai Knowledge Village as well as Dubai World Trade Centre, as the demand to attend workshops in Dubai increases around the MBS network, and the regional student base continues to expand, now comprising more than 1,700 part-time MBA students.

The Dubai workshops are the largest hosted by MBS anywhere in the world.

During the workshops, faculty from the business school will deliver 17 different MBA programme modules including strategic management of projects; comparative and international business; corporate finance; in addition to group projects and business simulation exercises.

Randa Bessiso, the Middle East director of Manchester Business School, said: “For part-time MBA students there is no substitute for face to face contact with professors and peers. Workshops are intense and demanding but also the most stimulating and productive learning elements of the MBA programmes we offer to students in the region."

"Dubai is also becoming an increasingly popular workshop destination for MBA students from our other international executive centres with more than 100 students choosing Dubai for their workshops this month," she stated.

The MBS Middle East Centre in Dubai Knowledge Village is the largest and fastest growing of the school’s network of seven centres, and supports more than 1,700 Global MBA students in the Middle East. Students, representing more than 85 nationalities, are mature working professionals in middle to senior management positions, working with multinational, regional and local companies.

MBS offers part-time Global MBA programmes for working professionals with a choice of four learning pathways – general Global MBA, Engineering, Project Management, and Finance.-TradeArabia News Service
