University of Manchester hosts free MBA Masterclasses in UAE

DUBAI, July 9, 2017

The University of Manchester Middle East Centre will host two free public MBA Masterclasses in the UAE in July, delivered by a senior business faculty member who teaches on the university’s Global Part-time MBA programme.

The Masterclasses, covering strategic management, are being hosted in Abu Dhabi and Dubai as part of a regular series of events, in which visiting university faculty present sessions offering insights into business and management, and an introductory taste of the Manchester Global MBA programme.

Professor Kevin Jagiello, strategic management director, Faculty of Strategic Management – The University of Manchester, will take the classes in Dubai on July 11 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Sapphire Level 2, Meeting Suite 1, Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.

The classes will be held in Abu Dhabi on July 18 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Baniyas Meeting Room, Hilton Abu Dhabi, Corniche Rd W Al Khubeirah.

The Masterclass will outline the main components of a classic business strategy including two powerful concepts - overviewing a strategic position and assessing the structural attractiveness of a business.

Prior registration is required and can be done at

Randa Bessiso, Middle East director at The University of Manchester, commented: “ Faculty actively share their knowledge and experience with the community through these public MBA Masterclasses, with the aim of providing practical tools that attendees can use at their own workplaces. These sessions by experts in their disciplines and covering leadership, management and strategy, also offer a taster of the Manchester Global Part-time MBA programme and the quality of teaching and fellow peers that our students enjoy.”

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.  - TradeArabia News Service
