LBS marks 5 years of Mideast ops
Dubai, April 23, 2012
London Business School, which has been consistently ranked among the best in the world for its full-time MBA programme, is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its Dubai Centre.
Since opening its doors in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) in 2007, over 300 professionals have graduated from its Executive MBA programme. Some 53 nationalities have been represented, with students commuting from as far afield as Australia, South Korea and Senegal.
The school also actively works with leading companies in the region, delivering world-class executive education programmes to clients including Saudi Aramco, ADCO and Sabic. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region accounts for its largest client base outside the UK.
To mark the anniversary, Nirmalya Kumar, professor of marketing and co-director of the school’s Aditya Birla India Centre, will deliver a presentation entitled ‘The Emergence of Growth Economies and Corporate Giants’ tomorrow (April 24).
Professor Kumar will be joined by Andrew Scott, professor of economics and deputy dean, and a specially invited audience at an earlier event, where they will host an in-depth panel discussion on ‘New Markets and New Firms: A Growth Agenda.’ – TradeArabia News Service
