School to showcase MBA programme
Dubai, May 17, 2012
Manchester Business School (MBS) is showcasing its full-time MBA programmes for prospective students in the Middle East, with information sessions organised in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Part scholarships of up to GBP20,000 are available to students for the September 2012 intake, a statement from the school said.
The event will be held on May 17 at the Manchester Business School Middle East Centre in Dubai Knowledge Village and on May 19 at the Hilton Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
Full-time MBS students will attend the main campus in Manchester to complete the intensive 18-month MBA programme. The programme is triple accredited and ranked fifth in the UK, 11th in Europe and 31st in the world, according to the latest (2012) Financial Times ranking.
MBS already runs a part-time MBA programme for more than 1,200 working professionals in the region, from its centre in Dubai Knowledge Village. Both study routes lead to the same Manchester MBA degree awarded by the University of Manchester.
The Manchester Full-time MBA provides a thorough grounding in business theory and practice, with international projects, live consultancy work and internships with high profile, multinational corporations.
The method of hands-on learning offers full-time MBA students around 600 client-facing hours, so students can test theories in real world situations.
Randa Bessiso, MBS director Middle East, said: “the school’s full-time MBA students come from every continent and 90 per cent of them are from outside the UK. MBS has a strong presence and reputation in the region and, with the local support of the counselling and admissions team of the MBS Middle East Centre in Dubai, we believe there will be substantial interest from prospective students in the region for the campus-based MBA programme.”
“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 time for an intensive full-time programme leading to a world class MBA degree,” she said.
Ffion Rees Hughes, head MBA & global programmes marketing, Manchester Business School, who will lead the information sessions, said: “The full-time MBA reflects the very practical Manchester method of learning and includes 600 hours of live consulting interaction with real clients which helps in building networks and developing career opportunities.”
“The programme also provides a 10-week internship opportunity to help build on specific industry experience or even to experience a new business sector.”
