MBS launches new part-time MBA
Dubai, October 29, 2013
Manchester Business School has launched a new, more intensive part-time MBA programme for its global network of centres including the Dubai Knowledge Village.
The programme offers students a global MBA in two years plus a six-month project, which is a total of 30 months or ‘2 years + Project,’ said a statement.
The study option has been introduced to allow working professionals greater flexibility to complete their part time programmes, it said.
The new programme will be available from the January 2014 semester . MBS is also offering a special ‘early bird’ rate on tuition fees for students submitting applications before October 31 for the intake.
The school has reviewed the content for the part-time programme and created a more efficient schedule , ensuring that face-to-face contact time is maintained at a minimum of 250 hours per student over the course of the programme, said the statement.
It is also providing more real time online tutorials, introducing new elective courses and has amended the student assessment process, it said.
Professor Elaine Ferneley, MBA programme director, said: “At Manchester Business School, we have always offered as much flexibility as possible to our part-time students who have to fit their MBA studies into busy working lives. We have always supported exceptional students in accelerating their studies but this new 2Years+Project format opens up the option to all our students, although it is a very demanding choice.” - TradeArabia News Service
