The University of Manchester creates access to a world-class MBA for working professionals in the Middle East

The University of Manchester is ranked as the world's 27th best university and among the world's elite institutions for graduate employability and research.

The University is committed to creating access to world-class blended learning opportunities designed to meet the needs of working professionals and continues to move higher in a range of international rankings, confirming its status as one of the world's top universities, focusing on the quality of teaching, research and social responsibility.

In 2006, The University of Manchester launched the Middle East Centre and the flagship Manchester Global part-time MBA programme at Dubai Knowledge Park in the UAE. Today, the Middle East Centre is the largest in the University's international network of centres in key cities around the world, comprising Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Sao Paulo and Manchester.

The University of Manchester's Global Part-time MBA is a two-year faculty-led programme with options to accelerate study further, with as much face-to-face time with peers and faculty as most full-time courses. The programme is structured around four practical themes - Management in Practice; Value Creation in Business; Tailoring Your Journey; Professional Skills for Business; and with options to tailor further.

Since launching, the Middle East Centre has supported over 2,800 part-time MBA students - all highly qualified and experienced working professionals - and developed a community of 2,700 alumni across the region, creating professional networking and other opportunities in collaboration with the wider business community. The centre has graduated over 1,700 MBA students. The University of Manchester was the winner of the 'Best MBA Programme' award at the inaugural Forbes Middle East Higher Education Awards 2019. The Financial Times MBA ranking 2020 ranked the University's Alliance Manchester Business School as 5th in the UK, 11th in Europe, and 45th in the world.

In the Middle East, the University manages a flexible and dynamic portfolio of blended learning programmes that includes the Kelley-Manchester Global MBA, offering the best of US and UK business education and the benefits of two degrees. The latest additions to the growing regional portfolio are the new part-time MSc Real Estate, and MA Educational Leadership in Practice.

The Middle East Centre works in a range of collaborations with professional bodies and industry groups in the region and has forged close partnerships with leading public and private sector organisations through the University's Strategic Talent Partnership programme, helping to enrich the student experience.
