The higher education system in the UAE has expanded and evolved significantly over the past decade and now offers a wide variety business degrees

An MBA will offer you a wealth of advantages, especially when it's from a well-regarded business school. Getting a high salary after graduation, landing a management position, developing a strong professional network, or even becoming your own boss are just a few of the advantages of studying an MBA degree.

The business world has always been uncertain, as proven by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. During this once-in-a-generation occurrence, companies are scrambling to adapt in real-time. Top executives find their qualifications are not up to par to the new demands of 2020.

The upside to such disruptions to the industry, however, is the MBA experience has evolved to embrace these unprecedented times. The MBA is still the highly regarded degree with innovative universities offering specialised courses to accommodate the ever-changing needs of the future workforce. To help students future-proof their careers, business schools are constantly staying on top of industry trends, broadening their networks, as well as upskilling and reskilling their cohorts.

The global economy is always in need of international students with MBAs from the wide array of quality business schools located around the world. Given the diverse economic impacts associated with the spread of Covid-19, the need for talent capable of navigating fast-changing markets becomes even more critical.

The UAE has lots to offer students and working professionals, from a rich cultural heritage, to astounding new architecture. The UAE is home to one of the world's richest per capita economies, where petroleum and natural gas exports, investing, and manufacturing rule the market.
Through a blend of learning methods, the programmes for an MBA in UAE will prepare students to innovate, motivate, manage and lead in today's rapidly changing global economy.

An MBA in UAE can lead to a business management career in Finance, Health Management, Human Resource Management, Information Technology Management, Logistics, Supply Chain, and more! Students pursuing an MBA here will learn the fundamentals of business principles through coursework focusing on marketing, finance, accounting, management, information technology, law, and ethics.

Earning a Business Degree in the UAE
Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degrees in business and business specialties are available in the UAE at public and private universities. The Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) has been established by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to ensure proper licensure is applied to higher education institutions as well as their degree programmes.

In addition to universities, the UAE also has international universities called global partnerships that are located in special zones called Academic City and the Dubai Knowledge Village. Global partnerships are multi-university complexes that cater to area students who, for whatever reason, cannot study abroad but want to gain an educational experience similar to studying abroad.

Tuition Fees and Length of Programmes
Degree programme lengths are equivalent to that found in Europe, with a Bachelor of Arts taking three to four years and a Master's taking another one or two years. Completion time for doctorate degrees depends on the area of specialisation that the student pursues, with some areas requiring more academic research than others. Tuition fees are much higher in the UAE than most other countries. Although there is financial aid for students who qualify, many do not qualify simply because per capita income is well above average and gas/energy prices are low.

Why Earn a Business Degree in the UAE?
The higher education system in the UAE has expanded and evolved significantly over the past decade and now offers a wide variety business degrees, from a BA in Applied Business and Global Economy to a Master's degree in International Business or Marketing and Finance. Employment opportunities do exist but competition is fierce among companies looking to hire only the best and brightest UAE degree holders.

Dubai is the model city of the globalised economy. Over 90 per cent of the UAE's population are expats, providing a unique opportunity to develop business and communication skills in a truly international setting, giving you the tools to become a business leader anywhere in the world.
An MBA is also a great way to prepare for a changing business environment. The abilities you develop are also the best tools you have to adapt to the unavoidable change of industries, the marketplace, and the ways people do business.
