(MENAFN Press) The appeal of the world's premier business qualification “ the Global MBA “ continues in the Middle East amongst business people and employers, as the regional economy continues to grow and EXPO 2020 is set to attract fresh talent to the UAE. Manchester Business School (MBS) Middle East Centre in Dubai has enrolled 93 new students onto its 30-month part time Global MBA programme in the January 2014 intake - MBS already supports more than 1,500 part time MBA students in the region and offers two intakes each year. 50 per cent of the new students are resident in the UAE and 10 per cent of the new students are sponsored by their employers.



Around half of the new students “ all working professionals - are resident in the UAE with the balance residing in other countries within the GCC “ notably Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait - and wider Middle East. 13 per cent of the new students are women and 14 per cent are already educated to Master's degree level. Many of the new students hold senior positions in some of the world's leading multinationals and regional companies.



The MBS Middle East student base has now grown to more than 1,500 part time MBA students and is the largest student cohort in the international network of Manchester Business School. In addition, the MBS Middle East Alumni Group serves a growing community of around 2,000 former students in the region.



Current MBS student, Martin Hughes, CEO and owner of Carranmore, a Dubai-based management consulting and company formation practice serving SMEs across the GCC, comments: "MBS' flexible part-time MBA study format is a very atractive option and the MBA programme content and networking opportunities are highly valuable. Personally, I have used the MBA programme as a bridge into launching my own management consultancy business in Dubai and could not have done this without the practical knowledge and learning I acquired, the networking I did with other senior business people and the confidence that the MBA programme has given me. It really is a transformational experience."




MBS continues to innovate elements of its successful part time Global MBA programme to keep it relevant and at the forefront of business practice. New options for MBS' 2014 MBA students include cutting edge elective modules such as 'Sustainable Business' and 'Venture Capital and Private Equity'.



Ms. Randa Bessiso, Director Middle East at Manchester Business School, adds: "The MBA is still the global flagship business qualification and a pre-requisite for many people building serious careers in international business. The calibre of our latest MBA students is impressive and one of the key factors in our success in the region “ students want to study and work alongside experienced, capable and motivated colleagues, as well as with world class faculty; where you study and who you study with are increasingly important in a crowded MBA market. As the regional economy continues to strengthen and high profile successes such as Expo 2020 reinforce business confidence, companies are investing in their best people to develop and retain their valuable skills and experience. Competition for talent continues and an MBA gives business people and employers an edge."
