Overview

Bradford has been an established brand in Dubai since 1998; we were one of the first MBA programmes to establish a presence in the country. We are a Triple Crown Accredited School, part of an elite group of universities that has accreditations from AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS - this means your qualification will be recognised throughout the world.  We have also accreditation from the KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority) in Dubai.

The programme will provide you with the strategic, financial and people skills you’ll need to progress and perform effectively at senior levels. The programme combines management theory with real business application. From day one you’ll be able to apply new knowledge and skills in your workplace. You will develop a broad foundation of knowledge in core modules, and focus your studies around a particular sector or discipline in elective modules.

Our state-of-the-art facilities are located in Dubai Knowledge Park. The flexibility of our MBA gives you options to study in Bradford, Toulouse (one module) and online through Distance Learning. All modes use the same platform but deliver it in different ways to maximise the impact. This provides you with excellent and lasting networking opportunities both during and after your MBA.

Our Executive weekend teaching format provides you with a period of concentrated study that has minimal impact on your career. If you are unable to make a weekend you can study the module online, anywhere in the world. Our refreshed MBA has been designed with your future employability in mind and we continue to work with major employers on our MBA Advisory Board and International Advisory Board to ensure our syllabus deals with contemporary issues.
