UAE. The University of Manchester's Global Part-time MBA programme has opened its second student intake of the year, in July 2019, for candidates in the Middle East.

The Global part-time MBA is being offered with an early bird discount available until the deadline of April 22nd. The early bird comprises a discount of 10% on all programme tuition fees and is offered to all applicants accepted onto the programme, and starting in July 2019.
 
The University of Manchester offers two intakes per year (January and July) for the Global Part-time MBA; the January 2019 intake attracted 85 new students – all working professionals, residing in countries across the region and with the majority living and working in the GCC, especially the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Typically, These experienced senior business people (in roles from c-level to specialist functions and entrepreneurs) are already working in some of the leading local, regional and international companies operating in a range of the region's key industry sectors.
 
The University of Manchester's Global Part-time MBA is a two-year programme with options to accelerate study further, with as much face-to-face time with faculty as most full-time programmes. 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.

An accelerated study route allows senior managers to complete the programme in 18 months. There is also an 18-month Accelerated Finance Pathway option for candidates with professional accountancy qualifications. Students can also further personalise the MBA programme with a range of electives to suit specific goals and interests.
 
Randa Bessiso, Director – Middle East at The University of Manchester, said: "The Manchester Global MBA has consistently attracted very strong candidates from the Middle East since we launched the programme here in 2006. Our students benefit from learning while continuing to earn, the opportunity to acquire and apply new learning and skills quickly in the workplace, as well as a building a professional network of contacts, with the support of a dedicated careers service. Our students are experienced professionals taking more control over their own careers in a relatively slower-growth regional economy."
 
The Middle East Centre has developed into the largest and fastest-growing centre in the University's international network comprising six hubs in key business cities around the world. The centre has supported more than 2,500 part-time MBA students based in the region and has graduated more than 1,400 MBA students since opening in 2006.
