Overview

If you are looking to transform your career, our MBA program, one of the largest in the UAE, offers you the opportunity to become an accomplished global leader ready to thrive in today’s complex business environment in both the UAE and internationally. 


The development of cross-functional knowledge including leadership, communication, finance and accounting, strategic management, research methods, marketing, team-building and critical thinking skills, and the ability to critically evaluate business performance as well as an understanding of organization sustainability, are the cornerstones of this program.

 

You will be immersed in a stimulating and diverse mix of case studies, exercises, group work, simulations and lectures. This blended teaching approach is designed to maximize the learning experience, giving you the knowledge and skills to manage, motivate, innovate and, most of all, lead in the ever-changing world of government, commerce and industry.

 

The MBA core curriculum is comprised of eight core courses (24 credit hours) and two elective courses. Our unique six term structure offers you ultimate flexibility in terms of start date and study schedule and means you can complete your MBA in one year. It also allows you to better manage your workload as you take only two courses per term delivered in the evenings and weekends. If professional or personal commitments dictate that you need to miss a term, it is easy to catch up.  Ours is the only MBA in the UAE that offers such flexibility.

“It challenged me to think unconventionally.”  

"I was already familiar with ADU as I’d been based close to the Abu Dhabi campus when I was doing my military service so it was an easy choice. In addition, the class schedule caters brilliantly to working students with evening and weekend classes, and the six-term model offers great flexibility.

The MBA professors are all passionate about what they teach and, as the classes are small, you get to interact on an individual level with them. One of my favorite courses is strategic management. It really challenged me to think unconventionally which, I believe, should be a vital component of any advanced degree.  ADU is a great choice for working students. It offers quality programs at an affordable cost – you most definitely get value for money."

Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.

The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.

Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
