Overview

This MBA program, one of the largest in the UAE, offers you the opportunity to become an accomplished global leader in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management and succeed in today’s multifaceted business environment. 


Aimed at experienced managers, you will study Logistics Management, Technology in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Strategic Supply Chain Management in a Global Environment, along with the core MBA courses. The development of leadership, communication, team-building and critical thinking skills, the ability to critically evaluate business performance, as well as an understanding of organization sustainability, are also the cornerstones of this program. 


You will be immersed in a stimulating and diverse blend of case studies, exercises, group work, simulations and lectures provided by the MBA program. 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 challenging world of logistics and supply chain management and business.


The MBA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is comprised of eight core courses (24 credit hours) and three concentration 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.


If you already hold a general MBA degree, or have a professional interest in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, you have the option to take the concentration courses on their own and receive a certification from Abu Dhabi University.


Students should note that up to two concentration courses may only be offered in our Abu Dhabi campus only.

“The focus is always on applying the learning in the real world.”


Dr. Ertek obtained his PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the USA, which has been ranked number one in the USA for industrial engineering for nearly three decades.


“I feel very fortunate to have been taught by professors at Georgia Tech who are acknowledged as leading authorities in the field of logistics, and warehouse logistics in particular. Being able to build on this knowledge and transfer it to my students at ADU is a source of pride for me.


The Logistics and Supply Chain Management courses are very project-orientated, relevant and up-to-date with real-world examples and real-world applicability. This is the cornerstone of ADU programs. Students are expected to find answers to actual supply chain problems through combining the theory, their own ingenuity, and the use of relevant software tools."

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.
