Overview

Organizational excellence and quality management is the establishment of an internal framework of standards and processes that help an organization achieve consistently superior performance. This framework of standards and processes is intended to engage and motivate employees to deliver products and services that fulfil customer requirements within business expectations.  The growing need for competitive advantage has led to an increase in demand for quality management practices in organizations.

This program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to implement new ideas and increase productivity within organizations, as well as a thorough grounding in the use of quality tools and systems. Courses include Process Improvement, Quality Tools and Frameworks, and Designing Organizations for Excellence. The courses, benchmarked against programs in top-ranked universities globally, will enable you to design plans for organizational excellence, apply various quantitative and qualitative tools to improve quality and customer satisfaction, and implement process improvements with quality frameworks and techniques.

The MBA program 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 manage your workload better 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.

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.
