Overview

This MBA program, one of the largest in the UAE, offers you the opportunity to take your career to the next level, become an accomplished global leader in the field of Finance and thrive in today’s complex business environment. 


In addition to the core MBA courses, you will study Investment Theory and Analysis, Financial Institutions and Markets, and International Finance. The development of leadership, communication, team-building and critical thinking skills, and 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, a blended teaching approach designed to maximize the learning experience, providing the knowledge and skills to manage, motivate, innovate and, most of all, lead in the challenging world of finance and business.


The MBA in Finance 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 Finance, 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.

 “I’ve grown up with the University.”  

"As an international student, the supportive ADU environment was very important to me. As soon as I arrived we were taken on field trips to orientate us to Abu Dhabi, there were drivers available for medical appointments and the like, and the dorms are incredible. Life in the dorms was so much fun – we had movie nights and lots of trips -  but, at the same time, it was a super safe environment. A real home away from home. The international accreditations held by ADU were also a deciding factor.

I was originally admitted as an engineering student but quickly realized this wasn’t the field for me. The University were so amazingly flexible that I was able to change to BBA Finance with ease. I loved it from the first course and believe that changing my major changed everything in my life."

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.
