Cass Business School, part of City, University of London, welcomed its eleventh intake for its Executive MBA Programme (EMBA) based in DIFC Academy, reaffirming its commitment to higher education in the Middle East. The incoming students hail from 19 different countries. More than 20 per cent of the class are females, and the average professional experience in the cohort is 11 years.

Cass Business School’s EMBA attracts some of the finest talent in the region, with professionals from over 15 business sectors choosing the Dubai EMBA for their studies. Her Britannic Majesty’s Consul General, Paul Fox and DIFC’s Senior Vice President Operations, Alya Al Zarouni, welcomed the students to the two-year programme, which runs until the autumn of 2019. Several modules in the Cass Business School Executive MBA programme have been updated to better reflect the ever-changing world of business. These modules include: Digital Technology and Business Innovation; Financial Markets and Investments; and Analytics for Business. World-class professors travel from London to teach the modules and to share their knowledge and experience.

Professor Cliff Oswick, Dubai EMBA Course Director, commented:

“I would like to welcome the latest intake of the Cass Executive MBA in Dubai.  The cohort is of an extremely high standard, drawn from a wide variety of industrial sectors, which will add great value to the academic experience.”

Mr Paul Fox, HM Consul General in Dubai, commented:

“It was an honour to be present, again, for the induction of the Executive MBA students. This is the third straight year that I have been able to attend this event, and as in previous years, I was struck by the calibre of the students who represent 19 different nationalities.  I wish them – and City, University of London – every success for the future.”

Dr Kevin Dunseath, Regional Director, MENA and Director of the Dubai Centre said:

“I’m delighted to welcome the eleventh intake to our Executive MBA programme in Dubai. Our students continue to benefit from the expertise and experience of the Cass Business School faculty. These attributes, combined with the diverse professional and personal backgrounds of the cohort, will make for an invaluable learning experience for the class.

“Each year, our network of current students and graduates apply what they have learnt from the EMBA programme to their unique careers, and I am confident that the next two years will greatly help them achieve their long-term goals.”

Cass Business School ranks among a group of only 1% of all business schools worldwide with triple accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. According to the 2017 Financial Times ranking, The Cass Executive MBA (EMBA) is now ranked 28th globally (up from 31st), 11th in Europe, and 5th in the UK.
