I am pleased to welcome the latest cohort of the Cass Executive MBA in Dubai, who are wonderfully diverse both in terms of nationalities and professional backgrounds.

I wish them all the very best as they embark on their exciting journey.

For us at the British Embassy, education is a really important part of the partnership between the UK and the UAE, and we are proud of the quality of UK higher education in institutions such as Cass - a leading global business school – and what they bring to this region. Especially on a postgraduate course like this, the students are working professionals who made a choice to return to study. I wish them all the success.

“I am delighted to welcome yet another excellent class of students to Cass Business School’s exciting and transformative Executive MBA programme in Dubai.
