The American University in Dubai (AUD) is happy to announce that applications are now open for their Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Program.

The EMBA program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs which puts it amongst a select few EMBA programs in the region. Coupled with the AACSB accreditation that the AUD School of Business Administration at AUD holds, putting it amongst the top 5% of business schools worldwide, this means that participants can know they have a degree that is highly reputed and recognized, both locally and globally.

The EMBA program will attract teaching faculty from world-class institutions. Apart from the academic content, the AUD EMBA is the only program in the region which will expose its participants to an integrated soft skills trajectory and personal career coaching as an integral part of the program. Classes will take place once per month during extended weekends (Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday), meaning minimum time out of employment for participants.

“We are excited about the prospect of launching a truly unique EMBA that will add value to the educational landscape in the UAE and further afield,” Maryke concluded.
