The Executive MBA (EMBA) programme at AUS is designed for high-potential leaders working to expand their company’s position in global markets. Adapting state-of-the-art business principles to the needs of local enterprises, the EMBA is specifically focused on helping business professionals unlock the growth potential of Gulf enterprises.

Profile

A unique American business curriculum integrates strategic management theory with practical ‘toolkit’ modules that enhance real business skills. Two travel seminars introduce participants to world market leaders in a focused setting.

With more full-time, resident faculty than any other business programme in the area, EMBA students at AUS receive personal attention from professors who understand the context of business in the Gulf region.

Accredited in both the US and the UAE, AUS is a pioneer in the region for curriculum quality and co-educational student learning. Widely recognised for the quality of instruction and the design of its campus, AUS offers an exceptional environment for executive education. This includes the largest academic library in the area and a new, dedicated business building to open in 2010.

Business graduates from AUS hold leading positions in local and family businesses, multinationals and government. Corporate and family business sponsors are encouraged to contact us about arrangements for multiple participants.

Meeting on alternate weekends, the programme minimises disruptions in your work schedule, while the modular approach develops integrated skill sets that can be applied as soon as you return to the office. But don’t believe us; talk to AUS graduates.
