Cass Business School’s top-ranked Executive MBA is now delivered in Dubai. The EMBA is ranked third in the UK, seventh in Europe and 29th internationally by the Financial Times in 2011.

Now, in collaboration with Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Cass Business School is offering access to the very latest business-tested thinking to the Gulf, the Middle East and surrounding regions.

Aimed at senior business professionals who want to accelerate their career, while remaining in full-time employment, Cass Business School’s Executive MBA programme is designed to fit around most busy working schedules and is therefore structured to be delivered over one long weekend a month for two years.
