Salman Mankani, EMBA (Dubai) 2009

In 2007, the school launched its Executive MBA programme in Dubai – the first programme of its kind offered in the region by a leading business school, and the first time London Business School has set up its own branded programme outside the UK. The EMBA programme is designed for working professionals who are looking to gain a world-class business education without interrupting their career.

With a choice of two primary study locations – London or Dubai, the EMBA unlocks a global professional network that empowers managers at all stages of their careers. Combining world-class faculty with a cohort of exceptional students, the programme provides access to an unmatched diversity of thought and business insights.

Join the EMBA programme at London Business School and become part of a diverse network of more than 31,500 successful alumni and tap into limitless business opportunities around the world.

Applications are now being accepted for the Dubai and London classes starting in January 2011.
