Dubai is becoming a hotbed of recruitment activity as it continues to consolidate its position as a regional and global business and finance hub, a panel of business schools has agreed.
Speaking to the organisers of the QS World Exec MBA Tour, which comes to Dubai on April 3rd, representatives of some of the world's most acclaimed business institutions said that the demand for executive level business MBAs is burgeoning rapidly in the emirate.
"UAE students' contribution to the diversity of the executive MBA cohort is invaluable. What's also interesting is the insight they offer of working in an environment which continues to produce double-digit growth," said Arnold Longboy, director of student recruitment for Europe at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Hina Gonfreville, editor of the QS TopExecEd Guide, added that executive MBAs offer an unparalleled opportunity for Emiratis to dramatically enhance their skillsets while continuing to earn with a company.
The QS World event will also be touching down in Lagos, New Delhi, Shanghai and Beijing on its spring and summer tours.
