Self-funding students normally pay in two instalments per year, and details will be sent with offer letters.

Corporate sponsorship

MBA Sponsorship of one (or more) of your most able managers on the Cass Executive MBA in Dubai will bring substantial benefits to your organisation. We understand that it's a considerable investment to make, but the business advantages will become evident almost immediately.

How do organisations benefit?

Our academics maintain strong links with industry and bring academic as well as commercial credentials into the classroom. Your employees will therefore benefit from a business-fuelled programme that carefully balances theoretical knowledge with practical application and business curriculum. Search our Cass Experts database for more details of our academic staff and their areas of expertise.

Executive MBA Dubai students will be able to tailor their study programme to ensure your organisation's specific business needs are met. As a consequence, your company will gain expertise in increasingly crucial areas such as leadership, organisational entrepreneurship and change management. You will benefit from the new ideas, experiences and best practices of multiple sectors via your employee's contact with tutors, visiting lecturers and fellow students from a leading business school and a wide range of business backgrounds.

MBA Sponsorship provides immediate return on investment

Cass's pragmatic, hands-on approach enables students to apply their newly-acquired knowledge to the workplace immediately. With their enhanced effectiveness, analytical skills and adaptability, they will soon be contributing effective new strategies which improve your company's business practices.

Strengthening your company's leadership talent

By supporting your employee's development, you will be strengthening your organisation's leadership skills and retain your most talented employees. Your investment will promote excellence, innovation and loyalty amongst your workforce as well as save you time and resources in replacing and training new staff.

Transferring leading-edge thinking and knowledge to the organisation

Studying for a Cass Executive MBA in Dubai will give your employee access to the powerful expertise and insights generated by the faculty of a leading business school.

Students will have the opportunity to network with the world's leading business experts in the Middle East and internationally. This will allow them - and you - to tap into exceptional knowledge and resources. This continual input of new ideas and skills can prove invaluable for any company.

All Executive MBA Dubai students will undertake a tailored programme of electives, choosing which subjects to specialise in. The elective choices can therefore be tailored to address specific business needs, enabling the latest management thinking to be applied to relevant issues in your workplace.
