MBA Student life

Exhilarating. Exhausting. Inspirational. Intense. Everyone's experience of the Cass MBA is different. Most of our Executive MBA students run the gamut of all these emotions, and many more. But almost all agree on one thing; it was worth it.

Societies and clubs

Cass offers more than 40 different clubs and societies, covering a huge range of interests. Some of these are professional, such as finance and entrepreneurial clubs. Some, like the chess and football clubs, focus on sports and culture. Clubs differ from year to year and are based on the interests on each entering class.

The Dubai MBA Experience

Exhilarating. Exhausting. Inspirational. Intense. Everyone's experience of Dubai MBA student life is different.

Most of our EMBA students run the gamut of all these emotions, and many more. But almost all agree on one thing; it was worth the effort.

Find out what Dubai MBA student life is really like at Cass Business School by reading the MBA Perspective, written by current students to give insight into the Executive MBA experience.

More than just an MBA

The Dubai EMBA programme from Cass offers more than academic excellence, world-leading tuition and career support, there are several social activities and clubs for you to get involved in.

From dining or networking events, to guest visits from distinguished business people, to sports and social activities - the EMBA is an exhilarating experience both inside and outside the lecture theatre.

Become part of the Cass MBA International Network

As a Cass MBA alumnus you will have the opportunity to be part of the Cass MBA network of over 6,500 MBA alumni and over 34,000 Cass alumni pursuing their careers worldwide. Use our online directory to make connections and stay in touch with your fellow alumni in the Middle East. Or, if you are re-locating, use it to find Cass Dubai EMBA alumni in your new region as they will be able to provide you with practical advice and support.

Your cohort

You will see the benefits of the Cass MBA network from the first day of your MBA studies when you are introduced to your cohort of high-calibre colleagues.

Members of your cohort will have experience in a wide range of professional fields, from consultancy, IT and banking to pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and the media.

The majority of MBAs on the Dubai programme live in the UAE, but there are students travelling in from the UK, Kuwait, Qatar, Iran, Bahrain, Jordan, Georgia, and as far away as New York!

London networking opportunities

Executives on our London-based programmes come from the world's leading businesses in and around the UK and Europe.

Dubai-based Executives will have the opportunity to integrate with our City of London networks by taking electives at our London campus or international electives (NB additional costs for flights and accommodation will be incurred).

Cass's London-based Executives will also have the opportunity to take electives offered in Dubai. These cross-learning opportunities between the EMBA programme in Dubai and the UK MBA further increase the Cass MBA network and its networking benefits for everyone.

Regional networking opportunities

We offer a range of events designed to bring together our student and alumni communities as part of the Cass MBA network in the region. These have included:

  • Induction reception
