Master of Business Administration

An MBA is more than a qualification, it’s a state of mind. So think like an MBA student. Choose a course that approaches successful management as a toolkit of skills you can adapt and apply to your unique career demands.

Online MBA

The MBA is an internationally recognized level designed to develop the skills needed for careers in business and management. The value of the Master of Business Administration, however, isn’t restricted strictly to the company world. A MBA may also be useful for people pursuing a managerial career in the public sector, government, private sector, along with other areas. Many Master of Business Administration programs include a core program of subjects, like accounting, economics, marketing, and operations, in addition to optional courses that enable participants to follow their very own personal or professional pursuits.

The Master of Business Administration is now the most famous professional level program from the world. Today there are over 2, 500 Master of Business Administration programs offered globally.

Success Stories

“I looked everywhere, conducted extensive research, both home and abroad for an accredited executive MBA course I can complete online. After some further digging around, I found the best online course at ISM that already had enough experience supporting online learners. As a busy businessman, I appreciate the flexibility of the programme, which suited my busy life quite well. Overall, I am not grateful for my experience in such a top online course, but my strategic business alliances formed with faculty members and course mates have been instrumental in my success after the programme.”

Nasser Hassan

“I have had a number of online courses since my college days but I must say none of them has influenced my area of expertise in the ISM online MBA course. I credit my achievement in the areas of leadership, decision making, organisational behaviour management, and negotiation to this online course. I believe it’s one of the best online courses in UAE that every business leader should join for a change.”
