It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. The College of Business Administration (COBA) offers four bachelor degree programs in accounting, finance, management, and management information systems (MIS). COBA currently offers only one graduate program namely Executive MBA program for full time executives. Therefore, the College of Business Administration decided to offer a fulltime regular Masters of Business Administration (MBA) based on the strengths of the current undergraduate programs and market needs.
There are two unique features of the new program: students have the opportunity to complete their MBA by doing coursework and thesis or doing coursework only. In the first option, students need to successfully complete 7 courses (21 credit hours), 3 elective courses and research project (6 Credit Hours which is equivalent to two courses). The MBA with a research project option will prepare students to pursue a Ph.D. degree in the UAE or abroad.
The second option of the program allows students to choose MBA general (7 compulsory courses and five electives) or to choose either MBA Islamic Finance (10 compulsory courses and two electives or a research project) or MBA Heath Care Management (10 compulsory courses and two electives or research project).
I hope you enjoy the MBA program website. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are all here to help you.
