Achieve a world-class MBA, with convenience.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) from AUS will allow you to achieve a globally recognized and respected MBA from a leading institution, while being able to complete core components online. This program is all about bringing you the very best of what AUS has to offer, at your convenience.

Because tomorrow matters.

Did you know?

  • Students whose undergraduate degree is not related to business may still be eligible for the MBA following the completion of appropriate bridging courses.

  • Many SBA faculty have completed their terminal degrees at some of the world’s leading business schools. They combine international knowledge with regional experience to provide their students with a distinctive educational experience.

  • The blended delivery mode of the MBA is the result of a collaboration between AUS and the University Consortium for Quality Online Learning (UCQOL), founded in 2021 by the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation  (AGF) in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Education and nine leading universities from throughout the UAE.


How does it work?


The program adopts a blended learning course delivery mode that includes both face-to-face and online components. The program offers digital content customized to student needs, catering to different student learning styles and supporting self-paced learning that is flexible. This blended model allows the program to maximize student effectiveness by exploiting the advantages of technology while maintaining opportunities for face-to-face classroom experiences.

Graduates will be prepared for careers in management and leadership positions in both the private and public sectors. They will acquire a comprehensive foundation in the fundamentals of business in the global environment in which they function. They also learn the skills and analytical tools for effective communicating and decision making.

Learn with state-of-the-art technology


The online components of the MBA are delivered using the latest eLearning technology. Two specially equipped studios have been built to remotely deliver MBA content to students in ways that are engaging and efficient. These studios include an illuminated glass board known as a lightboard that  instructors use to explain complex concepts, equations, diagrams and more. Instructors create text on the lightboard using neon fluorescent markers, making the text glow on the glass surface. Teaching sessions are recorded on video, with the footage digitally “flipped” so that the written content on the lightboard does not appear backwards. 

One of the spaces also includes “One Button Studio” technology where camera, lighting and audio are all pre-configured so that the instructor delivering content simply needs to press the record button to capture their lesson. The studio is used to create video lectures, lesson explainers and instructional content, and instructors can add annotations to slide presentations. 

Both studios are equipped with a chroma (otherwise known as a green screen) to be used for video or photo shoots as required.

The AUS MBA program inculcates leadership skills and knowledge in two years that are equivalent to years of experience gained in the workforce. My own personal takeaway is that the earlier you leverage the MBA in your career, the more people you are bound to impress.
