Starting in the 2010-2011 academic year, INSEAD has announced it will launch its Global Executive MBA program from its Abu Dhabi campus. The decision marks an important milestone for executive education in the region, and an indication of the growing importance of the region in global executive education.
Participants based in Qatar and neighboring countries will be able to take core courses at the Abu Dhabi campus for the first half of the program, and then integrate into a global group for several joint modules with GEMBA participants based in both Europe and Asia.
“The Middle East Global EMBA is a very globally-integrated programme, leveraging INSEAD’s campuses in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East,” says Javier Gimeno, dean of INSEAD’s EMBA program.
Many Gulf countries are experiencing strong economic growth and receiving significant inward investment in education. According to the school, this newly-launched section of the Global Executive MBA in Abu Dhabi allows participants to further develop an understanding of global practices as well as gaining a truly rich and diverse international network.
“It will provide an unmatched international experience in a central location for executives working in the GCC,” Gimeno explains. ” The Abu Dhabi section will join a network with participants from more than 40 nationalities, and will be an innovative programme structure for executives, family business owners and entrepreneurs who wish to advance their management skills and broaden their horizons, not to mention the networking opportunities at hand.”
