Our School of Graduate Studies offers two unique Master level programs that have been developed to respond to the increasingly globalized and technologically-driven business environment: the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and the Master in Information Technology Management and Governance (MITGOV).

There are three intakes a year for both the MBA and MITGOV programs. The Fall intake starts in September, Spring intake in January and Summer intake in May. However, to ensure a steady flow of quality students to our highly-rated graduate programs, applications are received and assessed throughout the year. We encourage those considering one of our Graduate programs to apply as soon as possible as we process applications on an ongoing basis.

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Faculty of Management - Graduate Business Programs at Canadian University Dubai (CUD).

The recent experience of the financial crisis has ineluctably shown that managers may have taken decisions that were either wrong or miscalculated that effected their own organizations badly and the society in general. The nature of today’s environment is dynamic and highly volatile which requires management to take decisions under uncertainty. Innovating and practical business solutions to problems and opportunities in these increasingly volatile times are becoming more complex and require deeper understanding and quick response. All this mandates the change in the practice of management.

At CUD, we are committed to deliver an education based on the Canadian curriculum, giving us internationally recognized quality and credibility. Since its inception in 2008, our Master of Business Administration program has emerged as one of the leading professional business education programs in the UAE and across the MENA region.

Delivered by multi-national faculty who hold both international credentials and extensive experience in both business and academia, the program offers you the opportunity to choose from five specialized concentrations, to meet your academic and professional goals.

With the emergence of information technology as a key driver of the modern business environment, we have added to our flagship MBA program a new Master of Science program (called Master in Information Technology Management ) considered the first program of its kind in the region.

Our graduate programs’ key success is the focus upon developing students’ practical understanding of fundamental management concepts/principles through case studies, innovative partnerships and interactive seminars. Our programs also provide unrivalled opportunities to develop professional business networks among your peers.

The dynamic, fast moving, and highly competitive business environment of the 21st century requires an innovative, globalized outlook. Our graduate business programs will prepare you today for the challenges of tomorrow.
