Overview

For those looking to accelerate their career, this MBA program provides the opportunity to become an accomplished global leader in the field of Project Management and thrive in today’s complex business environment. 


Alongside the core MBA courses, you will study the principles of Project Management, Project Planning, Integration and Scope Management and Contract Management and Legal Aspects in ADU’s College of Engineering. The development of leadership, communication, team-building and critical thinking skills, the ability to critically evaluate business performance, as well as an understanding of organization sustainability, are also the cornerstones of this program. 


This MBA program, one of the largest in the UAE, will immerse you in a stimulating and diverse blend of case studies, exercises, group work, simulations and lectures provided. This blended teaching approach is designed to maximize the learning experience, giving you the knowledge and skills to manage, motivate, innovate and, most of all, lead in the challenging world of project management and business.


The program is comprised of eight core courses (24 credit hours) and three concentration courses. Our unique six term structure offers you ultimate flexibility in terms of start date and study schedule and means you can complete your MBA in one year. It also allows you to better manage your workload as you take only two courses per term delivered in the evenings and weekends. If professional or personal commitments dictate that you need to miss a term, it is easy to catch up.  Ours is the only MBA in the UAE that offers such flexibility. 


If you already hold a general MBA degree, or have a professional interest in Project Management, you have the option to take the concentration courses on their own and receive a certification from Abu Dhabi University.


Students should note that up to two concentration courses may only be offered in our Abu Dhabi campus only.

“I’ll be very sad to leave the campus.”


“I decided to complete an MBA with a specialization in Project Management to keep my career options wide open. I find project management itself a really interesting field but, through the MBA courses, I’ve also discovered that I have a love and aptitude for finance and accounting. 


The admissions process for ADU was so straightforward and this ease of communication has continued throughout my time here – faculty and staff are so helpful and every single question I have is answered quickly and informatively.


Although I’m looking forward to achieving my MBA, I’ll be very sad to leave the campus. I’d recommend that everyone completes their Masters – it changes the way you think – and I’d most definitely recommend Abu Dhabi University.”

However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.
