During the second year, students choose four electives from the School´s elective portfolio in London. At this time, students complete an individual management report and a study group project. There will be a four-day module in Dubai on personal skills development.

Our Executive MBA class is comprised of exceptional people who can both contribute to and benefit from the programme. In short, people who are able to bring that 'something extra' to our lecture theatres. As you can see from our current class profile, there is not a 'typical' Executive MBA student in terms of work background and nationality. What all our students do have in common is the potential and motivation to become true global, multi-skilled business leaders who are:
- comfortable and successful in a global environment
- able to effectively manage people and processes
- able to think strategically
- confident in a wide range of functions.
