The Hull MBA offered in the Middle-east through MDCI Ltd is exactly the same as that offered on-campus apart from some minor organisational arrangements. This introductory section describes those arrangements but for further information, or to apply, please contact MDCI's office (The Postgraduate centre for Gulf College) in The Sultanate of Oman.
The Hull MBA in the Gulf begins with an induction programme at the start of the first module. The modules that follow are taught in comfortable executive conference facilities of major hotels over Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday - every six weeks or so. Class contact time for each module is 36 hours and involves a variety of teaching styles including lectures, group discussions and presentations. Students will also be involved in problem solving and team working exercises.
For the distance taught MBA in the Gulf there are no optional modules, the course structure is as follows:
- Management and Personal Development
- Human Resource Management
- Accounting and Finance for Managers
- Operations Management
- Management Decision Making: A Systems Approach
- The Business Environment
- Strategic Management
- Business Project
- Consultancy and intervention
- Corporate Leadership and Change Management
- International Business
- Research Methods
During the remaining 6 months period you undertake a supervised dissertation, with the support of one of the academic staff from the Hull Business School.
Start dates and duration
The programme starts in Muscat and Bahrain approximately every six months. The taught part of the programme runs for around eighteen months. During that time, MBA students complete thirteen modules each worth ten credits together with the research methods element of the dissertation.
The following six months are spent working independently with expert academic supervision on the MBA dissertation.
Please note that the information that follows describes the MBA as delivered at the Hull campus, and potential Gulf based students should therefore read the information in conjunction with the notes provided above.
Special Note - The Gulf-based MBA, offered through MDCI Ltd, is identical to the MBA offered on campus in Hull. The distance-taught programme in the Gulf is adapted for local delivery by Hull university lecturers, taking into account local work practices, study times and religious observance
