Manchester Business School is highlighting educational opportunities for management in the ICT sector, through its part-time Global MBA programmes.

The school, the UK's largest campus-based business and management school, will be promoting its part-time MBA programmes for the first time at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK, to capitalise on growing demand from the IT industry.

Over 1,000 working professionals in the Middle East have enrolled with the MBA programmes since MBS introduced them to the region, with a significant number coming from the ICT sector, both from those working in IT in the enterprise sector, and within IT and tech companies.

The school says that the programmes can help senior managers and IT professionals to accelerate careers and switch their roles from technical and specialist into more mainstream management roles.

The part-time courses are taught at MBS Middle East Executive Centre at Dubai Knowledge Village, with four learning pathways on offer, in Finance, Engineering, Business (General), and Project Management.

"We are continuing to see strong demand for our part time Global MBA programmes in the Middle East and especially the ICT sector, which accounts for around 30% of our MBA students," says Randa Bessiso, Director, Middle East, Manchester Business School. "An MBA is a career and life changing experience and our part time students have the great advantage over full time students in that they take their learning into the workplace every day, whilst continuing their careers."

MBS also recently launched a programme for companies to develop their managerial staff.
