As demand for MBA graduates continues to grow, aspirants and applicants can meet the world’s top business schools and receive one-to-one specialist CV advice at QS World MBA Tour events, to be held across the Middle East this summer. The tour will visit five locations across the region: Cairo, Riyadh, Jeddah, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai.
The events provide attendees with access to globally-renowned institutions including London’s London Business School, Spain’s IE Business School, and France’s HEC Paris, recently ranked 4th in QS’s annual ranking of European MBA programs amongst many others.
Other research undertaken by QS suggests that now is an optimal moment for aspirant MBA applicants to take the course. This research finds: a flourishing MBA job market, with 14% global growth reported in 2015; 10-year return on investment of $0.69 million yielded from European MBA courses; 20-year return on investment of $2.9 million yielded from European MBA courses; and Global MBA average ROI of $2.5 million (research performed by GMAC).
Financial incentives are not the only pull factors associated with the MBA. Though 82% of alumni surveyed by GMAC reported their MBA to be financially rewarding, its survey also finds: 73% of surveyed graduates report faster career advancement as a consequence of acquiring an MBA; 80% report that it assisted them in their development of leadership qualities – essential at a time when employers report the need for higher ‘soft skills’ proficiency among graduates; and just 7% of surveyed MBA alumni would refuse the opportunity to take their MBA degree again, if offered.
With a flourishing job market and a course that offers unparalleled opportunities for both career development and personal development, the argument for taking an MBA remains as strong as ever. To this end, the QS World MBA Tour will bring the world’s top MBA schools to Cairo (14th May), Riyadh (16th May), Jeddah (18th May), Abu Dhabi (20th May), and Dubai (21st May), providing all interested with an exclusive opportunity to: speak with admissions directors from top business schools; attend workshops devoted to improving one’s GMAT score; apply for $1.7 million worth of scholarships to a top MBA-providing school from QS; complimentary QS TopMBA Career Guide for first 100 attendees
Additionally, Bayt our exclusive careers partner and Middle East’s leading job site will be running an appointment based CV clinic at the event.
