The Middle East is trying to become an MBA "hotspot"...

For financial services employers in the Middle East, when compared with the CFA qualification, the MBA  has traditionally taken a "backstage" role in recruitment processes. However, this trend is starting to reverse as recently MBA's are beginning to gain reputation, slowly catching up the CFA’s status.

Over the last five years, several top business schools such as INSEAD, HEC Paris or the London Business School have launched EMBA programs in the region, hoping that companies in the region will moreover realize the importance of  an integral managerial education. These MBA programs aren't in any case dirt cheap, but they offer what a CFA can’t, skills beyond the technical.

It is early to say how the MBA's in the region will develop. However, the reputation of the programs taught in the region is growing, either because of the quality of the programs is increasing or because they offer a deep  understanding of how business is done in the Middle East.

New Bradford-Perugia MBA to start this september

So far, Italy hasn't been a natural market for MBA's, apart from prestigious programs like Bocconi's MBA or Politecnico's MBAthere is an absence of a wide array of accredited programs or programs delivered in English.

However, we are starting to see a change in the panorama, as the UK's University of Bradford School of Management and Italy's University of Perugia are launching a new joint MBA program in Spoleto, Italy beginning in September 2011. This new, 12-month, full-time program will be taught by faculty from both schools, but mainly based on the Bradford full-time MBA.

An interesting characteristic of the program is the possibility to do an internship at the end of the program, profiting from the University of Perugia's industry contacts in Italy.
