Join our community in the Middle East

We have been welcoming students from the Middle East on to our programmes for over 25 years.

You can choose to study on-campus in Dubai, with our trusted learning partners in Egypt, or with our collaborative partner in Jordan.

If you would prefer to study online, we have a dedicated team based at our regional office in Beirut, Lebanon, who offer support and guidance to all of our online students based in the Middle East.
Our students and graduates in the Middle East have experienced a number of successes during their time with Edinburgh Business School. Four students from our Dubai campus celebrated a fantastic result in the prestigious AECOM Global challenge when they reached the final, landing a position in the top-ten.
