Study in Dubai, the business hub of
the Middle East

In 2005, Heriot-Watt University opened its first overseas campus in Dubai. The quality of teaching available matches that found at our Edinburgh campus, with locally-based and visiting lecturers. The full-time MBA programme can be studied on campus for a year, and the part-time MBA programme for two years.  

The Dubai Campus is accredited by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and fully licensed to teach its degrees in Dubai.
