Top courses to study in Dubai:
One of the first things that comes to your mind at the mention of Dubai is a flashy shopping destination. But what most people are unaware of is that Dubai also boasts of quality institutions offering career opportunities in a host of fields, including management, finance and engineering. One of the interesting aspects of education in Dubai is that besides being a home to well-known domestic universities, the city’s education space is covered by branches of top rated world institutes like the University of Wollongong and Manchester Business School which magnifies Dubai's international repute, especially, in terms of education.

To give you a more detailed view of the education space in the city, we bring you the top courses for study in Dubai:

 

MBA: As in most countries of the world, MBA is the most popular and one of the top courses to study in Dubai. Dubai is known as the land of business opportunities. It is not only one of the most influential cities in the United Arab Emirates, it is also the one which offers enormous job opportunities. Name any big multinational and it has its offices in Dubai. Name any retail brand and it, too, has got its chain in Dubai’s international market. Of course, MBA students fresh out of Dubai’s business schools have their plates full as far as career opportunities are concerned. Business schools in Dubai offer a large   number of specialisations to choose from like international banking, hospitality, tourism, information technology, among others.  Importantly, some of the well-known business schools in the world have their branches in Dubai to enhance industry oriented studies for international students, especially those pursuing executive MBAs. Some of the well-known business schools in Dubai are London Business School, Manchester Business School, Cass Business School, University of Wollongong, American University, HULT International Business School etc.

 

Engineering: Being a business landscape, Dubai is deeply dependent on every new technology launched across the world. The city’s mega buildings are proof that it is as much as advanced in developing cutting edge engineering technology as it is offering a business platform for leaders across the world. Dubai is home to some of the world's finest universities like American University in Dubai and University of Dubai which are known for their engineering programmes. Further, the country offers a wide range of job opportunities for graduate engineers looking for career opportunities in the city. In terms of specialization, Mechanical engineering attracts the highest international students as the field promises a lot of opportunities in not just Dubai but also UAE post studies.

 

Accounts and Finance: Finance is one field that Dubai is most known for. It is, after all, the financial hub of the United Arab Emirates as well as West Asia. Most of the international business houses have their offices in the country which includes major international banks. For a layman, Dubai might signify flashy business deals. However, a lot of financial work goes beyond the retailing.Finance students are hugely popular in the country. 

 

Medicine: For a long time, UAE has been witnessing an influx of foreigners who migrate to the UAE to work in its medicine sector. However, in the last few years, Dubai has seen a surprising increase in the number of international students enrolling in its medical colleges. Dubai has become one of the emerging destinations for medical studies for students from Asia as well as other countries. Quality education apart, two of the major reasons why students are flocking to study in the country are work opportunities after study and the fact that the most of medical schools in Dubai do not require students to go through a major entrance test like  MCAT which is necessary for admission to medical colleges in USA.
