      Hi there,

      in general: Yes, it makes sense to study part-time when you want to stay in your job (e.g., to keep on earning money). In fact, there are many different ways on how a part-time can be structured (e.g., modular vs. residential, distance, blended etc.) and thee pure variety should everyone to find the prtogram that is best suited for him or her.

      Second, there is a difference between a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and other Masters (e.g. in Management). The program from UAE seems to be a Master program but NOT an MBA.

      Finally, is the UAE the best institution for you? This is something that cannot be answered with one or two sentences. It depends on what you want and on your alternatives. For instance, if your employer tells you in advance that he recognizes this degree from this institution and recommends you to study there - then it may be a good idea. If you have other criteria such as an international accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA), then it may be a bad idea.

      I recommend you to read carefully my MIM eBook on Business Masters.

      • It helps you to understand the fundamental differences among business masters (including different types of MBA programs and different types of part-time programs.
      • It explains the different types if accreditations and when they are important versus when they are unimportant.
      • It also tells you how to read rankings.
      • Finally, it guides on matching your own career goals with different sort of programs such that you can find the program with the best fit.

      Best wishes
