Sharjah, (UAE): The American University of Sharjah (AUS) MBA program is ranked the best in the Middle East region, as per a recent QS Global Business Schools Report. The rank was based on the demands of international employers for MBA graduates.

The ranking, published by, is unique in that it highlights the value of MBA programs based on employer demands of MBA graduates. It was based on over 4,000 responses from recruiters that hire MBA graduates. In addition to the top ranking in the Middle East, the AUS MBA came third when Africa was added to the Middle East.

According to Dr. Patrick McClelland, Director of the MBA Program at the AUS School of Business Administration (SBA), “We are pleased that our MBA program has been recognized as the first in the Middle East among international employers in terms of the attractiveness of its graduates.”

He said, “Our MBA students are prepared to identify, analyze and understand the interrelationships among business organizations and international and domestic institutions in the UAE and throughout the world.” The AUS MBA students “also develop an awareness of societal and environmental needs and concerns as they relate to ethical, professional and socially responsible business practices,” he added.

The AUS MBA and EMBA degrees as well as the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Only fewer than five percent of the world’s business schools have achieved this accreditation.

The AUS MBA program provides graduates with the skills they need to be competitive in today's dynamic, global marketplace and prepares them for productive business careers and enables them to make valuable contributions to the organizations they join.
