What our MBA alumni have to say about the course?

Kelli - It was a natural choice for me to choose Murdoch Dubai. Eventually I will move back to Australia, so I wanted to re-establish my connections back in Australia. Murdoch University is synonymous in Australia, and is one of the highest-ranking universities globally, so it was a natural choice.

Studying at Murdoch University Dubai has given me such a different perspective on global business, as well as the different insights studying with my peers. We are moving into a global society, so having those insights from my peers has been a great advantage to me.

Chris - The Murdoch MBA program has been of benefit to me by allowing me to identify problems within my management style at my current full-time job – something that I would not have otherwise identified.

I chose to study in Dubai as it is in the centre of the world. Coming from South Africa, it's very isolated and even traveling to other countries is very difficult and expensive. With Dubai being a central hub, it makes it so much easier for you to not only reach those places but also to get the experience the culture from countries around you.
