As part of its mission to become a world-class university, the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) is expanding its graduate program offerings at both Masters and Doctoral levels. The accounting department is launching the first AACSB-accredited MPA program in the region to meet local demands for practitioners and managers alike. [+]

As part of its mission to become a world-class university, the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) is expanding its graduate program offerings at both Masters and Doctoral levels. The accounting department is launching the first AACSB-accredited MPA program in the region to meet local demands for practitioners and managers alike. The Accounting Department has obtained (in 2012) the first AACSB-accounting accreditation in the GCC and MENA region, and the tenth worldwide outside North America. As the professional accounting field is highly needed in the country, this program was considered to attract top businesses and companies from around the world. The MPA program caters for practicing accountants and managers who have chosen the professional path, and would like to further their education with a post-graduate degree in accounting. The degree will also be a natural route to a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA). Students whose first degree is not accounting, or with limited or no background on accounting and/or Business will have to successfully complete foundation courses before they are formally admitted to the program. However, those courses will not count towards the final credit hours of the program. For those students who have limited background in accounting (mainly business students), they will be asked to successfully complete two foundation courses, before they are admitted to the program. As for students with no relevant degree (mainly non-business students), they will be asked to take four courses. In addition, each applicant with no business background will be subject to an individual assessment on a case by case basis to make sure that the pool of students have the basic competencies and knowledge (mainly in economics and statistics) needed for the program. Teaching will be through evening sessions. Each semester (Fall and Spring) will be divided into two quarters, two courses offered each quarter. This translates into students being able to do 8 courses every academic year, needing 3 semesters to complete the 12 courses required. Each course is equivalent to 3 credit hours which are equivalent to 48 contact hours (inclusive of class hours, compulsory group work, and supervised field projects). The objectives of the MPA program include the following: Enable graduates to have a high level of functional and technical competence in accounting that surpasses market-offered competencies. Cover much wider areas of accounting than any of the professional accounting certifications that tend to be narrowly specialized. Develop personal and business competencies (technical and non-technical) of graduates and provide them with an excellent foundation for successful professional careers. These competences are knowledge and professional skills essential to career success, such as research skills, analysis skills, judgment skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills, and group interaction skills. Enable graduates to apply best accounting theories to their own practices, which form the basis of a sound accounting profession in the region and internationally. Enable graduates to meet one of the criteria for enrollment in DBA programs. Enable accountants who are yet to obtain professional certifications to complete the required minimum credit hours of higher education study (for example the 150 credit hours required for the American CPA certification). Admission Requirements Admission to the MPA program will be based on the following criteria: A cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or equivalent, in all undergraduate work. A Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited university recognized by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. A score of at least 6.0 on the IELTS Academic exam or equivalent. This test score must be less than two years old at the time of application. Candidates will be required to have a formal interview in English. Candidates will be required to submit two recommendation letters. Candidates with no degree in Accounting but with a business background will be required to successfully complete two prerequisite foundation courses. Candidates with no degree in accounting and no business background will be required to successfully complete four prerequisite foundation courses. In addition, a case-by-case assessment will be made for each candidate. A complete application package must include the following: Completed application form; The required non-refundable application fee stated on the form (AED 1000). This fee must be paid prior to consideration of the application; Two certified copies of official transcripts from all Colleges or universities attended (the applicant must arrange for these to be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar and Dean of Enrollment); and An official copy of the applicant’s IELTS certificate or equivalent. Final decisions concerning a student's acceptance into the program rests with the MPA Admissions Committee. [-]

MSc in Aviation Security

Emirates Aviation University
Campus Part time 18 months September 2017 United Arab Emirates Dubai

The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. [+]

Masters in United Arab Emirates 2016/2017. MSc in Aviation Security The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. The areas of Aviation Safety or Aviation Security are closely related and the MSc Aviation Security / MSc Aviation Safety programmes contain five modules that are core to both and deal with common issues such as risk management, human factors, strategy, operations and planning. Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each programme therefore contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialisation is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area. By completing five core and three specialised modules, plus a subject area Project, students may obtain an MSc in either Aviation Safety or Aviation Security. If they wish to obtain a second MSc in the alternate specialisation on top of the first award, learners may complete the three additional specialised modules plus a second Project in the other subject area. Why enrol on this programme? The MASAS programme is one of very few degree programmes in the world to address those needs. The awards provide graduates with knowledge of management, safety and security issues in aviation, and the ability to establish or administer safety or security programs in business, industry, or government. The programme offers the graduate student a professional capstone for any background in aviation. Accreditation The MSc in Aviation Security is a dual award programme conferred by Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University, UK. The EAU award is accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) in the UAE. Career prospects The exponential growth of the aviation sector requires a parallel growth in appropriate specialised qualifications that provides employers with an element of confidence in the ever changing and complex business environment. The MASAS programme comes as an ideal opportunity for applicants seeking growth or new opportunities in the field. A typical student may have a number of years' experience in his or her particular field of safety or security expertise (or may simply be seeking a career change towards those fields). The student may probably already be in a junior or middle management role (or seeking an upgrade). He or she may probably have an enthusiasm to implement safety or security management systems across departmental boundaries. On graduation the student will gain a Dual Award qualification from two internationally respected institutions. The graduate will be ready to shoulder a significant level of responsibility for defining and implementing the employer's safety or security policy. Upon the completion of the master’s programme, opportunities also exist to complete a PhD research degree at Emirates Aviation University awarded by Coventry University, UK. Course outline The course consists of eight modules and a project/thesis. Core Modules 1. Aviation Safety and Security Risk Management 2. Human Factors in Aviation 3. Air Transport Management and Strategy 4. Crisis Management and Emergency Planning 5. Airport and Airline Security Operations Security Modules 6. Aviation Security 7. Aviation Security Legislation 8. Aviation Physical Security 9. Project/Thesis Mode of delivery The programme is delivered on a part-time basis, in five day blocks per module, held every two months. Modules span the weekend to facilitate minimum disruption for participants in full time employment. All classes are delivered at our new campus located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC).

When I chanced upon S P Jain’s MGB program offering a specialization in Investment Banking & Wealth Management, I realized that the best was not far away. Having completed the academic portion and pursuing my internship with an investment bank in the Corporate Advisory space, makes me well comprehend the way my learning lived at school. It was so resourcefully practical. All the theories/models/ideas taught in class are of great use in the real world of corporate boardrooms. In addition, the way of thinking and cultural acceptability encouraged throughout the program, especially through subjects like Global Business Environment/Strategy paved a great way for us to appreciate and shadow the dynamics of this globalised world." - Prakarsh S. Jain MGB Class of 2013 [-]
