Stafford

Introduction

Stafford was formed in 1993, in the UAE, with the sole intention of providing distance education assistance to the business professionals in the Middle East to achieve good quality internationally recognised qualifications that would mark them as serious managers and advance their careers.

Starting with 7 students in 1993 over a decade later we are involved with an average of 1000 students a year availing distance education. All are serious minded busy managers proving to the world that they mean to succeed.

Stafford is entirely focussed on assisting full-time professionals in business with quality distance learning to accelerate their careers through independent study.

Stafford works throughout the Middle East and Levant region offering distance learning Executive MBA’s, Doctorates, BA’s, diplomas and more.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to the academic and business success of our students, our excellent relationships with our UK universities, our integrity and the high quality of our academic and administrative support staff.

Over the years, we have watched many of our students climb the corporate ladder and reach the pinnacle with their added knowledge through the distance learning MBA and other courses like doctorate and masters. As a result of Distance learning MBA, students have successfully opened their own businesses, or gone on to become directors of multinational companies. Some have totally changed their career paths and have gained the satisfaction of knowing they are in their true element after years in less rewarding work.

And now with over 2000 graduated professionals as friends, we aim to carry our distance learning mission forward to the next generation of students. Our pride in our students is doubled every time we attend their Graduation ceremonies at the University itself.
