UPEI Cairo Campus


The MBA in Global Leadership is a cohort-model MBA program delivered over 16 months. Students complete 14 courses as well as an “MBA Skills Orientation Module” at the beginning of the program. The cohort model enables students to progress through the applied program together as a community of learners, providing strong supports for students to achieve their personal and academic goals.

The MBA program is conducted in workshop-style classes on our Cairo campus, which allows for less lecturing and more experiential learning within the classroom. In addition to international faculty members, we also have state-of-the-art facilities and smart learning tools that allows for distance learning opportunities with the UPEI library resources in Canada. All courses are scheduled on weekends to accommodate working professionals.
