After going through following blog https://www.uowdubai.ac.ae/blog/how-postgraduate-degree-will-boost-your-career I wish to take a MBA course from UAE. What are the career scopes ?

    Hi folks, recently gone through following blog posts, https://www.uowdubai.ac.ae/blog/uae-emerging-hub-international-students and felt of continuing my post graduation there in UAE. How wise will be my decision? Does Dubai boom in serving career opportunities?

    There’s no justice in the UAE – I learned that in a Dubai prison by David Haigh

    You have to remember it is NOT a democracy. Social justice causes, civil rights advocacy, discussing political reform could all land you in jail.
    A young woman forgot that there's no gender equality; she was the victim of a sexual assault and went to report her assault to the police. Instead of taking her complaint and lookibg for her attacker, she was detained for lewd morals and having sex without being married -- it was a diplomatic problem to get her out.
    So, yes there are jobs, and it is the most liberal of the gulf states especially toward foreigners - as long as you have a Western passport and no opinion on most Democratic values (such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, gender equality..) you'd be okay. But don't think that it's a democracy and don't take your rights for granted.

    Been there. Nice place to visit, wouldn't dream of going to school there.

    Say something mildly un-PC at a Western school, and about the worst you'll get is shaming on facebook and twitter. Try standing up in a school in the UAE and announce that the moral choice for those who oppose Sharia restrictions on women is to convert to another religion, and I'd guarantee that the reaction would be a bit stronger than a tongue lashing on twitter. Though, it certainly might still involve lashing of a different kind...
