EBS caters to a diverse demography of working professionals with an average age of 32 and an average work experience of around 8 years. The hallmark of this institution’s approach lies in its collaboration with renowned universities across Europe and the United Kingdom. Through these partnerships, EBS offers educational programmes like Doctor of Business Administration, Professional Diploma, Postgraduate Diploma, Master’s Level Diploma, and Executive MBA with various specialisations such as business analytics, supply chain, healthcare, project management, artificial intelligence, etc.
EBS provides opportunities for its target audience to experience an enriching learning journey and complete various courses from the comfort of their homes or offices at affordable fees while maintaining a work-life-study balance and enjoying all the required support. All live classes are recorded and made available in the Learning Management System (LMS) and its mobile app, thus allowing learners who may miss any classes due to their demanding schedules to catch up. Also, the modular design of the programmes allows prospective participants to join at different times throughout the year without compromising the quality of education.
Through its live interactive classes, professionals, business leaders, and entrepreneurs from over 95 countries network and connect for opportunities beyond the virtual classroom. This global network enhances the learning experience and provides insights into real-world trends across markets and industries. Unlike traditional academic routes, participants in the EBS programmes are assessed and evaluated based on the practical application of the acquired knowledge to real-life situations, especially in their workplaces.
Central to EBS’ commitment to comprehensive professional growth is its annual graduation event, held alternately in Dubai and Rome. More than a ceremony, these events include leadership workshops and other experiential, fun-filled activities. The institute aims to go beyond the basic graduation ceremony and celebration of academic achievements to nurturing connections and bonds among its alumni.
Mashrook Ali, Co-Founder and Executive Director articulates the vision, “We aim to provide an ideal work-life study programme for executives who wish to upskill and network with professionals worldwide.”
Founded in Leicester, UK, Eaton Business School was acquired by Westford Education Group in 2016. In 2017, the institute moved its operations to the UAE serving the educational needs of its esteemed audience across the globe. The foresight to adopt an online learning model right from the onset and consistent improvements to its learning platform positioned EBS ahead of the pandemic. The institute is not only committed to the success of its students but its employees alike. Its commitment to the employees’ growth, well-being, and satisfaction resulted in it winning some prestigious accolades, including the “Best Place to Work” award for two consecutive years.
Looking ahead, EBS plans to establish its alumni chapters in Africa, UAE, and Singapore, expanding its platform for networking and management upskilling opportunities. The school also envisions expanding into corporate training, targeting decision-makers, including C-suite executives. This strategic move aligns with the positive feedback from business leaders who have experienced EBS’ learning journey firsthand.
