  • Email received from BOA says they do not offer MBA degrees ("Please be informed that we are not involved in any activities related to MBA."), but BOA website still says "Give your career an instant boost with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the prestigious Griggs University, USA. The classes are held here under the aegis of Blue Ocean in Dubai but students receive their MBA degree from the US." Also ... "The MBA program spans one year and is as affordable as Dhs 35,000, payable in installments. Moreover, the first 100 students stand to receive a tuition waiver." Both pages undated. Contact details given as Extension Centre: Dubai, UAE. Mobile +971-50-5979202, telephone +971-4-3592928, email educatn@eim.ae which are, or were, contact details for Griggs University office in Dubai (not confirmed).

  • BOA not found on KHDA website as a licensed educational institute but websites for related institutes say their courses are accredited by someone. Note that BOA is not a branch of an overseas college or university, nor is it a UAE based college or university. Certificates for the courses offered by BOA will be issued by the relevant overseas institute.
