  • Unclear if Griggs University still offering MBA programs in Dubai. No information found on GU website www.griggs.edu (although lots of pages have information about male enhancement drugs when checked), and email received from Blue Ocean Academy in Dubai says they no longer offer MBA programs.
  • Nothing found for Ajman either - previous information indicated that a GU MBA might have been available at a couple of institutes in Ajman.

  • Griggs University does not have a physical presence in the UAE but Griggs University MBA programs can be studied via Blue Ocean Academy in Dubai. Degree certificates will be issued by Griggs University in the USA.
  • Neither Griggs University or Blue Ocean Academy appear to be licensed by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education, or the KHDA in Dubai.
  • Griggs University and Griggs International Academy is a Seventh Day Adventist College in Maryland, USA. The Griggs website says they are accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) in the USA.
  • The Griggs University MBA is also available in Ajman apparently. Maybe the International College of Business in Ajman? Or the International Institute of Technology in Ajman?
