The UAE Ministry of Education has announced a closure of all schools and universities in the UAE from Sunday, 8 March 2020 for a four-week period. This applies to all such institutions in the UAE, including London Business School. The measure is part of the UAE Government’s response to containing the spread of COVID-19 in the community and is a precautionary measure intended to help protect the wellbeing of students and the wider community.
The programme office will continue to provide updates to students on alternative arrangements to ensure the impact of this development on their learning is minimised.
Additionally, LBS is following the advice of both Public Health England and the UAE . In instances where this advice differs, the School will generally employ the higher standard of the two, and the School’s FAQs will reflect that.
