I had initially planned on starting in the coming September, but I think the Dubai offer is too good to miss - even if I waited 2 years to start, I'd still be about a year under the average student age.
I never went back and calculated how much I spent at INSEAD. I don't think I want to.

The US programs give the chance to earn during their summer break, but then there's the opportunity cost of the extra time studying.

Wait two years to enter and you'd be one of the older Brits at INSEAD (as indeed I was), despite still being slightly younger than the average for the population as a whole.

Actually, I'm not a Brit... I'm a Lebanese who spent ages 15-25 in the US (yes, I have the Yank accent, sorry!) and the last year in London! INSEAD is my first choice!

INSEAD are opening a "campus" in Abu Dhabi this year, whether its the usual UAE pants uni/scam I'm not sure? might be worth checking out though

It's very possible they'd open a Abu Dhabi campus, likely it would not be for the MBAs, but rather that PhDs doing research... I'll check it out!

The Centre for Executive Education and Research in AD has already opened. The clue to what it does is in the name

No MBA degree from there.

not at all - i was hoping before i got here that i'd pick it up, and i'm sure that if i had spent the last year in an actual Arabic speaking country, Jordan, Egypt etc, then I would be reasonably good by now... but I don't deal with any Arabs at work or in the evenings, so the only input i have is the voice-over woman on MBC/Dubai one

so my knowledge is restricted to things like, American Idol, at-talatah aal hadiyat-ashra' amasaa'n wa al-ashra' KSA, aala Dubai One, and suchlike
