An Empirical Study of the UAE Job Market Expectations from Business Education

Auther : Mohamed Y. El-Bassiouni
Adel M. Zayed
Magued I. Osman

The job market in the UAE was surveyed, through a stratified random sample, to collect data reflecting the level of importance of several indicators of business knowledge and skills. A measurement model was fit to the market survey data to establish the validity and reliability of the selected indicators. A confirmatory factor analysis revealed that a model involving three factors, namely, minor and major business knowledge as well as personal and behavioral skills, is necessary to describe the business organizations’ perceptions of business education. Further, the statistical analysis indicated that the private sector assigns more importance to the major business knowledge than the public sector, and that the service organizations value the language skills more than the industrial organizations. The findings indicated also that business organizations are concerned with business graduates’ skills knowledge, and that they give a higher value to certain behavioral and personal skills compared to knowledge. The implications of such results on business education are discussed.
