The Middle East has always been prospective for Indian jobseekers. After the oil boom in the late seventies of the last century, development of industries other than the oil and gas segment, picked up pace throughout West Asia. UAE was one such country where the industries including but not limited to real estate, construction, insurance, banking, and telecommunications that formed the backbone of the economy started developing and burgeoning rapidly.

Presently UAE is one of the largest economies in the world with the different companies and organizations in every commercial or industrial sector in the cities of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah fuelling the growth and development of the nation. A majority of overseas workers in UAE are Indians many of whom hold MBA degrees.

One finds Indian employees with MBA certification working in the industries of oil and gas, petroleum, information technology, manufacturing, construction, and so on. Most of the Indian employees holding MBA degrees have done specializations in human resources, business administration, finance, international marketing, and international business.

While many Indians hold managerial or executive-level positions, there are many who are employed as fresh MBA recruits. The average salary earned by a candidate who has just completed his MBA and taken up an entry-level position is 9 lakhs INR (about 47,470 AED) per annum.

However, the starting salary varies from organization to organization, and is also dependent upon other factors like any special skills acquired, the size of the company one is employed with, the industry the organization is involved in and so on. Needless to say, the salary rises as the candidate gathers experience. For instance, an employee with an MBA certification who earns about 12 lakhs INR yearly (70,060 AED) will be earning nearly 27 lakhs after he gains five years of working experience.
