Unfortunately financial support for international MBA students at most US universities is very limited, although some schools may offer partial support in certain cases. Have you looked at the Jordanian Fulbright Student Scholarship awards? The 2015-2016 competition for scholarships is now CLOSED but the 2016-2017 competition "window" begins from 1 January 2015 with a deadline for the completed applications to be submitted into the Fulbright Commission offices in Shmeisani no later than 30 April 2015.

These scholarships are offered to Jordanian graduate students for higher study and research abroad for Masters degree-seeking candidates but it is important to note that MBA candidates/applicants MUST have a minimum of 5-6 years of professional/work experience after your last university degree.

If you are looking at a particular school you can see a list of frequently updated financial aid opportunities at various colleges on the EducationUSA website, which is supported by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. There is also an EducationUSA advising office in Jordan, where you can meet face-to-face with experts in your country that can help you search schools, translate information, and learn about your options. Lema Amarin is the advisor there so you should contact her if you have any other questions. Her email is AmarinLM@state.gov. I hope that helps.
