The Faculty of Business and Economics strives for the continuous development of students’ academic skills and abilities in order to provide the local, regional, and global market participants with qualified business leaders. The Faculty, at both the undergraduate and graduate programs, has decided to adopt innovation in education by introducing new majors and updating its curricula to be at a par with the emerging market needs and characteristics.
Embedded in its vision, the Faculty has chosen to shorten the distance between academia and the business community by partnering with the major players in various sectors and industries. Thus, Faculty members have succeeded to blend the theoretical foundations with practical case studies and experiences in their attempts to make the educational life of students resemble to the real business world up to a large extent.
Our view about business educational excellence and continuous improvement is manifested in the IACBE accreditation of all the BS and MBA programs in which the Faculty has to show on annual basis the degree of achievement of its stated student learning outcomes and operational objectives.
The Faculty also seeks to shape the personality of its students by means of implanting and strengthening in them the business ethical and moral standards. Furthermore, communication and interpersonal skills are at the heart of our programs as of the early years of education so that students are prepared to show a high level of professionalism and business values in their internships and careers.
