Part of our commitment is to fulfill the vision of the University, which is to be recognized in Bahrain, in the region and globally through delivering relevant, innovative and quality education, thus producing competent, professional and entrepreneurial graduates.

Further, Master in Business Administration (MBA) programme graduates have management skills that are required to become effective leaders and corporate managers in any business environment.

Ensuring the quality of our programmes is done through the involvement of our competent faculty members, examiners, consultants from other universities, alumni, employers, and industry partners among others. Consequently, MBA, BSBI and BSIB programmes have received full accreditation from the European Council for Business Education (ECBE). This warrants the quality of education that the College is providing to its students. On the other hand, the college ensures holistic development of its students whereby they are immersed in a stronger sense of community encouraging them to participate in outreach programs, competitions and other extracurricular activities within and outside the University, which in turn, develops their confidence. Such activities have improved the students’ academic experience to prepare them fully for their future professional career.
