In partnership with The University of Strathclyde, the BIBF held a graduation ceremony for 26 business professionals who received their degree of Masters in Business Administration from the University of Strathclyde Business School. The accreditation is one of most renowned certification of its kind in the world, ranked 41st by the Financial Times for Top 100 Executive MBAs.
The Strathclyde Masters in Business Administration Degree is among 1% in the world to be ‘triple-accredited’ by leading MBA accreditation bodies. These include the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (“AACSB”), Association of MBAs (“AMBA”) and the European Quality Improvement System (“EQUIS”).
The BIBF’s Deputy Director, Dr Ahmed Abdulhameed Al Shaikh, stated: “The BIBF continuously strives to provide internationally recognised education that matches local and regional business requirements. Our partnership with the University of Strathclyde is part of these efforts and is considered one of our primary initiatives to provide the opportunity for business professionals to receive one of the most highly sought after MBAs in the world.”
Dr. Ron Bradfield, the Director of Strathclyde Programmes in the GCC, said: “We are glad to partner with the BIBF to bring our highly successful MBA programme to Bahrain. During its duration, our team of experienced and professional business experts delivered Strathclyde’s highly specialised curriculum to the participants, with emphasis on objectiveness and real market conditions. The participants in this programme showed relentless dedication to absorb the knowledge and content of the sessions, and with their graduation today, they’ll be able to join the thousands of aspiring and motivated individuals whose careers were reshaped by Strathclyde’s MBA programme.”
The MBA programme was delivered by a team of academic experts from Strathclyde Business School over weekend segments, which allowed working executives to tackle work and personal life along with student responsibilities.
