New Bahrain varsity to open admissions in Sept
Manama, June 25, 2012
A recently launched art college in Bahrain has launched undergraduate business programmes in international accounting, management, and logistics and will admit its first students in September, said its chairman.
“We are looking forward to providing high quality education to the students in the Gulf Region. We expect our students to benefit from our state of the art programs that will allow them to contribute to the economic development of the region,” said Dr Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University College of Business (TAGUCB).
The programmes accredited by the Higher Education Council in Bahrain will lead to granting the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
The curriculum was developed by a group of international advisors in line with international standards.
Students will benefit from innovative teaching methods that proved to be very successful at the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business in Amman, which received the “Best Educational Institute in Administration Award” from the World Education Congress Asia Awards.
TAGUCB president Dr Abdul Waheed Khan said that the TAGUCB license was granted by the Higher Education Council after a very thorough review and inspection of the facilities and the curriculum.
He added that TAGUCB will be seeking the approval of the Higher Education Council to introduce an MBA programme next year.
TAGUCB worked closely with the Bahrain Economic Development Board during the development and set up of the university, to ensure it matched the needs of Bahrain’s business community.
Kamal bin Ahmed, Minister of Transportation and acting chief executive of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB), said: “We are delighted that TAGUCB have chosen to establish a regional presence in Bahrain, reflecting the Kingdom’s commitment to establishing a leading platform for education opportunities in the region, its diversified business environment and position as the optimum location from which to access the trillion dollar Gulf market.”
In 2010, the Talal Abu Ghazaleh Organisation (TAG-Org) announced that it has decided to set up its regional headquarters in Bahrain, citing its decision as being based on a number of factors, including its tried and tested legal and regulatory framework, the skilled local workforce and its advanced ICT infrastructure. – TradeArabia News Service
