Prince Mohammad Bin Salman College (MBSC) at Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Economic City recently announced the welcoming of the second class of students for its flagship MBA programme.

Over 6,500 local and international applicants applied for the Full Time and Part Time MBA programme, an unprecedented growth of over 185 per cent from the previous year. Following a highly selective admissions process, the College accepted the top 118 entrepreneurs, leaders and executives from various industries, sectors and backgrounds.

The college’s unique experiential programmes have been developed in collaboration with Babson Global (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Babson College, USA, the number one ranked institution for entrepreneurship), with focus on advancing entrepreneurial and innovative growth within the local and regional professional community.

To supplement these ambitions, the college continues to introduce distinctive executive education and professional development programmes for the government, private and non-profit sectors, including Digital Transformation, Financial Trading, Venture Creation and Design Led Thinking.

“The first year has been a rewarding experience that has granted us invaluable insights on how to further differentiate the Colleges educational offerings,” said Fahd Al-Rasheed, vice chairman of the Board of Trustees for MBSC.

“The extraordinary growth in the number of applicants is a testament to the growing confidence in MBSC’s mission, and we will continue to focus on leadership skills and developing an entrepreneurial mindset that graduates can carry into their personal and professional lives.”

The college further announced that Dr Nabeel Koshak has been appointed as an advisor to the vice chairman, where he will support the College’s objectives. Dr Asma Siddiki, the vice dean of Student Affairs has been appointed as the interim dean.
