The overall purpose of the Executive MBA program at KFUPM is to offer a unique learning opportunity for mid-career and senior executives in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and GCC region who wish to enhance their business knowledge and effectiveness while remaining actively involved in their business and professional careers. Our goal is to empower these professionals to take their companies into the future – locally, nationally, and globally.
KFUPM Business School offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, which provides the necessary education and skills to prepare students to work and perform successfully at all, levels of management. The program covers all the functional areas of business and allows the students to take additional elective courses that match their career aims and their personal goals and development, which allows them to further integrate all functional areas and gain the essential overall view of organizational performance.
KFUPM is currently undergoing a major transformation and that has led to the adapting of new degrees which are trending and supportive of the local economy to create thought leadership. The Business School decided to invest in the development of a one-year professional Master’s degree. The Master in Supply Chain Management was recently launched in August 2020. We are also launching the Master in Business Analytics and the Master in Human Resource Management in August 2021 (admissions now open). Soon to be launched are the Master programs in Economics and Accounting.
The Graduate Programs at KBS have been the cornerstone of the Business School’s success. Since its inception in 1975, the MBA program has been producing leaders which are now in top positions in both private and governmental organizations in the Kingdom. Due to the immense success of our highly talented alumni, our program became the first choice for many professionals who are working in the region and hail from all backgrounds. Our close ties with the industry has helped to shape our curriculum to be more relevant to the needs of the economy.
In 2001, we established the Executive MBA program tailored for senior executives. It soon became one of the leading EMBA programs in the MENA region. The EMBA courses are conducted by faculty with outstanding credentials and significant business and or consulting experience. The faculty members are committed to maintaining academic excellence and world-class program quality – the hallmark of KFUPM. High caliber business executives are encouraged to apply and enroll in our Executive MBA program and become part of an elite group of motivated individuals in sharing a rewarding learning experience.
Currently, we are also in the midst of developing masters programs to cater for the expanding and diversifying economic needs of the country. These programs will create thought leadership and help in policy making and high level research. We shall be launching these new masters programs very soon and look forward to admitting our first batch of students.
I welcome all professionals and executives to join the Graduate Programs at KBS.
