MBA Degree Bahrain

MBA Degree Program offered in Bahrain for the First Time


The Swiss School of Management, in collaboration with American Global Consulting, is now offering its prestigious MBA Program in Bahrain for the first time. Students who finish the requirements of the one-year program receive an internationally accredited MBA Degree specifically designed to equip students with the tools and analytical framework required for a successful career. The interactive community of SSM’s faculty members and Bahrain’s students will work together to achieve quality education relevant to today’s knowledge-based economy.

Just thirty minutes away from the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and in close proximity to a number of other Gulf States, Bahrain is centrally located giving access to students and professionals from all over the region to attend classes convened only one day per month.

This MBA Degree Program is primarily focused on the needs of career driven professionals addressing the rather substantial gaps of other MBA programs currently being offered in Bahrain. The Swiss School of Management awards its MBA Degree in collaboration with the highly regarded INSEEC Business School in Paris, France whose MBA Degree is ranked among the best business and management programs around the world and accredited by the Association of MBAs.

Further, the SSM MBA Degree is fully accredited by International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) and Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). It is also accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs in the United States. The Swiss School of Management is further certified by EduQua and the Swiss Quality Certification label (accredited by the Swiss Federal Government) for Institutions of higher and continuous education.

The SSM MBA Degree Program is structured to cater to the needs of working professionals and/or those who are simply looking to expand their knowledge/skill base. Students are required to meet once per month with visiting lecturers from Swiss School of Management. For the rest of the time, students can log on to the student online system to access their course materials, library, and communicate directly with their lecturers or fellow students.

Throughout the MBA program, students will study leadership, business, entrepreneurship and management philosophies that can be applied to any management role across varied industries. It also gives students a hands-on, applicable experience leading groups and classroom discussions. Classes include lectures, corporate visits, visiting speakers, self-assessment exercises and resume/internship counseling. A priority is to start growing students’ networks from the moment they arrive for their very first class.
