All companies manage their businesses. The difference between good companies and not-so-good ones are the way they manage their business, their resources and their efforts. Here at the Department of Management Sciences we focus on improving this aspect of good management in our students, so they become sought-after employees or influential entrepreneurs.
Our department is aware of the changes taking place in global marketplace and our study plans and program offerings tend to reflect these changes. This helps in transferring up-to-date knowledge and industry-demanded skills to our students. Being proactive has helped us in providing better quality programs that keep us well ahead of many institutions in Higher Education.
Currently most of our BS Business programs, such as HR, Marketing, MIS, and Accounting, are accredited by the international Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Moreover, our BS in HR is aligned with recommended requirements for HR degree programs by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The Management Science Department offers also unique BS in Supply Chain Management program in the Saudi Arabia, which is accredited by Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
Management Science Department is currently collaborating with National and International professional institutions to develop programs that meet the Saudi labor market demands and professional standards and to help the nation achieve its Saudi Vision 2030. For example, Royal Commission in Yanbu (RCY) and the Saudi Organization for Certified Public Accountants (SOCPA) recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) covering several areas of academic and professional cooperation including, but not limited to cooperation in conducting professional training programs that will empower our graduates to apply for SOCPA fellowship examination - the Saudi Certificate of Public Accountant (CPA).
If you have the potential and want to pursue education in any of the fields listed above, please feel free to join our dynamic and knowledge-rich environment and be a part of Management Science Department.
