American University of Sharjah, School of Business and Management

The School of Business Administration (SBA) - the leading business school in the Arab region (US News, 2016) - is well known for the exceptional quality of its Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program, which features six majors and eight minors. The school also offer two applied business education programs at the graduate level: a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Accounting as well as a series of executive education seminars and workshops.

All programs are delivered by diverse faculty, most of which have earned PhDs from esteemed US academic institutions. Faculty accomplishments have been recognized internationally, with many members being recipients of international awards and recommendations for their research and textbook publications.

It is not just the high quality academic degree programs that sets SBA apart from its competition. At SBA, interaction with the business community is valued vital for our success. Corporate leaders, Nobel Laureates, distinguished academics and alumni are invited as guest speakers to inform and encourage students. An Interactive Trading Floor -- a technologically advanced 27-seat learning environment designed to be the exact duplicate of a trading floor found in typical Wall Street or global investment firms, including the same live data feeds, industry software and analytical tools – is available for students to apply theory to practice and gain invaluable understanding of the intricacies of global financial markets.

In addition, the school has career placement and internship services that are designed to match student ability and aspiration with employer needs and preferences.
