The university recognizes its obligation to deliver a high quality program that prepares students for profoundly changing business, cultural and geopolitical environments so that they may have the best chances for personal and professional success as future business leaders.

The university adopts the appropriate academic strategies and provides resources to ensure the success of 3Year students. The new paradigm under which the program operates recognizes the importance of students, faculty members and university administrators working jointly to accomplish the academic mission. This program is based on students mastering the following competencies: Communication: Students will demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively through written, oral, and other forms of communication. Information Technology: Students will master information technology principles and contemporary information technology applications and will be able to apply information technology to the greatest advantage in the many aspects of an organization’s operations. Problem Solving: Students will develop the skills to identify problems quickly, analyze them reasonably, and find solutions creatively. Teamwork: Students will develop a broad range of interpersonal skills in order to function effectively as a participant in team and group situations. Analytical Skills: Students will appropriately use and apply quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis, use data, applied mathematical and statistical techniques, and decision sciences whenever possible to attain organizational objectives.
