NIBS welcomes new member from Bahrain


Bahrain’s Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University College of Business (TAG-UCB) is the newest member of the Network of International Business Schools

Established in 2012, and accredited by the country’s Higher Education Council, the school is focused on developing business leaders who can compete and succeed in the knowledge-based global economy.  It is the country’s only post-secondary institution focused specifically on business administration.

TAG-UCB is supported by the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org), the largest professional services firm in the Arab world.  According to founder and chairman, Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, TAG-Org is committed to making TAG-UCB a leading undergraduate university college in the Arab region.

The school operates a campus in Bahrain’s capital city, Manama, and offers a Bachelor Degree of Business Administration, with concentrations in International Accounting, Logistics, Management, Human Resource Management, Marketing, E-Business and Entrepreneurship, and Banking and Finance.

With a student enrolment of 117, and a faculty composed of 10 full-time and seven part-time professors, TAG-UCB is relatively small by international standards.  However, the school has ambitious plans, with plans to double student enrollment in the near term.

“We look forward to interacting with colleges of business from other countries,” explains Prof. Haitham Alshibly, Dean of the school.  “We joined NIBS for the many opportunities it creates to communicate across cultures, work collaboratively, and cultivate better understanding.”

TAG-UCB has also announced plans to seek NIBS accreditation, and is looking to establish partnerships with other NIBS member institutions for both student and faculty exchange.

    Our commitment to creating great leaders isn’t complete without great partners. We believe our collaboration would help us to develop and work towards a collaborative environment. This should help us in developing not just new or interesting techniques in teaching but also curriculum that matches the current global business scenario.

    As the adage goes…. ‘being involved is being aware’ We are definitely looking forward to broadening our horizons with opportunities, ideas and meeting like- minded people coming from all walks of life…we are looking forward to working in collaboration with plenty of interaction between our students and students of the member schools. It’s a pleasure to be a member of NIBS.
