Also, the revamped modules include advanced and trending topics such as Behavioral Finance, AI in Financial Decision-making, FinTech, Real Estate Finance, and more, with an option to complete the final modules in Chicago or Bahrain.

The BIBF’s Director, Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh stated that the revamped programs are introduced to help students gain knowledge, upgrade their skills, and understand the rapidly changing technologies to be more versatile in their career progression.

He also added: “The BIBF has partnered with DePaul University to offer the prestigious MBA program since 2002 and has been successfully running in Bahrain for 19 years, with more than 800 distinguished alumni, many of whom now hold senior executive positions across a wide range of public, governmental and corporate organizations in the Kingdom.”

DePaul brings its global experience to the Gulf Region as it is the first resident program for Bahrain and the Gulf Region, and the first MBA program solely taught by U.S. faculty in the Middle East.
