The School of Business Administration


Message from the Dean

I am happy that you are considering coming to the business school at Al Akhawayn University.

The School of Business Administration (SBA) is organized around the North American style of education where students explore many subjects, have choices about what they want to study, and learn to think for themselves. Whether a graduate starts a small business, works for a multinational company, or continues on to earn a higher degree, SBA students build excellence within themselves to meet continuously emerging opportunities.

Doing well in business today requires more than just tools from the past. That’s why AUI’s business program draws you into the larger world of discovery both inside and outside of the classroom.

You will work with your faculty, peers and the larger AUI community to explore new ideas, learn new skills, and practice analytical discovery. You will be encouraged to do experimental projects and learn from your own experience. We want you to make full use of your own creativity and intelligence. And you’ll do all of that in three languages!

You will be joining an international community. I am an example.

 I am an American and among the 40% of AUI’s international faculty. Together as a campus community, we all – faculty, staff and students – join together to blend tradition and experiences from around the world. We are passionate about learning together.

We are a distinctive choice for people genuinely interested in learning. And that’s worth much more than just getting a first job!

At AUI, students do much more than just train for a job. Here, people learn how to learn. As the world keeps changing or as your interests evolve, you are still equipped for a lifetime.  At AUI, everyday, we build the best environment to make excellence your mindset.

But don’t take my word for it. Jump into our world. Check out our FaceBook page.

See what everyone else is saying. And join the conversation itself. Just by doing that, you are taking a step towards learning, a critical part of excellence within you.  

We will be happy to welcome you.
