Classroom Experience

Classroom Experience

When learning something new, a supportive mentor or an inspirational teacher is invaluable. However, in any organizational or educational setting, an exceptional teacher and mentor is only one part of the overall learning experience. Your own personal aptitudes, abilities, experiences, leadership qualities and people management skills, as well as your current strengths and limitations as a manager, are also important.

Knowing what you want to achieve and how you will achieve it is paramount to success. The purpose of the Alfaisal MBA program is to support your side of the learning equation theoretically, practically, and personally. To help achieve your goals and develop your skills, all MBA courses involve individual and collaborative work, interactive classroom discussions on contemporary business issues, and a variety of assignments, cases, projects, tests, and examinations to help you build and consolidate your learning experience. Our primary focus is to provide you with an optimal learning experience and with opportunities to grow as a manager and leader in your organization and community.

International Study Trips

International Study Trips

In Alfaisal MBA programs, we offer International Study Trips for each cohort. Each year participating students travel to an international destination to learn first-hand from executives and managers, as well as internationally renowned faculty. These trips are designed to give our students additional exposure to international business practices, particularly as they relate to emerging markets. International study trip course includes a one-week trip where students follow lectures at a top Business School and/or visit local companies and cultural events. They gain valuable insights about the challenges, distinctive business practices, management principles and success factors that they will encounter in a global business setting. The trips expose students to the global business environment, so that they can understand how fast-growing economies in developing countries provide opportunities for businesses. While there are a number of academic objectives for the international study trips, they are also a lot of fun and provide touristic opportunities for the cohort. Such trips enables students to learn from business executives and ask candid questions about growth, strategy, operations, and cultural differences. The company visits enable students to apply what they have learned in their MBA program directly to the companies that are visited.
