The MBA program involves schooling in business basics, obtaining comprehensive knowledge of the profession's disciplines, and specializing in one of its major fields. The program begins with a sequence of foundation courses, followed by a range of intermediate discipline-specific courses, and concludes with coursework in a specialized major field (e.g. Finance, Marketing). Textbook and lecture learning is deepened and enriched by simulation of practical applications of such knowledge. Students with little or no work experience undertake internship programs and acquire real-world business experience and establish rapport with the Riyadh business community with prospects of future employment.

The MBA professional graduate program is thus structured to cultivate analytical skills and infuse managerial decision‐making expertise. Emphasis is on developing the ability to evaluate business and organizational situations with competency, insight, and creativity. The CBA Masters degree program employs an active learning process, one that allows aspiring young business executives to work in specialized areas and sectors armed with the necessary tools of conceptual, interpersonal and problem‐solving skills. In brief, PSU MBA graduates are ready and able to make informed and creative judgments vis‐à‐vis business policy and operations in the real world outside the classroom.
