About College

Introduction

​​PSU established the College of Business Administration (CBA) in order to play an important role in developing human capital for the Kingdom’s fast‐growing business and service sectors. This enterprise started in 1999 with the development of a well‐structured undergraduate program in business. Since then, graduates of the business undergraduate program have made their marks in the Saudi Arabian and regional business sectors; and today PSU is looked to as the supplier of effective bilingual business graduates. To build on the success achieved in the undergraduate programs, the CBA launched its Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in 2007. It is designed to train men and women for leadership positions in the private and public business sectors. The college follows state-of-the discipline curricula for all its programs. The curriculum development process followed by the college takes into account the needs of the local business community, the interdisciplinary nature of business studies, and the ever-changing developments in each subject area. The process involves collection and review of curriculum related data from faculty, feedback from stakeholders including the local business community, and other benchmarking information. For example, in preparing the undergraduate curriculum, the contents and structures of the business programs of three universities in Saudi Arabia and twenty U.S. business schools were reviewed. The reviewed US schools include the top ten undergraduate business programs in the U.S. as reported by “US News & World Report” and ten other second-tier undergraduate business programs.​
