TAGSB provides an advanced academic curriculum that matches the one offered by elite business administration colleges in the world such as Harvard University and Canisius College and others, a statement said.
'Our commitment to support youth particularly students is our mission to build a knowledge-based society which can encounter future challenges that is why we are focusing on supporting this initiative,” said Ihab Hinnawi, CEO of Umniah.
Prof Hisham Gharaibeh, dean of TAGSB, said:'Investment in education, spread of knowledge and capacity building is the right way to develop the society through enriching it with qualified human resources which are the pillar of development. I would like also to thank Umniah for their support for TAG-Knowledge activities and its role in supporting local community.'
The Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) granted the TAGSB a five-year accreditation to its MBA programme with concentrations in marketing, accounting, management, banking and finance, quality management and human resources management.
