Here’s what our Alumni have to say.

Fahad Al Furaih,
2015 MBA Graduate
VP. Human Resources, Schneider Electric

"In 2015 I completed my MBA studies in Bahrain with MDCI. Without the MBA I would never have gotten to where I am today – the programme enabled me to hone my general management skills and challenged me to become a better leader. Thank you to MDCI’s team for your professionalism and endless support."

Hassan Al Mannai,
2017 MBA Graduate
Founder, Socialize Media

"I graduated in 2017 with an MBA that I studied in Bahrain with MDCI. I had been in my job in the banking sector for about seven years and was thinking about how I could train to gain a promotion. I opted for the MDCI MBA because it fitted around my work and family commitments. I found that following my completion of the MBA I was more confident, efficient, and better able to manage my time. I was able to implement what I had learnt immediately and benefit from the course in many ways. I have now founded my own company Socialize Media, a Qatar-based social media marketing and digital advertising agency."

Susan Furness
Advisory Board

"Hull University, the MDCI faculty, and my cohort proved such a powerful mix. I left every module equipped with new models that I swiftly integrated into client solutions, as well as my own business. An awesome experience."

Nidal Idriss,
2018 MBA Graduate
Senior Division Manager, Chalhoub Group

"My experience with the MBA was remarkable. From the first topic to the last, everything I learnt was essential and of benefit to my knowledge and career. Because the classes were scheduled for every six weeks, I was able to manage my job and studies. The graduation ceremony was perfectly organised and a magnificent experience."
