King Talal School of Business Technology

Message from the Dean

Dear students and visitors,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the King Talal School of Business Technology (KTSBT). I would like to take this opportunity to assure you that the School is constantly striving to keep a close connection with our students so that they can benefit from our help in developing their abilities and take advantage of every opportunity to achieve success.

Dear students,

I whole-heartedly encourage you to take advantage of everything that the School offers. We are proud of the professional efforts of our academic and administrative staff in teaching, research, and community service. We are also proud of you, our distinguished students, for your determination in making continuous academic progress.

In response to a decree by HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, KTSBT was established in 2006 to offer non-traditional, specialized programs that focus on the requirements of modern technology in all fields. KTSBT’s programs are in line with international, academic, industrial and economic criteria, which make them comparable to those of the most reputable business schools in the world. Thus, KTSBT works hard to develop academic and administrative leaders who are prominent in business schools in Jordan and the region. The School seeks to achieve its mission by graduating highly-qualified students in the field of business technology who are capable of competing, acquiring skills and meeting the requirements of the job market.

KTSBT offers BA programs in:

Management Information Systems (MIS), the first department founded in the School (2006)

Business Administration (BA) (since 2009)

Accounting (since 2010)

E-Marketing and Social Media (EMSM) (since 2012)

KTSBT also offers a Master’s Degree in Business Entrepreneurship (MBE), the first such program to be established in Jordan and the region, in cooperation with the European Union through the Tempus Program.

KTSBT has forged a number of cooperation agreements with universities worldwide such as its shared program with the University of Lancaster, UK, offering a Master’s degree in International Business Administration since 2009. Similarly, KTSBT cooperates with Hasselt University, Belgium in offering Master’s programs in both Management Information Systems and International Marketing Strategies. In addition, it has a cooperation agreement with Michigan State University, as well as dozens of other universities.

KTSBT has become the first business school in Jordan which meets the International Accreditation Requirements for the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). It obtained the initial approval for the international accreditation after getting the acceptance letter for the self-assessment report in December, 2015. The School is working hard to meet the accreditation requirements over the next few years.

Welcome again to our School. We wish you every success, and wish our School continued progress and prosperity.

Dr. AbdelRaheem Abu Basal

Dean of King Talal School of Business Technology
