The School's strong faculty, all graduates of reputable academic institutions around the world, achieves high quality standards for research productivity and teaching effectiveness. The School recruits top quality students and engages them in the highest level of hands-on business technology education.
We recognize that career paths change. Therefore, the best preparation for the future of work is to gain an understanding of all aspects of business, including leadership, entrepreneurship, business analytics, decision-making, negotiation, conflict resolution, consumer behavior, finance, and accounting. Having foundational knowledge along with a background in a specific major give students a competitive edge to meet the needs of an ever-changing landscape. Recently, the King Talal School of Business Technology was recognized by The Education Magazine as being among the 10-Most Recommended APAC Business Schools to Watch in 2022. This list features premier business schools that are renowned for equipping students with the quintessential skills required to thrive in the competitive marketplace.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the King Talal School of Business Technology (KTSBT). In response to a decree by HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, the Chair 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. At KTSBT, we work hard to develop academic and administrative leaders who are prominent in business schools in Jordan and the region. The School is committed to preparing students for leadership roles, fostering entrepreneurial growth, and conducting quality research that informs business practice. Undergraduate and Master's students learn transferable skills and knowledge that prepare them for a wide range of positions for today and the future.
All of our programs are technology-oriented. We offer undergraduate degree programs in Business Administration, Accounting, Business Information Technology, and e-Marketing & Social Media. In addition, we offer MS degree programs in Business Entrepreneurship, Business Analytics, e-Marketing & Social Media, Financial Technology & Accounting Analytics, and Supply Chain Management & Logistics Technology.
KTSBT maintains cooperation agreements with universities worldwide, which have led to the development of joint programs. The agreement with the Heinrich Heine University, Dusseldorf, offers postgraduate study opportunities leading to a Master's degree in European Studies. 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 cooperation agreements with University of Michigan-Dearborn, Oakland University, and University of Arizona to offer 2+2 Joint degree programs.
Finally, we are proud to announce that we earned AACSB international accreditation a few years ago. Less than 6% of the world’s schools offering business degree programs hold AACSB business accreditation. This also makes PSUT one of the 2% of the world's universities outside the USA to have obtained such an outstanding accreditation. AACSB accreditation is the product of many years of teamwork and perseverance from an exceptionally dedicated KTSBT faculty and staff.
Welcome again to our School. We wish you every success, and wish our School continued progress and prosperity.
