A Message From The Dean
Dear Visitor:

Since the first group of business students began their studies in 2006, the College of Business Administration at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University has experienced a remarkable growth; today it is a premier business school in the Eastern Province and the largest of the PMU Colleges, offering five undergraduate majors and two graduate programs to prepare its students for long-lasting successful professional careers in a variety of industries.

Along with its growth, COBA and its outstanding faculty have gained an excellent academic reputation not only in the region, but also internationally, as most recently evidenced by the establishment of a cooperative relationship with one the most distinguished universities in the world, the Technical University of Munich, Germany.

Considering the impressive accomplishments over the past 10 years, one could be tempted to become idle and simply bask in the sunlight of educational success. However, the business and labor environments in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have changed over the past two years, and it can be expected that even greater challenges lie ahead. These new developments require educational approaches and solutions that benefit our students, PMU, and our external stakeholders, and that meet the knowledge and skills demands identified in the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 master plan.

COBA is committed to contributing its part to the successful realization of Vision 2030 and to the bright future of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its citizens. We believe that the Kingdom’s goals are worthy to pursue, and we are committed to exerting our strongest efforts to ensure their accomplishment. Over the past decade, PMU and COBA have proven to be outstanding forces in higher education; still, we believe that we have the potential to achieve more during our second decade than could have been imagined when the first students entered PMU ten years ago.

I invite you to join us in our pursuits.

Kind regards,

Wolfgang Hinck, Ph.D.
College of Business Administration
