BBS Welcomes Fourth Class

Baghdad Business School is excited to announce the arrival of our fourth cohort which has 62 talented students, 40 females and 22 males. 

BBS received around 500 applications this year, reflecting the growing popularity of BBS as a go-to place for quality Business and English and Professional Skills education. All admitted students passed a rigorous admissions process: an application, interview, and English assessment.

Students in the fourth cohort come from a variety of backgrounds, including Nursing, Law, Political Science, Tourism, Marketing, Biology, English Literature, Medicine, History, Engineering, Business administration, and Arts. 83% of the students in the current class are either seeking employment or working in part-time jobs. Additionally, 17% of the students have their own startups or businesses, and they are looking to grow and expand their ventures. 

BBS’s previous three classes had 17, 19 and 53 graduates respectively. Most of them work with potent companies, SMEs, startups, and NGOs operating in Iraq such as Baly, Alsare3, Miswag, Switch, NBI, UNDP, GIZ, Fadshi, and many others. Also, some of the alumni have their own businesses such as Dowera, Tanwer, Mudalal, Boxparty, Nova, Aliens Burger.

The new students attended Orientation Day on October 25 and 26 to learn more about their schedule, get to know each other better, and meet the BBS team and faculty members. They started their first 4-month semester  on October 29 in Professional English and Development Skills (PEDS) After completing PEDS, students will move on to a five-month semester in Business Fundamentals before finishing the program in October 2024.  

We are looking forward to embarking on a new educational journey with our fourth cohort!
