Current Academic Partners

BBS has a letter of intent to form an advisory partnership with American University of Sharjah (AUS), one of the leading American-style institutions of higher education in the region, including the top ranked Business school in 2020, to develop governance and curriculum, and establish the MBA program.

During its pilot class, Arizona State University (ASU) provided BBS students access to the school’s online ESL program, Learn English Now (LEN), and BBS ESL instructors have access to advising and mentoring from ASU’s staff and faculty. BBS will seek to extend and grow the partnership with ASU in future years.

BBS is a nonprofit member of the AACSB Business Education Alliance. AACSB, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, is a global nonprofit association that connects educators, students, and businesses to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great private sector leaders. Membership in the AACSB will allow BBS to expand its network and develop key relationships with business schools around the world to develop a top-notch program for Iraq.
