A Message from the Dean
We at the College of Business Administration (CBA), Kuwait University, aim to produce leaders; men and women of knowledge, character, and vision, who can see the big picture and understand the significance of the details. Our graduates are nurtured by CBA’s diverse, experienced and dedicated faculty, thriving to accomplish academic excellence in teaching, research and community service. The Kuwaiti business community continues to grow and strengthen, and through CBA’s Center of Excellence in Management, it continues to expand its role as a vital business community resource Center. The investment of time, talent, experience, and energy yield impressive dividends, and our faculty, students, alumni, and business partners are the direct beneficiaries. CBA will continue to look beyond the boundaries of the classroom to explore the frontiers of a business education that blend real-life experiences with textbook theory. CBA is justifiably proud of its past but even more excited about its future because for CBA, the opportunities are limitless.
