(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) A Franklin University team that included its president Prof David Decker and Dr Godfrey Mendes, vice president, global programmes, recently called on Prof Ahmed al Naamany, dean, and the management team of Modern College of Business and Science (MCBS).
After the successful launch of the MBA programme with specialisations in finance and human resources, it was announced that MCBS-Franklin University MBA programme has recently enrolled several new cohorts that include candidates from key private and public sectors. The success stories of the first batch of graduated students and the success of the currently enrolled students has impacted the market and catapulted the program, leading to prospective students seeking to enrol in the programme.
An MBA degree is known to be useful in virtually every field of work and is equally important for people who wish to start their own businesses. Most graduates with an MBA are successful in getting promotion or better career opportunities. As a first step, both institutions are planning to design an approach to provide a better MBA curriculum, one which is engaging, interactive, and relevant to the specific job tasks and responsibilities of each intended academic programme.
The effort is to get the students to be job ready, after they complete their academic programme. Also, this meeting is intended to discuss learning support devices, including methodology, demonstrations, examples, tools, business stories, and reference materials, that help the students to work through each scenario.
Franklin University and MCBS agreed to cooperate in knowledge sharing in terms of e-learning initiatives and research projects, which will contribute to the field of business, learning pedagogy and information technology. This will offer new opportunities and increase MCBS' research capacity enabling integrating new know how to the teaching of both graduate and undergraduate programmes.
