Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business

Introduction

Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business (TAG-SB) is the first school of its kind in the Arab world that represents a partnership between the private and public sectors. It was founded to provide educational opportunities at the highest international standards. Our commitment to our students, to academic excellence and to the development of the region is reflected in the School’s mission:

We educate the future business leaders who will drive the economic future of the Arab region by:

  1. Implementing a disciplined combination of our core values and educational strategies.
  2. Bringing together outstanding academicians and gifted students.

We are committed to excellence, high ethical and moral values, academic and applied business research, and continuous improvement to benefit from advancements in international educational standards and digital technology. We strive to remain a premier business school regionally and worldwide.

TAG-SB was inaugurated in 2006 as one of the faculties of the German-Jordanian University (GJU), a public university formed in 2004 through cooperation of the German and Jordanian governments. This unique partnership brings the business expertise of the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) to the academic world of GJU.

Excellence is not easily achieved. TAG-SB is fortunate to have the financial support and resources of TAG-Org, the largest firm of professional services in the Arab world with over 85 offices and 150 representative offices worldwide. TAG-Org, in the words of its Chairman Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, is committed to making TAG-SB “the Harvard of the Arab world.”

The program and courses at TAG-SB have been developed by some of the most respected and renowned figures in academia with the global economy in mind to meet the highest international standards. Our MBA program has been designed to bolster the advancement of knowledge with practical real-world applications and through a case-study approach to education. This places TAG-SB in a league of its own. The MBA program is accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA). The accreditation procedure has verified and confirmed that the program has all the quality elements specified in the European MBA Guidelines. The MBA program at TAG-SB is the first in the Arab world to achieve this prestigious accreditation despite being introduced only a couple of years ago.

TAG-SB’s aim is to prepare students for leadership positions in certain specialized fields. We are dedicated to continuously developing new programs that help our graduates meet the demands of the ever-changing global economy.
