Master of Business Administration
We are pleased to announce that the American University of Afghanistan is now accepting applications for the most prestigious business degree in Afghanistan, the AUAF Master of Business Administration, with a world-class curriculum and rigorous classes taught by internationally qualified faculty with expertise in global business practices.
The AUAF Master of Business Administration program comprises 15 credit courses that provide a comprehensive view of general business management. Classes are admitted on a cohort basis. Each cohort progresses through an established sequence of courses that first develop the concepts, tools, and techniques used in best practices organizations. Then these are brought together to develop analytical skills.
Analytical skills are honed using complex business cases. Cases are first-hand accounts of actual situations that provide participants with an opportunity to learn by making decisions that confront managers. Cases help participants realize that decision-making is not a precise science and those outcomes are sometimes unpredictable. Cases provide a deep learning experience that goes beyond the mastery of skills and knowledge.
The MBA program will begin in the fall 2013 semester. All courses are scheduled for evening hours beginning 17:00.
Candidates for the AUAF Masters of Business Administration must complete the following steps for admission.
- Complete and submit an MBA application for admission
- Pay a non-refundable application fee of 2,250 Afghanis
- Provide an official transcript verifying that the applicant holds a bachelor-level degree from a recognized institution of higher learning
