Undergraduate Program

University College of Bahrain (UCB) offers a rigorous program in Business Administration. The Business Administration program at UCB focuses on the needs of the market in the Kingdom of Bahrain and Gulf region and prepares the students for the evolving world of business. The program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum focusing on business administration. The curriculum is organized in such a way that it provides students with an appropriate academic progression from semester to semester and year to year.


The program initially focuses on introductory courses and then moves to more specialized courses in particular areas of business administration. The program provides sufficient time, content coverage, and allows students and faculty to interact in order to assure that the learning goals of the programs are accomplished. The program also has a work component which is referred as internship where the students are exposed to work environment at the leading companies and institutions in the GCC.


In October 2018, UCB has signed an affiliation agreement with the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI) that allows Islamic Finance students to be exempted from taking two modules out of the four required modules of the Certified Islamic Professional Accountant (CIPA). This agreement makes UCB the first University in the world to have this affiliation.

"UCB provided me with the opportunity to experience studying abroad, without having to leave my homeland. I gained more self confidence, and learned the true meaning of being a team-player. UCB has been the perfect stepping stone for me to go on and do what I want to do in the future.”
