AMA Education System is to open the AMA International University of Bahrain. It will be the fifth overseas unit of the Malaysian IT training company.

The new university, which opens in the summer, will house 700 students in a four-story building in Manama. Later the university will build its own campus to accommodate 1000 students.

Dr Amable ‘King’ Aguiluz V, president of AMA Education System, told the Gulf News that “we share the vision of Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa to make Bahrain a centre of world-class education in the Gulf.”

He added that the university would aim to keep students’ fees as low as possible by working with global partners. “We’re competitive because we don’t try to reinvent the wheel. We have incorporated the technology of our industry partners like Microsoft, Cisco, Abaya Communication (AT&T), and the National Computing Centre of the UK (NCC-UK), among others institutions, into our curriculum,” he explained.

“Upon graduation, our students will have the AIUB diploma and the certification from these partners, which will make them very competitive in the regional or even international job market,” he added.
