Oman's MCBS joins SAP Dual Study Programme
Two year programme combines theory and technical skills
Oman's Modern College of Business and Science (MCBS) has become the first higher education institute in the Middle East to join SAP's Dual Study Education Programme.
The programme focuses on combining and alternating SAP-specific skills and theory. The two year programme is hosted at universities and interwoven with a student's standard curriculum.
The programme is part of SAP's initiatives to increase local skills. Students gain SAP-specific certifications and project management skills, and are also able to gain internships with SAP and its partners, both locally and globally.
MCBS is a private college licensed by the Ministry of Higher Education, and offers Bachelor degrees in Business Administration, Economics, Information System, Accounting, and Computer Science. The college also offers Master's degree in business administration.
"MCBS has a long and distinguished history of producing graduates that have gone on to lead and innovate in both Oman and beyond," said Prof. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Naamany, Dean, MCBS.
"SAP's Dual Education Programme brings a new dimension to our curriculum. This is a collaboration truly focused on delivering essential skills and encouraging new ways of thinking about the importance and power of technology at the workplace."
Marita Mitschein, SAP Training & Development Institute Managing Director and Growth Plan Lead for SAP Middle East & North Africa added: "We are delighted to welcome MCBS to the Dual Education Programme, which is specifically structured to address some of today's most pressing business needs.
"The combination of MCBS's academic offerings and SAP's business know-how will open up new career opportunities for graduates and give them early exposure to potential employers," she added.
