Welcoming Note

Welcome to the College of Business and Economics at the American University of Kuwait (AUK). It is here where education comes to life and a world is moved by another degree. Should you be seeking to engage in scholarly activities with a diverse and vibrant community dedicated to serving wisely in support of all forms of dignity, I invite you to learn more about AUK, the College of Business and Economics, their Departments, Programs and Faculty.

The College of Business and Economics offers its undergraduate students a rigorous and forward-looking business education couched in the tradition of liberal arts that educates the whole person (socially, emotionally, intellectually, morally, ethically, and physically). In its pursuit of truth, the College of Business and Economics engages students in thinking critically and communicating effectively with widely different personalities. Moreover, efficient, effective, and professional business conduct necessitates our graduates to embrace governance, and sustainability mandates through an education that integrates leadership qualities for the common good.

The hallmark feature of the College of Business and Education is its intellectual diversity and breadth of teaching and learning that improves the quality of decision-making. Our undergraduate students encounter a range of courses in the Bachelor of Business Administration Degree Program with majors in the following disciplines: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing. Since AUK's mission is to be a leading liberal arts institution, the College of Business and Economics creates opportunities inside and outside the classroom to better prepare students for responsible citizenship by fostering creativity, flexibility, curiosity and innovation. We are extremely proud of our faculty and staff who breathe life and excitement into our courses and pursue scholarly research in a myriad of areas, and at the same time commit to helping students learn how to meet the challenges of our times locally and globally. Our graduates continue to hold their alma mater in proud stead.

On behalf of AUK and the College of Business and Economics, I am pleased to welcome you and look forward to a lasting relationship filled with the best of scholarship.
