Student Exchange Program
About Us
In order to enhance the academic, cultural, and social career of students in Kuwait and abroad, College of Business Administration (CBA) has a well-established Student Exchange Program (SEP) in March 31st, 2008 upon the approval of the Minister of Higher Education after it was approved as a concept in December 16th, 2007 by the Higher Board of Kuwait University. CBA had earned its’ initial academic accreditation in 2005 by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and was renewed in 2010.
SEP mission is to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world. Throughout this, SEP services to students’ education abroad are more important than ever. It can help make the world a better place for all and share a collective sense of fulfillment in our contributions to society.
SEP is CBA’s key component of the international profile of member business schools. Members cooperate as equal partners in a spirit of trust and mutual support to offer high-quality programs and further the internationalization of their campuses, collectively achieving goals beyond their individual reach. While SEP reciprocal exchange and study abroad programs enable CBA students to experience intellectual and personal growth through immersion in another culture, CBA also has enough exchange spaces for every abroad qualified student to go on exchange at its’ campus.
SEP is a network of CBA’s students with global business schools. It provides affordable international educational experiences for a diverse student population through enabling the student to study internationally for a semester or a full- academic year. From this point, SEP is responsible for the coordination of all activities related to establishing and maintaining undergraduate and graduate exchange agreements with overseas business schools. It provides support and advice to both incoming and outgoing students on all aspects of their exchange experience.
