Prince Mohammad Bin Salman College (MBSC) of Business & Entrepreneurship is a new private, higher education institution for both men and women. It has been established through an International partnership between Emaar The Economic City, Babson Global (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Babson College, USA), Lockheed Martin under the umbrella of the Economic Offset Program in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the MISK foundation.
MBSC features Babson College’s unique approach to entrepreneurial education which does not rely on passively listening to classroom lectures but focuses on hands-on experiential learning that is practical and pragmatic. The curriculum uses a set of signature experiential courses that will require students to apply their learning to real world problems or start new social or business ventures. This type of project based learning will be supplemented by a network of mentors and advisors. Development of individuals will continue outside class through an intentionally created set of co-curricular experiences that will reinforce and build the entrepreneurial leadership skills of students.
MBSC has a culture that reflects the best of academic traditions in all world class institutions of higher learning whose hallmarks include respect for diverse viewpoints, professionalism, integrity, and a constant commitment to excellence both in and out of the classroom.
