Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance partners with England's University of Salford
The relationship will lead to the joint development of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, which will build on Salford's expertise in areas such as Business Administration, Marketing, Tourism and Islamic Banking and Finance.
A special event was held at the BIBF to celebrate the new partnership in the presence of Deputy Ambassador to Bahrain Mockbul Ali, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Salford Helen Marshall and BIBF Director Solveig Nicklos.
BIBF is the Bahrain’s leading provider of financial and business related education, providing a full portfolio of entry-level courses as well as qualifications aimed at senior leaders in the banking industry across the Middle East.
In addition to its expertise in business-related courses, Salford also has an internationally renowned reputation in areas such as built environment, energy, healthcare, media and digital, and science and technology.
This latest partnership demonstrates the university's ongoing commitment to championing industry-led, practice-based teaching and learning across the Middle East.
"I am delighted to have strengthened our relationship with such a powerful regional partner that shares our belief in practical based learning underpinned with regional and international academic expertise," Marshall said.
