Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it. If you aren't sure which way to do something, do it both ways and see which works better. John carmack This quote really inspired me through my college days, and continues to do so. It opened my mind and challenged my ability to achieve goals, and so expanded my knowledge base and gave me more confidence. In college, i learned that i could begin projects and achieve higher standards which opened doors for me to walk into a highly professional career. What i would really like to say to all ubt instructors is: thank you so much for believing in me, and for spicing up my life. I am happy that you were able to share such a milestone with me by being there as my instructors, or being my colleagues and enriching me with your generosity. I thank you sincerely for being such a vital part of my life.


Barad Nasseef


When I first set out on my university journey, I was an entirely different person from what I have become today. Before joining UBT, I was a self-contained individual who would shrink into herself amongst strangers and would feel intimidated in the spotlight, but now I am a different person. I graduated from UBT as a person who feels quite comfortable being in the spotlight. This whole experience played an integral role in the development and preparation of my skills and abilities and allowed the advancement of both my management and leadership skills and helped develop both my soft and hard skills, making me a more attractive candidate in a competitive labor market. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank UBT and most importantly all my dear instructors for assisting me in laying such a strong foundation towards a more professional career”

I joined CBA during its very early days when the girls section was just a single floor in an office building next to the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Regardless of its size at that time and its infancy, the curriculum, books used, and caliber of its academic staff were impressive. I will always be grateful to have been taught by instructors who combined academic excellence with professional expertise in the industry bringing balanced and real life insights to the courses. Due to the quality of teaching which I received in CBA, my basics were good enough to pursue a master’s in accounting and finance in the UK and graduate with distinction. In addition to having a successful professional career, alhamdulilah. I am proud to be a graduate of an institution that progressed over record time; evolving from IBA to CBA to UBT. I wish UBT continued prosperity for generations to come.

My time at the College of Business Administration has been pleasant and fruitful. I see how valuable I am to the market as a UBT graduate, it makes me feel proud. Employers know the quality of education we receive, and feel confident to hire us eventually.


Yomna Mohammed


My journey in CBA was full of adventure, it doesn’t matter if it was positive or negative, what matters if I learned from my them or not and I did actually learned a lot of things. CBA made me look at the organizations from various angles, not only through the marketing eye, through HR, FIN, ACCUT, etc… eyes. Each major complete one another and that’s how any business survive, each department relies on the other department such as HR and MKT. I’ve always wanted to major in Marketing because it depends on the person’s creativity and the way the person want to their customer to be satisfied when they see what they want. Marketers always want to see the smile on their loyal/regular customer because this is the mark that tells them that they had accomplished their mission. However, CBA is the best college for someone who want to major in fields related to business. I entered CBA with basic knowledge that I studied in school and now I am graduating with advanced knowledge that is built on my basic knowledge. Thank you UBT/CBA for providing me the opportunity to explore my self and excell in the field that I majored in. Thank you !

Saja Sami Khumaiyes


I joined CBA on their first semester in Sari building. It was an overwhelming experience for me since I never changed schools throughout my early years of studying. However, CBA was a warm and welcoming place that helped me to adapt quickly with the change. I choose MIS as major, and we were very few in number compared to other majors, and I have to admit that it was very challenging, yet gave us the opportunity to maximize our learning. Due to the quality of teaching which I received in CBA, I was offered a full time job during my coop training period, and held a very good position for a fresh graduate, which led to quick and successful promotions, and for that I will always be grateful. I am proud to be a graduate of CBA that has a reputation as the leading business school in Saudi.


Ezwah Abdullah Alabdali


Attending many workshops and seminars, which took place in ubt, has helped me a lot in better understanding the work market/environment. Engaging in many extracurricular activities has definitely improved my teamwork and communication competencies. I have always loved exams and assignments that would challenge my ability of thinking and require my opinion; my job is a daily challenging assignment. Curriculum is a solid base, but continuous reading and keeping up with market trends and best practices will help connecting the dots. My sincere appreciation goes out to the faculty members of HR, who played a huge role in developing the competencies I need in my job.
