At present, in Higher education, there is at a crucial moment worldwide where titles have lost value with respect to experience.
Recently I founded a long-term start-up – constituted on August 22 – with which it is intended that a totally practical training with which develop theories in different areas of the business world with prominent professionals from each area in order to innovate and disrupt in the field of higher education.
This project is called Al-Khalifa Business SchoolLinks to an external site. and its intention is to create and develop innovation in business learning in different business areas through online platforms with courses, professional certifications, and specializations.
During the last years there are multiple cases of young people who attend a job interview with thousands of dollars qualifications that are rejected for being a more inexperienced degree. Therefore, this project aims to make use of professionals who stand out in their own fields and who can offer a different approach to the future leaders of tomorrow. In this way, both apprentices and intermediate positions can prosper thanks to having been trained – or even collaborated through the internship projects – with prominent personalities in their field.
It is clearly illustrative that when we attended college we always learned more with a practical lesson from a teacher who works in practice than with the study of 50 books. That is why we do not require degrees or studies in our teaching staff, only the experience that has led them to be leaders in their sectors.
For example, among the advisory committee we have personalities such as Afaf Konja (spokesperson for the 68th General Assembly of the United Nations), Sir Anthony Ritossa (President of the Office of the Ritossa Family), H.E. Sir Brian Patrick Luining (Secretary of the Military Order Constantine of St. George, Senior Advisor to the Office of His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Abdullah Al Qasimi and Private Partner of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), Hari Eppanapally ( Vice President of the Global InfoTech Division of the Bank of New York Mellon) H.E. Igor Olegovich Eleferenko (Counselor of State of Russia) and Mohamed Al Ali (CEO and Advisor of Sheikh Ahmad Bin Obaid Al Maktoum International Investment Enterprises); as well as the honorary opinion of His Majesty Mahmoud Salah Al Din Assaf, H.E. Luis Suárez Hernández (member of the advisory board of His Royal Highness Pedro José de Mendoça Bragança and Bourbon of Portugal, Duke de Loulée and Diplomatic Ambassador NOHE / ONU) and His Majesty Togbe Osei III (traditional leader of Godenu for the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana), among others.
Al-Khalifa Business School develops several programs related to business in fields of interest for the 21st century, taught by renowned professors who are esteemed professionals in their field. The programs include Law, Agri-Business, Media Business, Music Business, Economic Business and Health Business program.
