French Arabian School
The genesis of French Arabian Business School (FABS) was established in 2007 with an agreement between the Arabian Gulf University, The Paris Chamber of Commerce and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The school was established to “promote human resource skills and develop education, research and expertise in the various areas of management, business administration and finance, which are of particular relevance to the Gulf region.” By combining world class standards and regional specificities, the school’s strategy is to build its own expertise in various fields of management and to achieve excellence in education and best serve the needs of the GCC states. The link with distinguished international universities such as ESSEC and corporations such as AirBusiness Academy enables the FABS to draw upon the experience and reputation of these institutions in the development of innovative programs that are relevant to the needs of the region.
