Having spent fifteen years studying and working with US Universities and ten years teaching at HEC Paris and the University of Tunis, Pr. Mahmoud Triki had the idea of founding a private university organizing its programs in English according to the norms of the top-ranked North American universities. His strategy consisted of inviting corporations, business leaders, scholars, and professionals to be founding members of the projected university.
I belong to the first cohort of MedTech. I am extremely grateful for giving me unique opportunity to build a diversified and powerful network and gain technical engineering skills. I believe that by integrating courses with MSB, I also developed entrepreneurial and creative thinking. I am very appreciative of having completed my capstone project in University in Coimbra and now continuing my education in Sustainable Energy Systems PhD program at University of Porto with the hope of becoming first ambassador of MedTech in Portugal. I look forward to growing my career path in research and actively contributing to the wonderful community of MedTech.
Being the first and only English-Speaking engineering school offering an Engineering Diploma in Renewable Energies in Tunisia, MedTech provides you with plenty of opportunities to sharpen your skills and mind. Studying with new friends and building team skills makes it the utmost experience you will ever have. Also, having a close relationship with bright professors contributes significantly to your knowledge base. It made me realize how the learning environment can make a difference and enable you to identify diversified professional paths and help you in your future life and career. I owe my success to MedTech and I feel proud of being Alumni of the Mediterranean Institute of Technology.
Addressing the EMBA participants: … When I taught the 04 class in June I realized that there was something special here in Tunis when I walked in at 6.30 P.M. to tell everyone that it was time to go home and they said they wished to stay and complete the exercise. And then seeing you all together 04 and 05 in Djerba, it was even clearer that your appreciation for learning and your creativity to handle new situations was unusual.
The undergraduate program at the Mediterranean School of Business has given me so much more than I expected when I first started it in 2016. I’ve learned so much from its highly dedicated and supportive professors. I believe that the skills and knowledge I acquired are the keys to a successful career. During my final year, I went on an exchange semester to IE Business School, Madrid which was an eye-opening experience. Overall, I can say that I am grateful to MSB for providing a wonderful learning environment and a wide range of opportunities for growth.
Staying on the cutting edge of management skills development, receiving a high standard of international education while being in Tunisia, and pursuing professional experience at the same time, is no more living in a cloud cuckoo land.
After about 17 years of professional experience, I have enrolled in the MBA program in MSB. This is undoubtedly an unprecedented opportunity to bring freshness into my engineering and professional background. It supported me in getting more insights and bringing a positive contribution to the company's strategic decisions. Investing in an Executive MBA in MSB is an inspiring experience that will definitely shape future leadership skills.
I graduated from the ISC (International Scholl of Carthage) with honors (14.2/20) in the scientific baccalaureate series. After a sabbatical year where I learned German and other languages and did various training, I heard about the MSB-HEC Montreal partnership. It was for my discovery and I was able, after passing my entrance tests, to integrate the program. From the first year, I was able to establish a large network which, each in its own way, brought me the added value and with whom I shared my experiences. This richness in the sharing of knowledge taught me a lot, whether it was from the inside with the students or from the outside with teachers or characters who came to testify to their "success stories". I was also impressed by the quality of the teachers, some of whom came especially from HEC Montreal to give us classes. The extra-curricular atmosphere is also rich and omnipresent throughout the various clubs that the campus offers. I consider the preparatory year to be very important in order to be at the level required to integrate the North American university system.
At the moment my focus is on design practice and entrepreneurship. I have co-founded a design studio with a focus on strategic product development, concept design, business modeling, research, and art direction.
Studying at MSB and doing an exchange program at Nova SBE brought a huge impact on how I see things. First of all its ability to see a bigger picture with in-depth analyses of what is needed to be achieved. Secondly, it is a strategic mindset of how a certain thing can evolve or improve over time. Finally, such experience brought me an understanding of how I can implement this knowledge in a different industry and make the best of two worlds. will be honest saying that the whole educational process at MSB was very inspiring and gave me more confidence in myself.
I remember when I decided to follow Business studies at the Mediterranean School of Business, A journey full of opportunities that developed my knowledge within the business field and forged my personality to become a better version of me. I am pleased to announce that I got a scholarship from MSB’s partner, IESEG Business school, for the Grande Ecole master’s program. This new adventure will boost my enthusiasm to develop a professional network through interaction with international students and exchanging knowledge to reach a higher level of added value.
Medtech is one of my best life experiences. During my software engineering curriculum, I not only gathered a strong technical skills background but also learned various soft skills including problem-solving, public speaking, technical English communication, and project management. I’ve met amazing people and learned a lot from high-level professors that participated in my career growth.
Now I am a Software engineer, a data scientist at Think-it (A-Tech Tuniso-german company based in Tunis that works with international companies), and I can say that my three years of engineering at MedTech have a huge impact on what I achieved until now. I am also a teaching assistant at Medtech, I manage a team at Think-it and worked on different projects in machine learning, Natural Language Processing, and Computer vision fields. I am proud of who I became and grateful for what I learned from Medtech. I encourage anyone who would like to join the university and take advantage of this great learning opportunity.
I took this time to reflect on my work in the alumni association and I realized the impact it had on my personal growth and professional as well. On a professional aspect, I became more self-confident about the importance of cultivating a network of alumni and more aware of the efforts conducted by SMU into cultivating and uniting us. As a personal aspect, It helped keep contact with old alumni and get inspired by their paths and be more confident with my engagements. My time in the association has enhanced many skills such as time management, analysis, and communication skills and I am thankful for the chance I had to work closely with the members of the board and especially with the career center members, who were very helpful and guided me in every step.
