The Executive MBA program gave me much more than I expected
Souheil Ben Abdallah
As alumni of SMU University, we quickly became colleagues, collaborators and above all, friends.
It really has been an amazing life experience.
The Executive MBA gives me the opportunity to develop my leadership and management skills.

Le programme Mini MBA est une bonne alternative à un MBA classique assuré en partenariat entre la MSB Tunis et HEC Montréal. Les professeurs de ces deux écoles qui assurent l’enseignement sont des professionnels de haut niveau qui transmettent leurs expériences respectives à travers des cours participatifs et très interactifs. Cette formation a considérablement renforcé mes compétences de manager. J’ai pu y apprendre et mettre en pratique de nouveaux outils de gestion importants, dans des domaines aussi variés que la logistique, l’analyse financière ou l’habileté de management de personnes. Elle m’a également enrichie sur les bonnes pratiques de direction d’entreprise à avoir en 2021. L’ensemble des modules enseignés seront un véritable plus pour la suite de ma carrière et auront un impact réel sur moi, en tant que personne et en tant que professionnel.

Le programme BAA 2+2 MSB – HEC Montréal est une formation d’élite qui s’inscrit dans le cadre de la politique d’excellence de la MSB et de la recherche de partenaires de renommée internationale. La diversité des cultures est un enrichissement aussi bien pour nos étudiants que pour l’équipe MSB. Nous sommes fiers de compter HEC Montréal parmi nos partenaires et souhaitons développer d’autres formes de collaboration avec cette institution pour faciliter à nos étudiants l’accès à des expériences à l’international.

Throughout my studies at MSB, i had the opportunity to meet many incredible people. Being active in many clubs helped me a lot. Since my first year, I was already part of the student life community and Enactus SMU. I also was one of the founders of the Lions Club and became one of the ambassadors of the EFMD Platform Highered. These extrasolar activities helped me learn many new skills. I had the opportunity to discover public speaking in Enactus and Communication and event organizing with student life. In my second year, I became the student life coordinator at MSB, this job is an amazing experience as it helped me grow and become more organized in my studies. Thanks to MSB I had the opportunity to participate and co-organize many hackathons, one of them was the biggest one in Africa AI HACK. This hackathon was one of the best experiences in my life as I had the opportunity to meet many people from Google Mena that had always inspired me. When I first joined MSB, I would have never thought that I will be able to do all of this, I always thought that I was more up for engineering studies. But with time I saw the potential of a business student in me and thanks to the professors and the amazing community we have here I even got the chance to start and become the project manager of a sustainable clothing line with Enactus. In two years I learned a lot and grow so much. I will forever be thankful. One piece of advice I can give is to always believe that you are capable of more, that’s the key to success.

I am thoroughly impressed with the Mediterranean School of Business. The students are as good as taught at top US and British business schools. They are so eager to learn, and really appreciate new concepts and ways of thinking. The facilities are first rate: a good amphitheater classroom, and state-of-the art technology. I have benefited greatly by my time at the MSB.

I enrolled in the UPM program in 2014 after graduating with a license in management at MSB. This was an obvious choice for me as I wanted to pursue a career in consulting in Europe and the UPM program at MSB was the most complete program to answer my needs. My time at MSB as a master's student in business analytics and Big Data marked a tipping point in my professional career. My specific aim was to learn how to make sense of and derive intelligence from the increasing amounts of data that businesses hold about their operations and customers. I wanted to understand and learn about the latest trends available to tackle contemporary business challenges. Usefully, MSB additionally provides soft skills-related courses such as public speaking and professional presentations to complement the technical skills taught in the core subjects. At the same time, the class environment was genuinely enjoyable, and the 2 years were valuable and rewarding experiences at a personal level. Today, 4 years after graduating from MSB, I can confirm that choosing the MSB UPM program was the right decision as I am currently holding a project manager position working with digitalization projects throughout Europe.
Before enrolling in SMU, my life was pretty monotonous. All I did was study and go home and I never thought that there was anything beyond the academic. After joining SMU, I learned that studies are very important but not enough, that you had to practice what you learned in their classrooms, that it was primordial to build and shape my soft skills while I had the change so I joined the student life and took a half time job on campus, founded an online magazine for the university, participated in various competitions and even went up for class representative. The reason behind me joining this university is the education they provide and the extracurricular they encourage. You might think that clubs and activities might distract me from my studies. Well, I wouldn’t be so sure because my grades and GPA went up, my confidence as well and my time management was better making me an excellent student but also an even better manager.
EMBA (Cohort 2010)
With an engineering background and after 10 years working for the ASSAD Group at various managerial positions, I decided to go for an Executive MBA at MSB in 2010. It was a great experience that helped me better understand the different aspects of the business and be more focused on the opportunities to develop. Today, 10 years later, I am managing 3 subsidiaries within the ASSAD Group in a new business line that we developed to diversify our activity. Thank you MSB Team for your contribution to boosting my career.
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.

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.

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.
Valedictorian Licence 2015
It is with great pleasure that I have learnt about my acceptance at IESEG for a double-degree MSB-IESEG Master program thanks to the partnership between the two universities. My 3-year academic journey at the Mediterranean School of Business allowed me to shape my professional career along with a self-development accomplishment. Now, moving forward with a Master Grande Ecole at IESEG will certainly further strengthen my competencies.

HEC Program Student
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.

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.

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.
Participating in the EMBA program at MSB was the best decision I have ever made in my life! It is an outstanding program that developed my Entrepreneurial Spirit and boosted my career. Thanks to its global education and its renowned international faculty coming from prestigious universities, I improved my managerial skills, and I launched my own business in different fields. It was also a great opportunity to meet talented and amazing managers from around the world. This life-changing EMBA program could not have been a success without the support and help of a professional and lovely MSB staff! Today I'm very self-confident and well equipped to run my businesses and lead companies’ transformations.
I created my UTM link in order for the Highered staff to keep track of my activities. In fact, each week, a responsible send us the number of users and sessions that each ambassador has reached. I posted on many groups targeting many students who are seeking an internship or job abroad using my UTM link. I created an Instagram account, and I posted some of the opportunities that you mention every time.
