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.

L’année 2020, n’est pas l’année que nous attendions, mais c’est l’année que nous avons eu !
C’est l’année qui nous a poussé à tellement de changements dans notre manière de vivre, de nous comporter et de travailler.
C’est l’année qui a apporté à chacun d’entre nous plusieurs challenges, personnels et professionnels.
C’est l’année qui nous a mené à de nombreuses transformations dans nos entreprises et qui nous a montré que derrière tout changement, il y a une opportunité.
2020 c’est aussi l’année du premier Mini MBA à la MSB !
Comme vous l’avez compris, nous aussi durant ce Mini MBA nous avons dû nous adapter à de multiples contraintes (présentielle, Hybride, à distance) et de changements de programmation dû à la Covid 19.
Tous ensemble, nous y sommes parvenus grâce notamment au professionnalisme de l’équipe de la MSB, la disponibilité des professeurs qui malgré le décalage horaire avec le Canada, ont pu remplir parfaitement et avec compétence tous les cours programmés.
Pour nous « les étudiants », Chefs d’entreprise, Cadres supérieurs, cette expérience nous a permis de nous replonger dans le magnifique milieu estudiantin tout en partageant tous ensemble nos différentes expériences professionnelles.
Ce Mini MBA a été pour nous une opportunité de nous redécouvrir, mieux nous connaitre à travers de multiples cas pratiques avec l’aide de professeurs compétents, maitrisant parfaitement leur sujet.
Les différents modules étudiés ont répondu à l’ensemble des compétences que doit maitriser un bon manager.
Jeunes ou moins jeunes, nous avons tous utilisé cette jeunesse pour apprendre le plus de choses possibles et de nous éloigner de l’ignorance tout en nous rapprochant jour après jours de nos rêves !
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.

Junior MedTech Student
Coming to MedTech was a last-minute decision for me. As a Tunisian student who decided to transfer from studying pharmacy to computer system engineering, I really wanted to make the best decision for myself. Now looking back, I could not be any prouder of myself for making such a decision, especially after having a merit scholarship and being on the dean's list. Honestly, I believe that the best thing about MedTech is the mix between engineering and entrepreneurship

Student at MedTech
My name is Dana Al Darras a software engineering student in Medtech. When I first applied to the university we were told about the job fair, an annual event where we get to meet and connect with various companies on our own campus. The concept was mindblowing but I as a first-year student it was a bit intimidating as we had no experience in building a personal brand, a CV, a LinkedIn portfolio or any of the requirements that make a student a considerable candidate for internships and jobs in those companies. However, the week of the job fair, the university's career center offered us an extensive series of workshops and lectures that helped me build a strong business persona that qualified me as an eligible candidate for an internship I applied for. Thanks to the two job fairs i have attended on the course of the past two years, I've completed two internships, had over three job offers, and gained a strong network of connections that came in handy when I launched my own startup this year.

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.
EMBA Visiting Professor & professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
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.
MedTech Junior Student
Being an ambassador to Highered and working closely with the Career Center was a very good experience for me. This last period has been difficult for everyone given the current situation in the world but that did not prevent us from working. As an ambassador of Highered SMU and more precisely Medtech, I had a pleasure to work during all this month with the platform representative Stefano. Our first challenge was to welcome a maximum of students from our university within the platform. All this continued during this period of confinement. Our last challenge which is still in progress is that of having a maximum of online internships and a virtual Career Fair. For this, the ambassadors of Highered SMU are working with the DSC (Developer Student Club of SMU) but also with the Highered Platform. This experience has been very enriching for me and I hope to continue serving this cause.
SAP commerce Project manager @ FH madrid
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.
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.
MedTech Junior Class 2023 SE
This internship helped me professionally growing up and provided me with a much greater concept of what to expect after college, a valuable hands-on experience, and a better idea about what knowledge areas and skills I should attach more importance and make further improvement to in my further studies. Most importantly, I was surrounded by the SMU career center which helped me with my credibility and professionalism to receive the attention needed during this internship. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn and get a better understanding of the culture of the company.
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.
Studies & Mentoring Intern @ Tunisi Clearing
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.
Procurement & supply chain intern @ Geoseis Tunisie
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.
Malek El Mufti
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.

Data Scientist @ Think IT
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.
Senior supply chain manager @Bulgin
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.
Professor of management, University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
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.

Phd student @ the University of Porto
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.
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.
