The College of Business is the backbone of Al Yamamah University. We at the College of Business take tremendous pride in the fact that Al Yamamah University was founded in 2001 as a single college under the name of Al Yamamah College of Business and then it was elevated to a university-wide status in 2008. Currently, Al Yamamah University consists of three colleges (College of Business, College of Engineering & Architecture, and College of Law) and the Interlink English Program. The College of Business is the largest of these three colleges.
Currently, the College of Business offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with five majors: Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Management Information Systems. As well, the College offers robust Master of Business administration (MBA) and Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) along with Master of Human Resources Management (MHRM) and Master of Management Information Systems (MMIS) programs.
