Ambassador of Spain H.E. Miguel Moro Aguilar, praised the level of study in Spanish universities, and invited more Kuwaitis scholarship students to choose universities in Spain for their higher education.
In a statement on the sidelines of the ghabqa held recently by the Spanish IE University for students from Kuwait who completed their studies there, the ambassador pointed out that many Kuwaiti students have completed their higher studies from Spanish universities, and that universities in Spain are ranked high among global institutions of higher learning.
IE director in the Gulf region, Lamia Dallah, said that about 2,200 students from the region have studied at IE University in Madrid, with most of them from Kuwait, UAE, Lebanon and Jordan. They have enrolled in business administration, technology and design through English-language programs, in addition to around 200 students from Kuwait who have completed their studies at the university and returned to work in Kuwait. They are currently working in senior positions in several banks in Kuwait, and some of them have established their own business.
Ankit Kumar, a graduate of the university’s programs, said that he was born in Kuwait and completed the MBA program from Madrid, where the study is distinguished by integrating with different cultures and experiences due to the multinationality of students, pointing out that their MBA is comprehensive in everything related to management, which gives a great experience for graduates in all fields. He added that he used to work as a consultant for KPMG International, but now he has started his own business in the field of travel.
