KIGALI - The fourth Intake of the MBA program offered by the School of Finance and Banking in partnership with Maastricht School of Management commenced this week.
Apart from fulfilling other eligibility criteria, students are required to have a minimum marks for the TOEFL examination of 550 points before they are admitted to the MBA program.
Provisional admissions were given to 86 candidates who passed successfully the English Language Proficiency Tests conducted by the School of Finance and Banking (SFB).
The Rector Prof. Krishna K.Govender, who presided over the commencement exercise, said that the MBA programme will help students to identify possible routes to get the best out of the knowledge and skills they will be exposed to during the two-year course.
“The MBA will provide you with the possibility of immediate application of what is taught to be able to transform your respective institutions,” Prof.Govender said.
He urged students that they needed to manage their time in order to be fully committed to the intensive studies and research involved in the MBA programme.
He however said that they were provisionally admitted and if any one provided wrong information would be discontinued from the programme.
The Vice Rector Academic, Prof. Erasmus S. Kaijage, informed the students that the SFB was in the process of transforming into an international Business School and their excellent performance while at SFB would be a basis for this.
Prof. Kaijage urged the students to always attend classes so that the value of the money they are paying is respected.
The MBA fees at SFB are $10,000 for the two-year programme.
