Founded in 2002 by the Philippine’s father of Computer Education, Ambassador Amable R. Aguiluz V, AMA International University - Bahrain (AMAIUB) is a member of AMA Education System which is the largest educational network in Asia.

Ensuring that its vision and mission are in consonance with the Bahrain Vision 2030, AMAIUB endeavors to produce graduates dedicated to lifelong learning and responsive to the growing socio-economic needs of   the Kingdom, the GCC region, and the global setting. This is the university’s modest contribution to the socio-economic development of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Exhibiting its remarkable growth, AMAIUB has moved from its original three-building campus in Manama to a more spacious 57, 450 sq.m. Salmabad campus in April 2008. This brought more developments in the university.

The university offers bachelor degree programmes which are on a par with the best universities worldwide.    AMAIUB takes pride of its programmes which have sustained the rigorous scrutiny of various international accrediting bodies.

The Bachelor of Science in Business Informatics and Bachelor of Science in International Studies are under the College of Financial and Administrative Sciences. All these had received full accreditation status from the European Council for Business Education.

The College of Computer Studies offers the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science programme which is ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) Computing Accreditation Commission) accredited. AMAIUB has made an indelible mark in Bahrain’s academic community being the first private university to have an ABET accredited computer science programme.

The programme offerings under the College of Engineering are the Bachelor of Science in Informatics Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics Engineering. Lately, these programmes also underwent ABET accreditation.

In addition, AMAIUB is developing solid partner networks locally and internationally.

The university has forged ties with two French institutions, namely ECE Paris and IT Paris Eiffel. The partnerships cover various areas such as student exchanges, faculty exchanges, and joint research projects, among others.

Truly, AMAIUB has surpassed the quality standards for its tripartite function which are instruction, research and community engagement.

Ergo, through the excellent governance of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander, and the concerted efforts of the government’s regulating bodies, along with the students, alumni, industry partners, and the various stakeholders, AMAIUB has a promising future ahead of it.
