The college of Business is accredited by AACSB International and the Computer Science degree offered by the College of Arts & Sciences is accredited by the ABET/CAC. In addition, the Foundation program in English is accredited by the Commission on Intensive English Program Accreditation (CEA).
The Accounting Department is seeking qualified applicants for multiple positions, beginning September 2017. Candidates may be at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. The successful candidate(s) must hold an earned PhD in Accounting from an internationally recognized university and be able to demonstrate evidence of, or potential for, high-quality teaching and scholarship. The State of Kuwait does not recognize degrees from on-line universities. Appointments at advanced rank require a current appointment at that rank with a research and publication record meeting GUST standards.
