AMICO celebrates its MBA graduates


AMICO strives to provide a work environment that fosters ongoing learning and continuous improvement, and is geared towards developing the career path of each of its members.

Four years ago, AMICO paved the way for 20 of its middle to upper managers to partake in a Mini-MBA course, an additionally enrolled 15 other members of management in a Certified Product Manager course. Each course was taught over a 10-day period and was supervised by Missouri State University and delivered by MERL. Over the last three years, several AMICO Managers enrolled in a comprehensive EBS MBA program, which is short for the Edinburgh Business School Master in Business Administration. The EBS MBA has a success rate of approximately 50%, and to complete program, the managers who were enrolled had to pass seven core courses and two electives. The core courses included Marketing, Accounting, Economics, Finance, Strategic Planning, Organizational Behavior and Project Management. The program was heavily reinforced by both Mr. Mihran Hazarian and Mr. Ahmed El Maghraby, who successfully completed an EMBA, himself. The participants were groomed and mentored by Haithem Fekry and Tamer Khalil who both received their MBAs from EBS in the past. AMICO has supported such academic pursuits of the most challenging caliber by seeking out the service of professional tutors. Of those enlisted, three Managers graduated and completed their MBAs, and an additional three earned Diplomas by passing six of the program’s courses. Those who earned diplomas are still on track towards completing their MBAs by pursuing a passing grade in the remaining two courses. The majority of the AMICO managers who enrolled in the program were granted certificate in Business Administration by successfully completing three major courses.

On December 4, 2016, Mr. Mihran Hazarian and Mr. Ahmed El Maghraby granted the ‘AMICO Extra Mile Award’ to:
  • Iyad Tanbe, Tamim Ibrahimsha and Walid Abdelaal upon completion of their MBA degrees.
  • Ahmed Al Zein, Emad Al Zari, and Mohammed Emara upon completion of their Diplomas in Business Administration. 

Since AMICO implemented the MBA program, the return has materialized with career advancement opportunities amongst those who partook. AMICO has great expectations from its team of managers who occupy key positions as they lead teams and drive business objectives, and will carry on to nurture academic development and continuous improvement. In the same context, the ‘AMICO Extra Mile Award’ was given to Talaat El Deeb for championing the implementation of the CRM program.

AMICO is committed to further developing the program by enrolling new participants. During the year 2017, AMICO will include additional educational programs across various domains.

Congratulations once again and we look forward to celebrating the next graduating class!
