What former student's have said
“We manage life by decisions that we make; some we regret and some we appreciate. Joining the MSESM Program is a decision I will never regret. It has added excellent managerial tools to my bag of engineering tools.”
Esam A. Almulla, First AUS ESM graduate

“The ESM program is what the region needs at this point in time. The market needs more technical managers to cope with massive projects in the Gulf. I feel that I gained a massive amount of knowledge that has helped me develop my skills as a manager and engineer. I recommend the program to those engineers who want to expand their careers and get the better of the two worlds: being an engineer and a manager at the same time.”
Ahmed Bin Adi, ESM graduate

“Choosing AUS to continue my graduate study was the best decision I ever made. It was a fundamental turning point in my life. The ESM program improved my technical skills and enhanced my knowledge in managerial skills to understand better the working environment. It opens for me broad prospects in the construction and management field.”
Nadine Dannan, ESM graduate

“It’s easy to think of a graduate school education as just two years of your life, but the AUS ESM experience was much more. The ESM program opens doors to unlimited opportunities: intellectual stimulation and personal growth to mention two. It boosted my career path and gave me the solid business and management background I needed. And the exceptional people I met are a huge part of the program and have meant great networking and a lot of fun.”
Amal Abu Kwaik, ESM graduate
