Investing in quality education is never a waste of time or money, especially for seniors. The criteria I was interested in were academic accreditation and international recognition. After the PMD, I completed an EMBA with SKEMA. I'm now gladly going to earn my DBA as well.

~Dr. Amer A. Chahine | Dentist, Engineer, and Project Manager.


The PMD was a key milestone that enabled me to join the Executive MBA program at SKEMA. Both programs offered me a highly rewarding life-changing experience. I built an international network, developed my
