Business Administration Department
Hello, and welcome to the department of business administration.
KUST family brings together multiple disciples to graduate students armed with cutting edge
knowledge, skills and highest standards of ethics.
To equip students with the best possible opportunities, two major changes shall be taken into account.
First, due to globalization, we are living in a larger geographical space in comparison to, let’s say, three
decades ago. Not only goods and services but, also, the labor force moves easier around the globe. This
means that domestic markets are not the only place for local workers. This change requests a type of

Luckily, KUST is located in Sulaimani city, known for its beautiful nature for studying and residence.
Surrounded by mountains, Sulaimani people are proud of having an open culture and political space that
gives the city a unique profile among other cities in the Region and across Iraq.
Once again, thank you for visiting our page.
