Iran, also known as Persia is located in Western Asia and is a land of enormous diversity where all four seasons can be experienced in a single day. For centuries Iran served as a bridge between East and West, providing the avenues through which artistic and cultural goods and commodities were transported
Western-style, higher education in Iran begins in 1851, when the Darolfonoon was founded. It offered programs in military science, technology, accounting and European languages. The first university was established in 1934, when several higher institutes were joined to form the University of Tehran. From 1945 several more universities were established in the largest cities, Tabriz, Esfahan, Mashhad, Shiraz and Ahvaz. Today, Iran has extremely many universities, 322, of which 54 are public. Private institutions vary immensely in size, but also in quality. Iran has around 100 more institutions at university levels, of which some are of very high standards. These are institutes of technology, medical schools and community colleges.
Iran, with its large population in the region and growing industry, is seeking international quality education, especially in the field of business and management. GBS is one the first prestigious private business schools that has decided to deliver its high standard Western European management courses to the Iranian business people who are looking for a vision of better tomorrow. For this reason, GBS and its Iranian partner established STM International Management Institute (GBS Tehran) in September 2016 and have the scheme to start the first cohort of MBA program in 2017.
