Management Consultancy Group W.L.L (MCG) was established in Bahrain
in 1979 to provide education and training across a broad spectrum of
business disciplines. We were the first private institute recognised
and licensed by the Government of Bahrain to provide IT training.
Since that time we have been at the forefront of the development of
programmes and courses leading to internationally recognised
professional and academic qualifications.
As a successful business, we have changed in line with market trends, enlarging
the scope of our operations when necessary, initially within the Middle East and
then worldwide. Good market research, in depth knowledge of the business scene
and educational needs, flexibility and quality of service are the hallmarks of
our success and reputation. Our dedication to the vision of developing people
for the changing business demands within a global environment led to the
enlargement of the organisation in the areas of management consultancy,
human resource management, information technology, e-commerce, distance learning
and the provision of on-line education and qualifications.
MCG was one of the first overseas organisations to be audited and commended by
the UK’s Higher Education Quality Assurance Agency for support services provided
to Sheffield Hallam University in respect of their portfolio of MBA programmes
by distance learning. This success was swiftly followed by MCG being appointed
as the first representative of the prestigious University of London - Royal
Holloway, for similar services in connection with their distance learning MBA in
International Management. The University extended their contract with MCG to
include over 90 Undergraduate and Postgraduate Distance Learning and online web

Close links have also been forged with other international institutions. We have

East and Australia, and were the first approved NVQ assessment centre in the
region for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) also being their
first International Centre authorised to provide the AAT Scheme through distance
learning. We have facilitated access to many executive and corporate programmes
including the Chartered Institute of Management Accounting (CIMA), the
Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute
of Marketing (CIM), and the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS).
The movement to support online and distance education was actively pursued
providing global access to the web based NCC Education Diploma courses leading
to the BSc (Hons) in Computing and MSc in Strategic Business Information
Technology awarded by the University of Portsmouth UK.
Results across this broad spectrum of programmes are impressive with a global
student community in excess of 15,000 being educated, trained and guided to
achieve their potential.
