Hadi Sayyari Leader of Mahan Business School


Message from The Leader of Mahan

I praise a teacher who teaches contemplation not thoughts.

In communication era, our surrounding environment is changing rapidly. Hence,  living proudly in the Global Village demands specific superior skills. Optimal utilization of existing changes and opportunities would be merely made by acquiring managerial capabilities. Consequently, gaining recent knowledge and advanced sciences and technologies as well as educating ap­plied knowledge techniques are vital.

With cooperation of well-rounded managers, active in the fields of industry and services, we aim to walk effectively towards transferring applied knowl­edge to future managers.

And have no other mission but educating based on science, skill and art of management.


“Be Pleased and Please People”

Hadi Sayyari   

Leader of Mahan
