The Mubarak al-Abdullah Joint Command and Staff College (Arabic: كلية مبارك العبدالله للقيادة و الأركان المشتركة - دولة الكويت‎, abbreviated in English as MAJCSC) is a military educational institution in Kuwait City, Kuwait, which prepares field grade officers to lead at the operational level of warfare.[1] The British Embassy in Kuwait considers the College to be "the premier college of its type in the Gulf."[2]

It is based on the Joint Services Command and Staff College in Shrivenham, United Kingdom. Because of early cooperation with the British military, and the manner in which its curriculum was modelled on British curricula, the College has retained British military instructors to this day.[3]

It trains and educates officers from all military services and all nations in the Gulf Cooperation Council.

The College is named after His Excellency Lieutenant General Sheikh Mubarak Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Chief of General Staff of the Kuwaiti Armed Forces from 1963 to 1980.
