Under the patronage of the President of the Council of Ministers, H.E. Mr. Saad Hariri, the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) organized a conference entitled “Accreditation for Reshaping Business Education in the MENA Region”, in partnership with The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This conference aimed at exploring the role of accreditation and its components in reshaping business education in the MENA region, and sharing best practices on celebrating engagement, innovation and impact in business schools.

The conference also addressed the common goal of many business schools in the MENA region, which is to meet and maintain international accreditation standards while becoming part of a shared movement to improve the quality of business education, foster sustainability, and educate the leaders of tomorrow.

The target audience of the conference included business school deans, associate deans, and heads of departments, as well as accreditation officers, quality assurance experts, university administrators, and business professionals.

The event was a great opportunity to foster national, regional, and international networking and to develop personal and institutional networks.
