Welcome to the AUC School of Business!

It is a great honor for me to serve as interim dean of the AUC School of Business – the only triple crown accredited business school in the Middle East and North Africa region and among less than 1 percent business schools worldwide who received the AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accreditations.

AUC's School of Business has a long tradition of academic excellence and societal impact. For almost seven decades, we have strived to provide our students with a multicultural and diverse learning environment, firmly rooted in the liberal arts education approach and featuring a wide range of rigorous and innovative undergraduate and graduate programs in business, economics and accounting. Our active executive education unit empowers business executives and middle-level managers with flexible and customized trainings and forward-looking nondegree programs to prepare them to lead and drive change.      

Commitment to continuous improvement and to in-depth quality assessment has become part of our DNA along our journey to realize our vision to be the leading knowledge hub with Arab region relevance and global influence. The School of Business has been recording remarkable achievements year after year as a result of an outstanding engagement and collective effort of all stakeholders. Our journey of excellence continues, and the school is looking forward to more successes with several initiatives in the pipeline. We invite you to be part of this journey. Together we will build a brighter future for our children and our society!

Sincerely yours,  

Nizar Becheikh
