Wednesday, November 2, 2022
AArU and AACSB will work together to improve mutual understanding of their respective organizations, explore synergies, and collaborate through shared conferences, workshops, and seminars.
The Association of Arab Universities (AArU) and AACSB International (AACSB) have entered a cooperative agreement to advance business education globally. Through the agreement, both organizations will work together to improve mutual understanding of their respective global education activities, explore synergies, and collaborate through shared events.
Established in 1916, AACSB provides quality assurance, business education intelligence, and professional development services to over 1,800 member organizations and more than 900 accredited business schools worldwide. As the longest-serving and largest business education network, AACSB connects lifelong learners, educators, and businesses worldwide.
AArU was established in 1964, and its membership includes 280 Arab universities from 22 countries. AACSB has 577 members within those 22 countries.
"We are honored to be collaborating with AArU to continue to build and enhance the quality and value of education globally,” said Stephanie Bryant, global chief accreditation officer of AACSB. “The depth of experience of AArU in the Arab university sector will wonderfully complement AACSB’s work in global business education.”
The agreement is in effect for five years, with an opportunity for renewal at the end of the period.
