Message from the Acting Dean

On behalf of the Faculty of Business and Management at the University of Balamand, I would like to stress upon our commitment as a team of dedicated faculty and staff to work relentlessly towards the achievement of the University’s vision, and the Faculty’s mission of preparing responsible professionals. We vie to graduate leaders who can impact the economic and social development of the region, through quality education and relevant research. In order to do so, we work vigorously to equip our students with leadership qualities and effective decision-making abilities, much needed in a world of flux.

The faculty is home to a host of undergraduate programs including a Business program, an Economics program, and a Tourism and Hotel Management program. It also offers enticing opportunities to pursue one of various master programs including a Master of Business Administration (MBA), a Master of Science in Accounting and Finance (MSAF), a Master in Human Resource Management (MHRM) and a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) offered in partnership with Université Jean Moulin Lyon III. We also cater to executive bodies by offering an Executive MBA, and executive education courses aimed at continuous professional development.

Experienced and well-qualified faculty, impact conferences, distinguished guest lecturers, extensive library resources, interactive classes and mentoring opportunities offered on the premises of a beautiful campus are all geared towards the personal and professional development of our students.
We truly care and dare to make a positive change, by constantly challenging ourselves and taking audacious steps towards continuous innovation and growth.
‘Having a business degree is like having a multi-purpose plug which can hook you into careers in accounting, auditing, banking, finance, development, marketing, sports, leisure, hospitality, management, retail, construction, entrepreneurship, consultancy and many more, so take the leap’.
