EMBA Program

The Executive Master in Business Administration (EMBA) Program at the University of Balamand, says Mr Kanaan, will help students become aware of the effectiveness of their leadership at work, and will equip students with a broader perspective developed via exposure to different industries, disciplines and approaches. It will open the way to many job opportunities for candidates who wish to become mentors with leadership qualities, effective executives with sound business knowledge and global awareness, or links in a regional network for sharing best practices.

Associate Professor Iskandar Nehmeh, an orthopedic surgeon at Saint Georges Hospital, has recently joined the EMBA Program at Balamand. Dr Nehmeh decided to do so in order to be equipped with business knowledge and managerial skills because he is hoping to open his own polyclinic in Anfeh.

Dr Maxime Beaini, a dentist and owner of the highly-regarded Soft Dental Clinic in Zgharta, is another who has joined the Program. His aim has always been to give the best possible treatment in minimal time and at minimal cost. Like Dr Nehmeh, he felt the need for further instruction in leadership and managerial skills before taking a major professional step, in his case that of opening a dental hospital.  

Two further students on the Program are Ms Lara Bou Dib, a quality assurance coordinator in the Pharma Line Company and holder of an MA in Industrial Technology, currently seeking managerial positions, and Ms Rabiha Helwe, from Jeddah, holder of a degree in Business Administration and founder of the event-planning company Inspired By Me, who wants to hone her leadership skills prior to becoming a teacher and consultant in the field.

Dr Oussama Ziade , lecturer in the EMBA Program and CEO of Intelligile Group, defined the aim of EMBA as that of fostering business excellence and exposing EMBA students to hands-on experience in such challenges to company directors and managers as risk-taking, performance-enhancing, and agreement-achieving.​​
