A Story of Unremitting Development
Starting its journey in 1977, the School of Business Executive Education (ExecEd), formerly Management Center, was established as a center of excellence to serve Egypt and the region through specialized programs offering a differentiated learning experience.
The Executive Education programs were offered by the Management Center (MC) and were boosted with the establishment of the International Executive Education Institute (IEEI) in 2008. :
The IEEI catered for the top level management by offering customized and open enrolment programs conducted by AUC faculty in partnership with internationally-renowned partners and universities,
The MC catered for other levels in the organization through customized training, open enrolment programs, certification as well as postgraduate professional diplomas.
Responding to the economic situation and the shift in market needs, in 2013-2014, AUC revisited all its operations and units to make sure the organization is agile and capable of adapting to change in a model that enables it to reach its mission in Egypt. Accordingly, the School decided to restructure ExecEd’s operation aiming to establish a strong and unified unit.
The School succeeded in creating an ExecEd that is well positioned in the market both locally and internationally, offers niche programs that have an edge in the market and competitive advantage and maintains a positive academic, reputational and financial contribution to the School.
Once again in 2019, the School of Business Executive Education is revisiting its strategy and undergoing another major internal restructure aiming for regaining market positioning worthy of School of Business, better participants’ realization of “AUC experience” and overall enhancement in the level of quality and value-added it offers.
