International Business in the Middle East and North Africa

group of international students

AUC School of Business has partnered with the University of South Carolina (USC) Darla Moore School of Business to introduce the first cohort program, IBMENA.

The program is aimed at undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing careers in international business, with an emphasis on the ongoing business activities between the Middle East and North Africa region and the United States.

The IBMENA program builds on the school’s leadership position and unparalleled access to the MENA region. This unique positioning, coupled with the Darla Moore business school’s recognized excellence worldwide in international business programs, and the growing organization among AUC and USC accomplished cohorts, gives participants the opportunity to network with successful business persons.

  • Work closely with experienced and highly skilled faculty members from AUC’s School of Business and the Darla Moore School of Business beyond the classroom, through activities, research projects, independent studies programs and internships.
