The Management Department in The American University in Cairo’s school of Business, Economics and Communications has been ranked among the best 1,000 business schools in the world by a French consulting firm.
AUC was recognized by Eduniversal, an higher education consulting firm for businesses and institutions, during its November convention in Paris.
The firm made its decisions following a study of over 4,000 institutions, according to a company release.
Eduniversal placed AUC among the top 100 business schools in its rankings, which were defined as “programs with major international influence.”
The firm bestowed AUC with having “best business program in Egypt.” It also ranked AUC among the top three business schools in Africa, also including the South African schools, the University of Cape Town and the University of Stellenbosch.
Attending the convention was BEC Dean Dennis O’Connor, who met with heads of business schools around the world. Many expressed an interest in working with AUC, he said.
“I was very impressed by the work that these new schools and programs are doing with recruiting students and developing curricula,” O’Connor said. “It reemphasizes the idea that there is a fierce competition among business schools and continuous improvement.”
