Director's message

We are the region’s first choice for professional and executive education.

Ilias Visvikis

As the upheaval sparked by the Fourth Industrial Revolution begins to impact on the Middle East, we need to build a generation of talent that can respond to a new and complex world of work and ways of doing business. As the economies of the GCC diversify and investments are made to create new, knowledge-based industries, never has it been so important to craft a collection of leaders who will pioneer change and champion new and better ways of building, growing and creating. The AUS Center for Executive and Professional Education allows organizations in the region to access the very best in academia, but also understand it in a way that relates specifically to their business and their industry. The university is one of the most respected in the Middle East, with a strong reputation for fostering academic excellence alongside real-world, hands-on learning. The success of this approach has led us to apply it to our executive and professional offerings— giving the participants the best of both worlds: a strong theoretical basis as well as an understanding of how this theory can be used to promote on-the-job outcomes. If you are looking to take the next step in an illustrious career, or want future-ready strategies and solutions for your organization, the AUS Center for Professional and Executive Education is the best place to start. We hope to be your partner on a never-ending journey of learning, innovating and achieving. I welcome your interest and I look forward to meeting you in one of our courses.
