As part of the British School of Business's (formerly British Academy in Lebanon) programme requirements, Mrs. May El Khalil, President and Founder of the Beirut Marathon Association, was a guest speaker on the seminar “Events Project Management” tailored for our MSc Events Management and MBA Project Management candidates on November 26, 2014.
The talk delivered by Mrs. El Khalil focused on transforming the Beirut Marathon from a 300-runner event to the region’s most successful annual sporting event. The Chairman of the Board of Trustees at MUBS, Dr. Hatem Alamy then thanked Mrs. El Khalil for delivering this talk and for her continuous support of the university. The seminar was followed by a Q&A session with Mrs. El Khalil and the BMA technical team who shared their insight on the organization of such a mega event and project. Mrs. El Khalil then presented certificates to our MSc Events Management students as a thank you note for participating in the organization of this year’s marathon.
