One of the most important policies of the International School of Business (ISB) at the Modern University for Business & Science (MUBS) is bridging between academic curriculum and the outside global professional industry. This November, MUBS as one of the Academic partners for BDL Accelerate Conference was granted a special access for its ISB students to participate in the annual Banque du Liban organized event.
Accelerate 2016 is Lebanon’s 3rd annual international conference, and officially the biggest and most influential in Mediterranean and in MENA region. BDL Accelerate is among the few innovation and startup conferences in the world that is inclusive and diverse.
More than 120 ISB students from our 4 campuses participated in the Banque Du Liban conference 2016. ISB students learned, engaged, got inspired, and connected with industry experts, investors, like minded individuals and change makers from around the world.
This international experience was unforgettable for our students who expressed their happiness and eagerness to explore new ideas. The main guest speakers at the conference were Tony Fadel - creator of the ipod, and founder of Nest and Steve Wozniak "The woz"- co-founder of Apple Inc.
