The Suliman S. Olayan School of Business (OSB) is managed by the dean, associate deans, track conveners, program directors and the professional administrators of the school.Track conveners report directly to the dean of the school. The school is guided by the Middle East Advisory Board (MEAB), a board composed of accomplished regional thought leaders and trendsetters in business. The dean’s Advisory Committee is an elected body as per AUB’s faculty bylaws.
OSB is organized into the functional equivalent of multi-disciplinary departments, referred to as “tracks.” While each track has its distinct identity and designated faculty members, a track is markedly different from a department; it allows for multiple faculty membership, offers fertile soil for cross-disciplinary synergy and facilitates faculty cooperation.
The school has three tracks, each encompassing a cluster of distinct academic business disciplines and headed by a track convener (a highly-qualified OSB faculty member).
The tracks and their respective concentrations are:
Finance, Accounting & Managerial Economics (FAME Track)
Marketing, Management & Entrepreneurship (MME Track)
Business Information Decision Systems (BIDS Track)
