The latest installment of the Forbes list of the most influential women of the Middle East includes nine AUB graduates and former students.
Forbes compiles this list of influential women by ranking businesswomen of the Middle East based on the revenues of the companies they lead; the title, scope, and impact of the role they perform; the amount of experience they possess; and the growth of their firm and other initiatives that they have led over the past three years.
Since women began being admitted as regular students to AUB in the 1920s—well ahead of many top universities in the US—female graduates have gone on to excel in positions throughout the region and around the world. The Forbes list confirms that AUB alumnae continue to flourish in the business world, as they do in a vast array of other fields.
