The American University of Beirut (AUB) successfully held its Fourth Open House for Graduate Studies. The event was hosted on AUB campus on February 3rd, 2016. It was attended by more than 325 participants from local, regional and international universities and companies. The unique event was a great opportunity to familiarize potential candidates with the Master’s and PhD degrees offered at AUB as well as the scholarships available to students, English preparatory classes and guidelines for submission of admission applications.
Following a comprehensive presentation by the Graduate Council representatives and various professorial speakers specialized in the diverse areas of graduate studies at AUB, participants were invited to a reception that allowed them to efficiently interact with AUB Faculty, relevant staff and current graduate students. Moreover, a series of booths was set up to provide further information about graduate programs, scholarships (including the recently announced MasterCard Foundation scholarships) and services offered by AUB Faculties, the University Preparatory Program (English Proficiency), the Office of International Programs, the Office of the Registrar,
