About CEC

​​​​​​​​Letter from CEC director, Ziad Shaaban

The term "continuing education" describes the process of learning new skills and acquiring knowledge that complements formal schooling. Most people opt for continued education to further their knowledge base and their employability. Throughout its history, spanning more than 45 years, the Continuing Education Center (CEC) has been helping all those who seek it develop their skills and further their learning. CEC activities and learners transcend the boundaries of Lebanon as our services are offered in countries throughout the Middle East. However, it is always our learners that are at the heart of CEC's success. It is our learners from their diverse professional, personal, and cultural backgrounds that reinforce AUB's commitment to attracting more regional students from diverse backgrounds through professional programs. 

It is our learners that are at the heart of CEC's success. It is our learners from their diverse professional, personal, and cultural backgrounds that highlight AUB's commitment to attracting more regional students from diverse backgrounds through professional programs. CEC upholds AUB's motto "so that they may have life and have it more abundantly" by extending the resources of the university into the community and region to provide high quality, lifelong learning educational opportunities for people of all educational and professional needs.​​​
