ACCET Accreditation

Letter from the Director

​Dear AUB CEC Community,

It brings us great pleasure to announce that the Continuing Education Center at the American University of Beirut (AUB CEC) has been officially accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) as of April 2019, for a three-year period.

This makes AUB the first university in the MENA region to have its continuing education programs accredited by ACCET. The accredited CEC programs include 31 certificates and nine Diplomas in eight different categories:

  1. Business and Management
  2. Cultural and Humanitarian Studies
  3. Education
  4. Fine Arts
  5. Foreign Languages
  6. Health Care (Soft Skills)
  7. Media and Communications
  8. Science and Technology.

For more than four decades AUB, through the CEC, has been spearheading the continuing education sector in the region. With ongoing innovation, expansion and laser sharp focus on quality, the CEC has been ever growing as the go-to entity for professional development and continuing education among working professionals and organizations in Lebanon and the region.

The ACCET accreditation is yet another affirmation of the stellar work that the instructors, administrators and managers of the CEC have been doing over the years. If it wasn't for the collaborative effort of all CEC's team, instructors and staff alike, as well as the university's unwavering support through its various faculties and units, we wouldn't have achieved this milestone.

Finally, I would like to share a heartfelt thank you and appreciation for everyone involved in making this happen, this is truly a substantial milestone for AUB and CEC. Time and time again, AUB proves to be the leading university in Lebanon!

​Ziad Shaaban

Director of AUB Continuing Education Center
