In today's globalized business era, multinationals all share the same customers and suppliers, need to adapt to the same technological revolution, face the same environmental threats and are exposed to the same risks. The burdens they bear are different to those of ten years ago. In this context, Business and Education in the Middle East brings together academic and business expertise in order to come up with long-term strategies that will greatly benefit universal performance and governance. The first chapters are written by four professional leaders from diverse business backgrounds, who share their experiences, outlooks and forecasts for the next five years on suggested topics. This gives the reader a real-time perspective and explains how professional managers prepare for prospective threats and forthcoming opportunities. The following chapters are provided by four distinguished professors and academic leaders with the position of dean or president in their highly regarded institutions, who were invited to share their wide academic experience. This book shares their experience and knowledge to explore innovative strategies and plans with a new perspective for the future.
