They aimed at establishing a leading university in Lebanon starting from the northern city of Tripoli with a plan to expand at a later stage to different areas in Lebanon and the Arab World. The University seeks to be open and accessible to all segments of the Lebanese and Arab population and to contribute to the development of the youth in the Arab region. The University attracts a select body of students and helps them acquire an applied, cutting edge, body of knowledge in their respective disciplines with special emphasis on ethical behavior and social responsibility.
