Faculty of International Business and Humanities (FIBH)

Engineering is the activity of using scientific understanding and technical knowledge to create useful devices and processes, and management is the activity of delivering them to people at an affordable price which covers the cost of inventing, manufacturing and selling them. Without business, many of the products of the creative genius of science and engineering might never be made available to the general public. Therefore, the collaboration of these two fields will provide students with a solid ground for convergence between technological, business and humanities education. The important value added for technology-based businesses is the development of graduates who can develop real answers to real problems. Real answers are not solely technologically feasible but can be implemented with a realistic and credible business approach.

The integration between these two fields will have the following advantages:

Opportunity for students to explore both their management and technical potential

High rates of employment at graduation

More rapid progression to senior management positions
Besides the above aspects, below are what distinguishes FIBH from other existing business programs in Egypt.
