Chancellor Dr. Mansoor Al Awar says ‘Our minds are like parachutes, they work best when they are open, and education is the key.’

Higher education is currently not playing as much of a role in the Arab World’s development as it should. This can be addressed by moving away from traditional learning methods and towards new models that are more innovative, learner-focused, and responsive to the needs of the times. Innovation is the name of the game, which is why HBMSU is setting the pace by incorporating unique ‘smart’ elements into its Lifelong Learning strategy.
