HBMSU organizes an annual congress providing a platform to discuss key topics, debate issues of strategic relevance to the Arab World, present innovative ideas and share best practices. It attracts a wide array of academics, government policy makers, professionals, industry experts, NGOs, media organizations and community leaders bringing every year new experiences from more than 60 countries.
A distinguishing feature of the Congress is that it hosts 4 parallel tracks under its auspices as follows:
- Quality and Business Management
- Smart Learning Excellence
- Health and Environment
- Islamic Banking and Finance
The Deanship of Research & Doctoral Studies publishes the Conference proceedings with ISBN including research papers and case studies presented at the sessions. The best paper award winners may submit their papers to the relevant HBMSU journals for possible publication.
Innovation Arabia also features many other activities including policy and strategy roundtables, awards ceremony, hands-on workshops and many formal and informal networking opportunities including an exclusive Gala dinner.
Innovation Arabia provides an outstanding opportunity to celebrate research excellence and promote professional development of the faculty, staff, administrators, and learners. This kind of opportunity is directly aligned with the HBMSU mission and objectives of growing and disseminating knowledge in key areas such as e-Learning, health and environment, quality management and Islamic banking and finance.
