​American ​University ​of ​Beirut.

Why this space?

Founded ​in ​1866 ​and ​overlooking ​the ​Mediterranean ​Sea, ​AUB ​is ​the ​oldest higher ​education ​institution ​in ​the ​Middle ​East. ​Built ​upon ​the ​values ​of ​creative and ​critical ​thinking, ​lifelong ​learning, ​personal ​integrity, ​civic ​responsibility, ​and leadership, ​UXB partnered up with the Office of Information Technology. The ​Suliman ​S. ​Olayan ​School ​of ​Business ​is ​AUB’s renowned ​business ​school ​with a ​reputation ​for ​cutting-edge ​digital ​and ​marketing ​programs, ​and ​a ​mission ​to “transform ​business ​thinking ​in ​the ​region.”. ​At ​UXB, ​we ​too ​aim ​to ​bring ​together technology, ​business, ​creativity, ​and ​opportunities ​for ​learning ​and ​growth, ​and ​are therefore ​thrilled ​to ​be ​able ​to ​host ​our ​event ​in ​this ​symbolic ​space.

That they may have life and have it more abundantly. ”
