Food safety and water quality are the two action items that students of AUT have worked on with endorsement by the Municipality of Byblos since summer 2015. All restaurants of the city were inspected by AUT Hospitality Management students for food safety and handling while all sources of water for the city were tested for quality by students of Water Resources Science. Artesian wells, tankers, potable water in all public schools were subjected to testing in the AUT state-of-the-art labs and results were communicated to the Municipality of Byblos.
For the second consecutive semester AUT students engaged with Babson College faculty in a course on Entrepreneurship. Thirty-seven MBA students had the opportunity to learn from the top faculty at Babson College (ranked number one in Entrepreneurship studies for the past 18 years) how best to take a creative idea to a successful business operation. Interaction through Blackboard and WebEx for 4 weeks in July allowed AUT graduate students to debate in depth the best means to succeed in business and benefit from success stories from around the world and finally pitch their business plans live.
Students wrote feedback about how much they learned from this course offered by Babson College at AUT and their comments ca be viewed on the AUT Facebook page www.facebook.com/aut.edu
This joint effort with Babson College illustrates the policy of AUT to team up with the best universities around the world to offer its students a wide high-quality academic horizon to develop their knowledge
