“The Alumni Association is a global collective of graduates from a diverse range of cultures and communities, all of whom have first-hand experience in helping to bridge the gap between the West and the Middle East.”
For the past fifteen years, members of our MBI Alumni Association – from all over the Middle East and North Africa – have travelled to Universities in the West in order to further our studies and help broaden our understanding of the wider world.
In doing so we have seen many advancements in cultural exchanges, improved awareness and respect for each other’s way of life. Together we have helped foster mutual understanding, shared knowledge and meaningful growth… and helped push forward the cultural dialogue between the West and the Middle East.
In our experience, education has been the catalyst for this deeper understanding, and we firmly believe that this will be the key to unlocking a wider range of freedoms and opportunities for everyone.
Now, spread out across the globe in our respective careers, we are able to use our experiences to encourage open, inclusive and constructive dialogue between the Middle East and the West… as well as working with like-minded individuals and organisations to help bring the world closer together.
What We Advocate
The MBI Alumni Association is a worldwide group of like minded individuals, striving for advancements and equality in the fields of education, cultural dialogue and good governance.
We believe that education has a major role to play in both the advancement of the Middle East... and in breaking down barriers between the people of the Middle East and the wider world.
Together we have helped foster mutual understanding, shared knowledge and meaningful growth… and helped push forward the cultural dialogue between the West and the Middle East.
Many of our Alumni are employed in pivotal positions - across numerous sectors - where we can champion the policies of good governance and advance the causes of fairness and human rights.
