The Modern University for Business and Science (MUBS) is planning to open a Faculty for Health Sciences. The faculty will include the majors of Nutrition, Public Health, and Optometry.

Hikmat Daou, Public Relations Director at the MUBS, said: “A new building was established for the faculty, all the labs and equipment needed are ready.”

The faculty started admitting students and will open officially in fall 2013. The new majors will be distributed over MUBS’s four campuses: Damour, Baakline, Aley, and Hamra.

Daou said: “The MUBS will invest around $1.5 million for establishing the Faculty of Health Sciences, as well as developing the university at all technological and logistic levels.”

The MUBS also signed a strategic partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University and Staffordshire University in the United Kingdom (UK). The partnership resulted in the establishment of the British Academy in Lebanon (BAL). “The BAL delivers the same academic programs as those in the UK. This means using the same books, and adopting the same objectives and assessments,” Daou said. She said: “Students at BAL can obtain the same quality in the proposed programs, controlled by the same professors at Cardiff, and at tuition fees almost 50 percent lower than in the UK.”

The BAL offers programs at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, including Business Management Studies, Business Information Systems, and Social Media Marketing, MBAs in Project Management, Events Management, Tourism Management, and Hospitality Management, and a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA).
“Undergraduate and graduate students will receive dual degrees from Cardiff Metropolitan University and MUBS, while DBA students will receive a degree from Staffordshire University,” said Daou.
