Business Development Manager – Middle East
Who is Ahmad?
I am Canadian born, Lebanese descent. I lived in the Middle East for 5 years from 2005-2010, between the U.A.E and Lebanon. I hold a Bachelors in Science and am currently pursuing a Master’s degree at the University of British Columbia. My diverse experiences, and cultural understanding of both Middle Eastern and Canadian values helps me to bridge two very different worlds and allows me to offer our partners and students a phenomenal experience.
