University Profile

Modern University for Business and Science was founded in the year 2000 in the town of Damour, the gate to the Shouf Mountain of Lebanon under the name of MECAT. It was the brainchild of a group of intellectuals headed by Dr. Hatem Alamy who had a vision for an educational institution that transcend religions and sects boundaries, cultural differences, and regional and local politics, and become the place that bring together the best minds of the Lebanese students population irrespective of their gender, religious or political background.

 The vision became a reality at the close of the second millennium, in spite of the obstacles that were placed on its path and the challenges and difficulties encountered. With total perseverance, dedication and commitment of the founding group, MECAT University College was officially licensed by the Ministry of Education & Higher Education’s decree number 3585 issued by the Council of Ministers on August 8th, 2000.  In 2007 the university college changed its name to the current Modern University for Business & Science (MUBS) to reflect its new status, vision and mission. The status change was approved by the ministry decree number 868 dated November 11th, 2007.

 The University which started with 17 students and 5 instructors grew steadily over the years attracting students from diverse groups and bringing higher education to students and regions of Lebanon that were neglected and forgotten. Today MUBS enjoys a diverse population of over 1800 students and 200 instructors and 100 administrators spread across its campuses in Damour, Beirut, Aley, Jal El-Dib and Semkanieh center.

 The university stride and advancement have been recognized by peers and communities across Lebanon. It is committed to its goals and continues to push forward to realize its vision through extensive internal development programs in association with the European Union Tempus Programs and partnerships with internationally recognized universities in the US, UK, France and Canada.
