Overview
Dean: Prof. ibrahim El-Ghamry, Ph.D.
Misr University for Science & Technology, MUST, was established in 1996, laying the foundation of what was to become a large, independent university. The university offers its students education of high quality and an opportunity to develop their individual intellectual abilities and skills.
The College of Business and Economics, provides an environment in which each student counts and in which college members know students by name. The close attention paid to each individual student is indeed a distinctive feature of the college.
The philosophy of the college is based on the convection that intellectual and social interaction between students and their teachers is the very essence of education, and can never be replaced by even the best technical equipment. It is from this personal relationship that students receive inspiration and gain self-confidence as their educational progress is noted and encouraged. The real assets of the college are the students and their dedication to serious study and the excellence of its teaching staff. The college members are carefully selected, not only for the quality of their educational background, but also for their practical expertise.

Since its founding, the college has dedicated itself to the encouragement and active development of international understanding. The college study programmes are designed with a distinct international focus. These facts are noted from the courses taught. The college curricula include international accounting system, international trade, and international economic impacts. The college students who are presently enrolled come from different countries—a fact which provides an invaluable opportunity to study together and share experiences with students from many different nationalities and cultural backgrounds and forming, in addition, lifelong relationships.

Personal initiative is encouraged. The college prepares students thoroughly for professional careers and professionalism as well as the development of the studenty’s character. The undergraduate programmes are also devoted to the development of the student’s ability to think creatively, and to communicate effectively.

To reach this end, small classes are formed, allowing maximum attention to the individual student. Helpful staff provides assistance with practical matters, such as course selection and career opportunities through the semester. A variety of social events are planned; visits to places of industrial, commercial, cultural and governmental importance are organized. These events and activities give students a better understanding of the curriculum studied.

The Educational System

The College of Business and Economics applies the “credit hours system”.

The academic year consists of two 16–week semesters and an eight-week summer session. Full-time students may enroll in seven courses during a full semester, and up to three courses in the summer session.

The college is known for its flexibility. It provides a broader and more varied education than other institutions in Egypt by giving its students three categories of courses:

(a) general courses designed to fulfil the general academic required courses within their chosen field.
(b) specialized courses in different areas of specialization, and
(c) electives, from which students can choose from any discipline of their interest.

The college also provides a system whereby students are continuously assessed from the beginning of the semester at regular intervals, in terms of class work and examinations.

The instructors, who know each student’s strength and weakness, assess the student's performance periodically. Thus, students are always informed of their own progress. Classroom experience, academic research, and independent studies are augmented by college members who have a wealth of practical experience. On campus, the student may participate in an electronic commerce research centre.

The system measures this progress in terms of credit hours. The student must earn (165-168 credit hours) to be awared the bachelor’s degree.

Increasingly, however, students attend summer sessions as well, in order to complete their studies as quickly as possible.
