Since its inception, Badr University in Cairo (BUC) has had a strong vision to become among the leaders of higher education in Egypt and the region, and later on in the world. This vision has guided us at BUC throughout all stages of development and has become our guiding beacon.

At BUC we strive to provide the best learning environment in order to become leaders in the national and regional levels with international standards.  We also strive to provide accredited academic programs. In order to enrich our undergraduate programs, we must keep pace with rapid changes in society and in the labor market, which needs national graduates equipped with proper skills and capable of meeting the challenges of today and the future. Therefore, continuous development, in terms of scientific research, is pivotal in order to create an environment that sustains innovation and creation that we aspire for. The university has already started various plans in order to reach international standards of excellence in its learning and teaching as well as its scientific research practices.

I would like to seize this opportunity to thank our prestigious Board of Trustees for their vision and guidance, and the University administration for their enthusiasm and dedication to achieve our vision. I would also like to thank our outstanding faculty members who helped shaping our educational frontiers, and, last but not least, our students to whom I promise continuous dedication and commitment in helping them shape up their future dreams and become the ambassadors of our university.

I have the great privilege of greeting you as president and professor of Badr University in Cairo (BUC). The University strives to meet the expectations and aspirations of our society by adhering to the highest institutional standards and ethics, which includes respect for diverse values, heritage, cultural diversity, integrity, transparency, teamwork, leadership, entrepreneurship and effective communication.

Despite the fact that we are among the newest private universities in Egypt, I take great pride of the achievements of our team during the last five years, whether on the intellectual level or in the classroom, laboratory, and beyond – mentoring and advising undergraduate students.

At the core of every great institution of learning is its faculty. We have chosen to make our institution one of the leading research universities in the region in addition to being an institution that will establish a new level of educational excellence.

Last but not least, none of this would be possible without the dedication of our students and continued devotion as alumni.
