King’s College London is to work with the Newgiza University (NGU), Egypt, to develop a new undergraduate business degree.

King’s has signed a five year academic collaboration agreement with NGU to create and deliver a high quality degree which will see senior staff from the newly formed King’s Business School faculty working with NGU colleagues in strategic planning, organisation and governance of the new business programme.

The programme aims to be high quality and contemporary and partnership work begins on September 24.

NGU is a private university in the Cairo satellite city of New Giza, the Arab Republic of Egypt, and aims to become a leading educational hub offering a range of academic degrees.

It has a number of collaborative arrangements and partnerships with educational, research and health service institutions both within and outside of Egypt.

Executive Dean of King’s Business School Professor Stephen Bach said: ‘We are thrilled to be working with NGU on this proposition which we believe will offer very exciting opportunities for a generation of young bright people from Egypt and the region to become the business leaders of the future.’

Pro. A. Sameh Farid ,NGU President, stated after the signing ceremony with King’s College London that this academic collaboration is a major step forward to enable NGU to fulfill its commitment towards its students and society in delivering a high quality state of the art education in business and finance.
It will prepare NGU students to be active and informed participants of the cultural life of the city and the world, able to meet and grow with the changing needs of industry, business and professions.

We hope our joint efforts shall encourage and promote lifelong learning, and inspire our young generations to reach for their educational aspirations.

  • To foster an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to ideas and issues in a range of organisations and sectors.
  • To enable students from diverse educational backgrounds to understand organisations, key aspects of their management, and the external environment in which they operate, both in Egypt and globally.
  • To allow students to tailor the programme to meet their needs by choosing to specialise in an area of concentration from the third year onwards, or to remain broadly based.
  • To enhance students’ interpersonal, communicative and employability skills and thus contribute to their ongoing personal development.
  • To produce graduates who are well equipped for more advanced study or employment, both in Egypt and globally.
