BZU BERC Mission

  • The BZU BERC seeks to utilize its resources comprised of staff and students that are already engaged in research and consulting efforts coupled with continuous input and communication with private sector and international agencies. This will be carried out through coordinated efforts from the Faculty of Business and Economics, the Faculty Advisory Council (comprised of 9 private sector CEOs, 4 department chairpersons, 2 MA program directors, the dean, and assistant to the dean), the Training and Employment Unit, and Cooperative Education Program.  These sources will provide the contact points with the private sector and communicative mechanism whereby solutions can be offered.
  • The BZU BERC provides solutions in the form of research studies in both an academic and practical capacity through utilizing local staff competencies and international expertise. BZU’s strategic network of partners encompassing private sector entities, public and semi-public institutions, in addition to international and local development agencies and NGOs is key to the effectiveness of the BERC.
