Research Team

Faculty researchers, along with students, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, will combine their collective efforts across a number of disciplines within the business and economic world, as well as beyond.  Researchers from outside the Faculty and Birzeit University are also key to this element so as to make any and all research efforts applicable and as generalizable as possible.
