The King Talal School of Business Technology at Princess Sumaya University for Technology participated in the Forum for the Development of Entrepreneurship Education and Business in the Middle East, North Africa and the USA, which was held in the city of Dubai. The forum was organized by the American international organization in cooperation with the US State Department, with the participation of 48 individuals with experience and expertise in the fields of business management and entrepreneurship.

The forum, which was attended by the Vice Dean of the School, Dr. Mohammad Khalid Al-Omari, dealt with important axes concerned with developing and improving education in business colleges and their effective role in community development, and how to create a suitable environment for entrepreneurship to advance the quality of higher education. Also under discussion was the importance of academic programs in business colleges obtaining international accreditation, which contributes to creating real partnerships with the labor market and training students, signing cooperation agreements with reputable international universities in the fields of scientific research, exchange programs for faculty members and students, and offering joint academic programs.

The Dean of the School, Dr. George Sammour, emphasized the importance of this participation to exchange opinions about obtaining international accreditations, and to see the experiences of others in the development of educational technology and the integration of the concept of entrepreneurship within the School's specializations.

The US Embassy in Amman nominated the School to participate in the forum due to its prestigious academic reputation, the fact that it holds AACSB international accreditation, and its inclusion in The Education Magazine’s list of the top 10 business schools in Asia and the Pacific region for the year 2022, in terms of its students' readiness to engage in the labor market.
