McDonough School of Business Partners with Effat University

The McDonough School of Business signed an agreement in December 2013 with Effat University, an all-women’s university in Saudia Arabia. The partnership provides accreditation, assessment, and curricular advice for their undergraduate program in the college of business. Prince Turki Al Faisal, a Georgetown alumnus and former ambassador for Saudi Arabia, is on their board of trustees, since his mother Queen Effat founded the school. His sister Princess Lolowah Al Faisal Al Saud is vice chair of Effat’s board of trustees.
