USEK is a private Catholic higher education institution founded by the Lebanese Maronite Order. It is the first university which was established upon a Lebanese initiative and by Lebanese citizens (LMO monks). The monks who had been entrusted with a teaching mission for more than 3 centuries have undertaken the management of USEK. Their remit was to provide university teaching, in conformity with the requirements of the labour market and in close association with scientific research. USEK is concerned with the modernization of administrative procedures and academic systems, and also with providing continuous training. Thanks to an extremely dense network of national and international relations, it plays a key role in training highly-qualified researchers and professionals. Nowadays, USEK welcomes more than 7,500 students across its 11 faculties and 4 institutes; i.e. fifteen academic units which offer a broad array of high-level diversified education.
