sorry i have to disagree with you on this one. To start off the region is lightyears behind the world when it comes to higher education. Look at a recent study of the best 500 universities in the world.
not one single university comes out of the Arabic speaking Middle East. Very sad. Especially that this part of the world is home to the first university in the world.
So with that premise, I think AUB (American University Beirut) is the best in the region. It combines good academics, a strong student body, influential alumni, and a tradition.
AUC (Cairo), AUS (Sharjah) and then AUD (Dubai) might follow in that order.
But then again these are all off the radar of excelling internationally. sad.
