With over 5,000 students, the American University of Science and Technology (AUST), based in Lebanon, has announced its partnership with Symplicity. With this partnership AUST can deliver career support through Symplicity® CSM™ to actively engage with students with their futures and career goals.
AUST is investing in Symplicity at a time when Lebanon is seeing major economic unrest due to COVID-19, the Beirut blast, government absence, and much more. This investment is a testament to the university’s dedication, even in turbulent times, to help its students find meaningful employment after their studies. By studying at AUST, students gain practical hard and soft skills from a full spectrum curriculum. With such a high achieving, career ready student base, AUST needed a system that was able to track and analyse the student activities in one, easy-to-use solution. With Symplicity, AUST will now have a robust, streamlined platform that enables the institution to holistically support students in their career journeys.
"Shortening the distance between the classroom and the workplace is part of AUST's mission. The American University of Science and Technology believes that it is essential to provide students with career opportunities and career preparation tools,” says AUST’s Vice President Dr. Riad Sakr. “Through our partnership with Symplicity, we aim to further facilitate, for our students, the proper guidance, strategies, and tools needed to launch a successful career, despite all the challenges they are facing nowadays."
“We are extremely excited to be working with The American University of Science and Technology and embark on this partnership together,” said Thomas Jepsen, President of International at Symplicity. “By signing this contract with Symplicity, we will be able to assist AUST in helping its students find the right job and to overcome all the economic challenges that Lebanon is currently facing.”
