FY 2010/2011 Research Topic: 4-15
The Rise of Multinational Corporations from Middle East


The purpose of this research project is to analyze the nature of Multinational Middle Eastern firms. Although the enterprise sector is generally underdeveloped in the Middle East and North Africa, some big enterprises in the region have recently expanded their activities beyond national borders. In this project, we focus on those enterprises in GCC countries and Egypt and analyze their nature and competitiveness.
