At times where seeking higher education abroad has become out of reach for many Lebanese university students, HEC & CMA CGM have decided to partner and launch The “CMA CGM Excellence Fund for Lebanon”, a grant program aimed at accompanying 200 of Lebanon’s most outstanding talents over the next decade. The plan will kick off in September 2022, after an initial period designed to select the country’s future leaders amongst its university population.

Such initiatives are more than welcome in such difficult times, and to have one of the world’s leading business schools team up with one of the world’s leading maritime transport companies to help young Lebanese talent is just great!

The CMA CGM Excellence Fund for Lebanon, as stated by CMA CGM’s French Lebanese president Rodolphe Saadé, has long displayed an engagement towards educating Lebanese youth and has supported 2,600 pupils in Lebanese primary and secondary schools in 2021-2022.
