Lebanese International University

Lebanese International University (LIU) is a private university in Lebanon with campuses across the country and even abroad.

The Lebanese International University, or LIU, started its journey in 2001 as "The Bekaa University." Born from the vision of philanthropist Abdul Rahim Mourad, it sprouted its first campus in the fertile Beqaa Valley. In its inaugural year, it welcomed its first batch of eager freshmen, laying the foundation for its academic legacy.

Soon, LIU's ambitions blossomed beyond the Beqaa, and with a new name "Lebanese International University," it opened its doors in bustling Beirut. This expansion ignited a period of rapid growth, with campuses blooming across Lebanon in Sidon, Tyre, Nabatieh, Tripoli, and Mount Lebanon. LIU's reach even transcended national borders, establishing sister universities in Yemen, Senegal, and Mauritania.

Through this rapid expansion, LIU remained committed to its core values of providing affordable, high-quality education. English-language instruction became a hallmark, attracting students seeking internationally recognized qualifications. Research and development became a priority, forging partnerships with prestigious universities and institutions worldwide.

Today, LIU stands tall as a leading educational force in Lebanon and beyond. Its nine campuses cater to a diverse student body, nurturing the next generation of professionals and scholars. Ranked among the top universities in the nation, LIU continues to write its story of academic excellence, driven by its unwavering commitment to education and innovation.

Based on the QS World University Rankings of 2024, Lebanese International University is positioned as the #577 top university in the world, which makes it the #2 top university in Lebanon.
