We look forward to hosting more of these lectures and wish every student success in their endeavors.”

The lecture focused on building sustainable business models, as well as the challenges and opportunities that would face businesses, giving example of ALARGAN’s ability to adapt to changes and to lead innovation. Specialists also gave insights on project management, organizational structure, time scheduling and cost estimation. The workshop was followed by an interactive activity and a tour of the ALARGAN Business Park, the first green building in Kuwait and the first development to obtain the Platinum ranking for the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program, which is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
