Our History

MECAT is a multinational educational organization with offices in the United States, UAE, and Lebanon. Our journey started in the early 1990s, training career professionals in the fields of Business, Education, and Computer Science. Our trainees currently occupy leadership positions in their fields of expertise, and attribute much of their success to the high-quality education delivered by MECAT. In 2000, MECAT founded the Modern University for Business and Science, one of the most successful Lebanese universities in the new century, with a commitment to modernize higher education in the Middle East. MECAT was able to overthrow many of the archaic and classical approaches in education by focusing on hands-on training and fostering creativity and innovation. MECAT's journey continues with new offices in the United States of America, where it is at the hub of innovation, technology, and creativity in the Silicon Valley area of California. Our new offices in Dubai, UAE at Dubai Knowledge Village bring the latest advancements in the world of Business, Education, Social Work, and Research to the Middle East, ensuring that success and development do not remain haphazard processes, but rather well-developed and clear individual and organizational strategies.

Our Philosophy

MECAT is a pioneering and innovative training academy that is unmatched in its forward-looking and scientific approach to training. We strive to build a creative, successful, well-rounded professional. Active learning constitutes our modus operandi and our methods utilize the latest in the world of educational neuroscience and technology. MECAT’s team of experts, coaches, mentors, and trainers share a philosophy that is rooted in modern pedagogical approaches to offer a new outlook on learning and training. We distinguish ourselves from the competition by being the only academy employing curricula that integrate innovative discoveries in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and education. Our main focus is to develop the knowledge base, business acumen, and technical skills of our trainees, in addition to customized strategic plans for whole organizations. Our clients should expect to receive the gold standard in training, allowing them to address the everyday challenges of a fast-paced, constantly changing work environment through scientifically and practically proven solutions rooted in design-thinking and growth mindset.

Our Curricula

Our curricula are carefully designed to engage trainees in active learning, allowing the students to be engaged in the material, instead of passively listening to information about it. Active learning allows learners to master a set of adaptable skills where the material becomes intuitive. Flipped classrooms, interactive lectures, and open-source and proprietary digital platforms are only examples of the methods used in our training. Critical cognitive skills are introduced through methods that utilize the science of learning to reinforce essential concepts. We make sure that our trainees grow to master the education that we offer, by training them on new cognitive skills and fundamental methods to develop and use their knowledge.

Optional Online/Distance Learning Attendance

Students are also permitted to enroll at MECAT on an online/distance learning basis.
