“Tolerance and moderation are the definite path to steer the country to safe shores” ~ Najib Mikati


Mr. Najib Mikati


A Man of Tolerance and Moderation


Najib Mikati is the Lebanese telecom tycoon who has always held a firm belief in the future of Lebanon. Born in 1955, Caretaker Prime Minister Mikati graduated from the American University of Beirut with a Master of Business Administration. He then followed advanced management programs at INSEAD, and at Harvard University. He began his political career in 1998 as the Minister of Public Works and Transport. Premier Mikati is also an active element in the academic world. He is a senior member of the Dean’s International Council of the Harris School at the University of Chicago. With the Mikati Fellowship, he provides support to Middle Eastern and Asian students in the Islam and Public Policy Program. He is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the American University of Beirut. With the firm belief in the Lebanese youth and their determination to help build their country on new, solid grounds, the concept of “Chabab Azm” was created. “Chabab Azm” is a students’ organization that looks into the concerns and expectations of the younger generation, their ideas and dreams towards a complete body of work, at the service of both citizen and country.


“Education is the key force in the face of political opposites threatening true democratic dialogue”
