Middle Eastern and African higher education institutions are steadily developing international linkages and recruiting more international students. Many now send delegates to the main international education conferences – NAFSA in USA and EAIE in Europe. Academics and administrators are now seeking a regional forum for exchange of knowledge and opinion in their professional sectors, one that will address the key issues and challenges that are specific to their international development.

QS-MAPLE is designed for middle and senior university administrators and academics around the world, who aspire to advance the success of their institutions and students on the global stage.
