International Programs

Supporting Libya’s sustainable development through training and research


Through our overseas partnerships with sustainability faculties at global universities and other institutions, we offer students the opportunity to spend time learning from global public policy leaders. These intensive academic experiences are shaped to meet the needs of Libyan public and private sector organizations to upskill their staff towards emerging business requirements. Organizations choose to work with LIAS for their training needs due to our established relationships and experience designing and delivering highly specific training programs that address  short and long-term skills needs.
