In several cases, the relationships between the Middle East Institute and its corporate sponsors go back more than 50 years – proof positive of the importance they assign to the role the Middle East Institute plays as a source of unbiased analysis of a region where they have significant business interests. A dozen other corporations and business associations underwrite the costs of the Middle East Institute’s Annual Conference. This event brings together experts from across the U.S. and the Middle East, including government officials, policymakers, senior corporate executives, journalists and scholars, to discuss timely issues in the region.
The benefits of corporate sponsorship include briefings by the 40 adjunct scholars affiliated with the Middle East Institute on the politics and economics of the countries of the Middle East and U.S. policy toward the region. Instruction in the seven languages taught at the Middle East Institute is also available, as well as orientation briefings on the cultures of the Middle East for American executives assigned to countries in the region.
