Egyptian Presidential Initiative Creates one of the First National Universities in Egypt — Collaboration with Cintana Alliance and ASU Will Enable Students to Receive Duo Degrees in High-Demand Fields
Galala University (GU) is one of the newest fourth-generation universities in Egypt, established in 2020 by a Presidential decree and built by the Egyptian Government. Strategically located in the city of Galala, above the Red Sea and not far from Greater Cairo, and with a population of over 25 million people, the university is planned to grow to 25,000 students. The university comprises fourteen colleges in various scientific fields and disciplines, including business and engineering. Beginning in spring 2022, GU will offer dual degree programs in collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU), recognized globally for its highly impactful research, innovation and teaching excellence. For the first time in Egypt, students can earn a fully accredited bachelor’s degree from both a top ranked American public university and a National Egyptian university, without leaving Egypt. Together, GU, the Cintana Alliance and ASU will dramatically expand access to postsecondary education across the MENA region through this innovative partnership.
Egypt’s future is tied to the development of our youth as well as the youth of the Arab world and our neighbors in Africa. Part of that growth and development will come from nurturing the innovation and talent we have here in our country and the region. We are delighted to partner with Cintana and ASU to bring their premier teaching, research and technology experience to Egypt, expanding our capabilities to support that growth in the process.
