Cairo University: The Flagship University of Egypt

Cairo University: The Flagship University of Egypt, Said, Mohsen Elmahdy , (2017)


The main objective of this research is three fold; to analyze the status of CU since its founding as the flagship university of Egypt; to establish its standing in research and capacity building, and to identify its influence and impact on the development of the higher education sector in Egypt and beyond. The research methodology was a desk review of data from a wide range of relevant sources, verification of its integrity, and analysis and discussion of its implications. A secondary and noteworthy source of information was interviews and private communications with approximately 25 graduates of Cairo University (CU) whose professional careers have positioned them to comment insightfully and knowledgeably on higher education in Egypt and on CU’s role in particular.
