Ayman Zohier El Tarabishy Faculty Member

Positions

Dr. Ayman El Tarabishy is the deputy chair and teaching professor of the Department of Management at the George Washing University School of Business. Recognized by the United Nations and the Permanent Mission of Argentina to the United Nations, Dr. El Tarabishy worked to create a United Nations International Name Day to be dedicated to Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs). These Name Days are designated on specific dates, to mark particular events or topics, in order to consciously and actively promote the objectives of the organization. With his novel idea, Dr. El Tarabishy managed to work closely with the Permanent Mission of Argentina to propose a resolution to dedicate a United Nations International Name Day to MSMEs. Approved by the United Nations General Assembly, the proposal was presented by the Permanent Mission of Argentina and 54 countries; thus, 5.5 billion people acted as co-signers of this resolution. From that day forward, June 27th has been recognized as the official UN MSME Day. Dr. El Tarabisy is an award-winning author and teacher. In 2021, he was awarded the GW School of Business Outstanding Online and Healthcare Master of Business Administration Award voted by GWSB students. Additionally, he is the only faculty member in the GW School of Business to teach in two nationally-ranked programs. Having developed the first Social Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Creativity courses offered to MBA and undergraduate students, El Tarabishy is constantly striving to find the perfect balance between tradition and modernization in his teaching pedagogy.
