In 2014, University of Tunis was selected from a total of 77 proposals for the World Trade Organization (WTO) Chair Programme (WCP) which purports to assist the University of Tunis in providing students with a deeper understanding of trade policy issues, as well as to strengthen Tunisia’s participation in international trade.
The objectives of the WTO Chair at Tunis Business School are three-fold:
1. Develop capacity- building within the Tunisian university on global trade issues
2. Encourage research on crucial questions and issues pertaining to current global trade patterns
3. Engage in outreach activities in order to facilitate increased understanding of global trade issues among various sectors of society.
