Memac Ogilvy Launches Pilot Red Academy Initiative to the American University of Beirut

March 09, 2023:  Aiming to equip students with invaluable knowledge and hands-on experience as they prepare to enter the borderless communications industry
Beirut, Lebanon, March 2023: Memac Ogilvy, the leading creative agency in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, hosted its first Red Academy program at the American University of Beirut in March, offering students from the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business (OSB) a unique guided learning opportunity. 
The initiative is driven by the commitment of both the agency and the university to support and showcase the talent of the youth around the region, with this pilot collaboration as an exciting first step. This initial Red Academy program comprises three in-person workshops, led by expert speakers from Memac Ogilvy, and involves 80 talented young individuals, working in small groups, who seized the opportunity to embark on this thrilling educational journey.


The sessions are designed to allow students to discover and explore the role of influencer marketing and to understand the basics of behavioral science and how to utilize it for successful and high impact communications campaigns, as well as introducing business-to-business influence and effective strategic campaign planning.
In line with Memac Ogilvy and AUB’s long-term joint commitment to equipping students with the required skills and experience to excel in an aggressive labor market, the workshops will give the aspiring professionals the chance to showcase their skills through a competitive series of progressively more difficult assignments.
Students whose assignments stand out will be recognized as winners, and those taking first and second place will be awarded internships within Memac Ogilvy's departments of advertising, public relations and social media.


Samer Abboud, Memac Ogilvy’s Regional Chief Growth Officer for MENA, said: “We are proud to be partnering with AUB and to launch this initiative as part of our ongoing commitment to highlight the exceptional Lebanese and regional talents who are endeavoring to develop smart and creative campaigns amid the ongoing financial, political and social tensions in the country. As leaders in the local and global marketing industry, Memac Ogilvy’s experts are pleased to invest their time and knowledge to ensure the success of the Red Academy workshops and the achievement of its objectives. We are raising students’ awareness of the importance of making an impact and keeping pace with the digital revolution.” 


Dr. Yusuf Sidani, Dean of the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Memac Ogilvy on this endeavor, which demonstrates our commitment to engaging with the corporate sector in a meaningful and effective manner. This enriches the experience of our students, better preparing them to manage high-impact campaigns and grasp the changing landscape within the communications industry.” 
Targeting OSB students, this initiative aims to broaden young people’s knowledge, give firsthand experience and develop the essential skills for a career in the advertising and public relations industry.
