Mahdi ELMANDJRA Award Quality Education and Reasearch

AMAQUEN organizes each year the Mahdi ELMANDJRA Award to encourage Quality Research and Best Practices in the field of Quality Education.
Since 2005, many educational and training institutions won the Mahdi ELMANDJRA award. This, because they have proven that they meet Quality standards. So, Professor Mahdi ELMANDJRA himself presented the prize to the lucky winners.
