The Management section of renowned Harvard Business Review (HBR) magazine will now be available in Arabic, thanks to a UAE-based conglomerate’s partnership with the business title.

In partnership with Crescent Enterprises, Aliqtisadi.com, an Arabic business portal, has launched a new section with HBR’s Management section.

Aliqtisadi.com will publish HBR.org content, provided by The New York Times News Service & Syndicate focusing on practical advice for managers and executives from the premier source of information on the art and science of business and management.

One of the world’s foremost management titles, HBR is published by Harvard Business Publishing, based in Watertown, Massachusetts. 

The section will feature advice from contributors to HBR.org on topics ranging from leadership to managing yourself. The practical advice offered through this section everyday will present a unique opportunity for Arabic readers.

“Republishing content from HBR in the region’s native language reasserts Aliqtisadi.com’s commitment to Arabic content, and to strengthening media’s role to advocate good business practices in the Arab world,” said Abdulsalam Haykal, CEO of Haykal Media, publisher of Aliqtisadi.com.

“As an Executive in the Arab world myself, I am often looking for, and unable to find, resources that are not only informational in the context of business and its related areas, but publications that accurately inform on locally and regionally relevant topics that might not otherwise be discussed in the predominantly Western publications so easily at our reach,” commented Badr Jafar, Chief Executive Officer of Crescent Enterprises.

“It is our goal to fill this informational gap and need with a revered name such as the Harvard Business Review. This is especially pertinent at a time of extreme promise for the UAE relating to its recent Expo2020 win, when corporations in the MENA region seek to refine their business models into well-structured and sustainable entities led by their interest and desire to access global opportunities.”
