AMMAN — Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organisation, has received an honorary doctorate in Humane Letters from the Lebanese American University (LAU) for his leading role in the development of the business sector globally, according to a statement received by The Jordan times on Wednesday.

He was awarded the honorary doctorate during the LAU 93rd Annual Commencement Exercises held in Beirut.

Abu-Ghazaleh thanked LAU's President Joseph G. Jabbra for this honour, and recalled his own graduation ceremony in the 60s. He spoke about his personal experience and asked LAU graduates and students to remember the "prescription for success".

"Just like your non-stop heart, rest is bad for your health. At school, you learn lessons and sit for exams, at the workplace you face exams and learn from them," he noted.
