History & Accreditation
CITL is considered as the latest college of Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport. CITL was established according to the decision of the Academy’s president in 2007. The Headquarter is located in Alexandria with four other branches in Heliopolis, Dokki, Aswan and Latakia. CITL is the first college in the Middle East and North Africa and ranked the 10th worldwide when it comes to providing education and research opportunities in the field of International Transport and Logistics.Although CITL was recently established as a college, it passed through many development phases starting from 1972 until now. It has begun as a department where management, economics, law and marine insurance were taught and a diploma degree was awarded. In 1992 it became a department of the College of Management and Technology.In 1995, the department was transferred to the College of Maritime Transport and Technology in order to take advantage and integrate with the maritime expertise available in this college. The courses have been developed to cope with the upcoming changes in the field of international transport and logistics around the world and the name was changed to be the Management of International Transport and Logistics Department.The market demand for the graduates of this specialization was growing on a continuous basis and that had a great impact on the number of students applying the department. Therefore, the Academy’s executive council decided to establish the College of International Transport and Logistics (CITL) in 2007 as an independent entity serving the Egyptian industry and the Arab World in general. This goal is achieved by providing specialized educational courses to the students, in addition to academic researches and consultation services in the field of International Transport and Logistics.
CITL certificates are nationally and internationally recognized. The Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities granted CITL full accreditation of its B.Sc. in Trade Logistics and International Transport, which is accredited to the B.Sc. in Commerce that offered by the Egyptian universities.
