Our Story

Badr University in Cairo BUC is the first University under CIRA.

(Cairo for Investment & Real Estate Development) is one of the largest educational groups in the region, with more than 20 operating schools such as Futures Schools and British Colombia Canadian International Schools.
In 2010 a group of our high school students graduating from the futures schools came to Dr. Hassan El Kalla (Chairman of CIRA) and proposed that he would consider establishing a university that matches the outstanding learning experience they had at their schools. There and then the idea of BUC was born and it was put into immediate action. The sole mission behind BUC was to create an educational institute aims to serve the Egyptian middle class with highest educational quality at an affordable cost.In 2012 BUC was established, to become the largest private university in Egypt and the fastest growing to offer various programs and degrees that are accredited by the Egyptian Supreme Council.BUC encompasses sixteen schools (Pharmacy, Medicine, Engineering & Technology, Dentistry, Physical Therapy, Linguistics & Translation, Nursing, Business & Economics, Performing Arts & Theater, Applied Arts, Veterinary Medicine, Biotechnology, School of Applied Medical Sciences, School of Law, School of Political Sciences, and School of Humanities & Social Sciences). Furthermore, BUC Science Academy has been recently established aiming to be internationally leading and impactful through a cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that can provide solutions to global challenges related to health, science and humanities. Research and innovation at BUC will define frontiers of science and knowledge, and will have an impact on the society through a Technology, Innovation, and Commercialization Office (TICO) that supports transformative knowledge and research.
