Purpose: This viewpoint aims to provide an overview of graduate employability in Lebanon from the perspective of the Dean of Olayan School of Business at the American University of Beirut, who is a reputable academic leader heading a world-ranked business school. The discussion also looks at the external factors that affect graduate employability in Lebanon with direct references to the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic crisis. Design/methodology/approach: Through conversation with the Dean of a prominent business school in Lebanon, this viewpoint discusses several topics pertaining to the concept of graduate employability. Findings: To boost graduate employability the focus should be on developing the curriculum, engaging with the alumni network, exploiting the board of governors, and building on the school’s reputation and legacy. Originality/value: Crises do offer new opportunities. Covid-19 pandemic has prepared employers to accept the idea of remote-working which has helped in boosting graduate employability in Lebanon.
