Dr. Ayman El Tarabishy is the deputy chair and teaching professor of the Department of Management at the George Washing University School of Business.

Recognized by the United Nations and the Permanent Mission of Argentina to the United Nations, Dr. El Tarabishy worked to create a United Nations International Name Day to be dedicated to Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs). These Name Days are designated on specific dates, to mark particular events or topics, in order to consciously and actively promote the objectives of the organization. With his novel idea, Dr. El Tarabishy managed to work closely with the Permanent Mission of Argentina to propose a resolution to dedicate a United Nations International Name Day to MSMEs. Approved by the United Nations General Assembly, the proposal was presented by the Permanent Mission of Argentina and 54 countries; thus, 5.5 billion people acted as co-signers of this resolution.

From that day forward, June 27th has been recognized as the official UN MSME Day.

Dr. El Tarabisy is an award-winning author and teacher. In 2019, the George Washington University New Venture Competition awarded Dr. El Tarabishy ‘Most Influential Faculty.’ Additionally, he is the only faculty member in the GW School of Business to teach in two nationally-ranked programs. Having developed the first Social Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Creativity courses offered to MBA and undergraduate students, El Tarabishy is constantly striving to find the perfect balance between tradition and modernization in his teaching pedagogy.

Sitting as the executive director of the International Council for Small Business (ICSB), Dr. El Tarabishy works to uphold the standards and initiatives of the oldest and largest non-profit organization across the globe. ICSB promotes the advancement of small business research and practices. The Council stands as a coalition of over a dozen national organizations, being represented in over eighty countries.

Dr. El Tarabishy created and managed the Global Entrepreneurship Research and Policy Conference (GWOctober.org), which is hosted at George Washington University. This conference combines the latest and most cutting-edge entrepreneurial research with the most pressing and important intra- and international policies to promote entrepreneurship and SMEs. This modern intersection has pushed this conference to high importance in global development.

Creating the most downloaded article in 2015-2016, Dr. El Tarabishy wrote on the topic of Entrepreneurial Leadership for the Journal for Small Business Management. More recently, he has been quoted describing ‘Humane Entrepreneurship’ for the World Bank, OECD, ILO, and the United Nations.

Dr. El Tarabishy previously worked for the World Bank’s Corporate Strategy Group. There, he assisted in developing and managing their technological strategy for the Developmental Marketplace Program. This program set out to identify and support the creation of cutting-edge solutions to the world’s most pressing social and economic concerns. To date, the Global Development Marketplace competition has successfully granted over the US $115 million in awards to 650 winning proposals.

Assisting the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Dr. El Tarabishy aided in the development of effective methods to engage in business in Egypt. His created program, aimed to promote social development and business, was adopted by the largest US delegation mission to Egypt.

Continuing to consult and conduct executive training for several national and international organizations, Dr. El Tarabishy’s clients include the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the World Bank, and the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB).
