Lebanon Export Academy in Brief

Lebanon Export Academy is the first-of-its-kind academy to equip Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and cooperatives in Lebanon with the needed know-how to scale up their operations and increase their readiness to export.

The academy offers in-person and online classes along with self-paced courses on various topics related to export readiness, including how to write an export plan, conduct market research, understand export documentation and legal requirements, set export prices, and find suitable financing options among other topics.

Lebanon Export Academy is implemented by UNIDO and UNDP under the joint UN – Productive Sectors Development Program (PSDP), that aims to support gender-responsive job creation and economic opportunities in the agriculture and agri-food sectors, prioritizing women and female youth in disadvantaged areas.

In the first phase of the launching, the courses will be provided to companies and entrepreneurs from the Agriculture and Agri-food sectors; however, at a later stage, courses will be accessible for companies in other productive sectors including manufacturing, agriculture, ICT and technology and media, and telecommunication.

Trainers' Eligibility Criteria

To apply as a trainer, you should have:

  • A university degree in economics, business, trade, marketing, law or agri-food related field
  • At least 5 to 8 years of practical working experience in delivering business related courses 
  • A minimum of 3 years of practical working experience in one of the following export development or promotion topics: Export Readiness, Market Intelligence, Export Financing & Financial Management, Quality Requirements and Standards, Export Procedures, Freight and logistics, Export Marketing, Branding & Positioning
  • The capacity to use English and Arabic as a working language


In the first phase, at least 70 MSMEs and cooperatives from the Agriculture and Agri-food sectors will benefit from the training, 40 of which will be women-led businesses.

Courses are designed in an accessible way for a variety of audiences from different academic and professional levels, targeting both early stage as well as established exporters.

Companies can subscribe to course packages or take individual courses depending on their needs.

Self-paced courses will also be available to give busy executives access at their convenient times.
