Improving Education in the Middle East

Improving education is a long journey enhancing the quality of a nation’s teachers, its resources, teaching methodologies, as well as the overall learning environment, cautions BCG’s Leila Hoteit. The partner and managing director explains that countries seeking quick advances must target support from industry and focus on educating for jobs—and must quickly establish best practices that deliver high return on investment.

Leila Hoteit is a core member of The Boston Consulting Group’s Public Sector and People & Organization practices and leads the firm’s education and human-capital-development work in the Middle East.

Leila is a respected expert on the topic of human capital—including education and women’s economic empowerment—in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and broader Middle East region, as well as the author of numerous publications.

Before joining BCG in 2014, Leila was a partner at Booz.
