Abdul Waheed Khan

Khan’s journey began in a remote Indian village and has paused, for now, at Bahrain’s Talal Abu-Ghazelah Business University, which he serves as president. Along the way, he worked in radio broadcasting, consulting for international organizations, communications and IT, and established himself in academia as an international leader in technology implementation (he earned a Ph.D in mass communication from UW). For Kahn, the highlight of his career was his role as assistant director general for communication and information at UNESCO, where he promoted the use of communication and IT for sustainable development in 192 member states.
