Prior to that, I received Bachelor degree with a Prize of Bassel-Alassad for the first Graduate in accounting department from Tishreen University. In 2015 my paper “Corporate Governance and Voluntary Disclosure” was awarded the Accounting department research award for Innovation at Zhongnan University of economics and law.
