Upon graduating, he went overseas to study the Islamic sciences for nearly four years in Syria, Morocco, Mauritania and the Saharan Desert with some of the most renowned scholars of the Muslim world. After studying abroad, he returned to the U.S. to obtain his Master’s degree in business (MBA).
Mohamed Geraldez is an American Muslim entrepreneur who is in Malaysia attending the Global Entrepreneurship Summit with President Obama and his group.
