Created by Maggie Nassif
Monday, 11/20/17 10:30am

SUMMARY:

In the last decade, joint degrees have become the latest answer to: 1- educate the global citizen; 2- cut cost. In light of the current financial crunch around the world, academic institutions are pooling resources and expertise to maximize benefits. There are several models that allow for professors, senior administrators and students to travel, connect and interact in person and virtually.

The two main business schools in Egypt at Cairo University and Ainshams University have set partnerships with Georgia State and Kane University/Ocean College respectively. While Georgia State's long standing partnership with Cairo University is a model of a mature partnership that has evolved over more than a decade of programing, Ainshams's newly established partnership makes use of cutting edge online technology.

The Thematic Conversation will feature the four deans of the Business Schools both in Egypt and the US. Topics for discussions will cover funding, logistics, adapting content, system interface, accreditation and managing expectations.
