UM Biz School Reaches Out to Latin America, Asia, Europe

WorldMapSmallEarlier this week, the University of Miami School of Business Administration announced agreements with seven leading business schools and universities across Latin America, Asia and Europe to explore undergraduate and graduate student exchanges, faculty exchanges, joint executive education offerings and other initiatives.

Under the agreements, the school will collaborate with Instituto de Empresa (IE) Business School; the Fudan University School of Management in China; University of Sao Paulo in Brazil; the Pontifica Universidad Catolica Business School in Peru (CENTRUM); the University of San Andres School of Business in Argentina; the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM); and Pompeu Fabra University in Spain.

These agreements lay the ground work for developing a range of exchange opportunities between the UM School of Business and the foreign schools, with several already in development. The School of Business and Fudan University in Shanghai have agreed to initiate one-semester MBA student exchange programs beginning in 2009.

“The University of Miami School of Business is uniquely positioned as an international gateway to Latin America, Europe and Asia, allowing us to act as an important connector for students, faculty and business professionals from around the world,” said Barbara Kahn, dean of UM School of Business. “Not only will these partnerships lead to cooperation between our school and the other schools, we will also connect schools in each region with one another for the exchange of ideas and knowledge.”
