Even in times of a global pandemic international partnerships are blooming. We are glad to announce that KU together with the Gustavson School of Business at University of Victoria are launching a new online program!
The Peter B. Gustavson School of Business is an internationally accredited business school located in Victoria, BC, on Canada's beautiful west coast. Not only is it accredited by AACSB and EQUIS, but it is also listed in the global rankings of the "Financial Times".
Kozminski University and Gustavson Business School have a strong 13 year long history of mutually beneficial cooperation, and this program is taking the next step.
“In times of closed borders, the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project with the Gustavson School of Business at the University of Victoria, Canada gives our students a genuine virtual cross-national exposure. Together with their colleagues from UVic, they will create a virtual international Collaborative Cohort involving five courses, enabling them not only to foster their team working skills but also experience a multicultural exchange as close to reality as it can get during the COVID-19 pandemic.” - says Krzysztof Chmielewski, Vice-Dean of the College of Management at Kozminski University.
As part of this new Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), students of both universities will be able to gain a highely coveted International Business Major from our partner university. Currently, around 30 students from both universities have already signed up for the program, and will be able to benefit from the knowledge and experience of experts of both universities.
“The Gustavson School of Business is excited to be partnering with Kozminski University to offer this innovation in international education to our students in the fall. International experience is fundamentally important to fostering the leaders the world needs, and during these challenging times it is essential to continue offering this crucial experience safely and accessibly.” ” - says Saul Klein, Dean of the Gustavson Business School.
This program is open for our upcoming 3rd year Bachelor in Management students, and there is still a chance of signing up! If you are interested in this program, contact the International Relations Office here.
