Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 2, 2010
NewCom International, a Miami-based telecommunications company that specializes in the global transport of video, data and voice communications via satellite, IP and fiber, has teamed with Thunderbird School of Global Management, a graduate school ranked first in the world for its international business programs, to provide live distance learning to MBA students across Latin America.
Since January, NewCom has been linking Thunderbird’s Arizona campus with the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITES) in Mexico, providing a minimum of 236 hours of satellite service each week to facilitate live distance learning from the two globally renowned universities.
Through live satellite broadcasting and virtual interaction, students living in 14 cities scattered across North, Central and South America can intimately connect with classmates and professors at Thunderbird and ITES from their respective campuses.
“We are honored to partner with Thunderbird on this project because NewCom is committed to using 21st Century communications to promote economic growth in developing countries – and it starts with education,” notes Dora Mejia, director of sales and business development for NewCom International. “Latin America is a vital region and by linking MBA students there with the top universities in global management, NewCom plays a role in preparing these students to become global business leaders for their countries.”
“Our mission as a university is to help business savvy students throughout the world to compete and succeed in the global marketplace,” adds Brett Beyers, manager of media services for Thunderbird. “With the satellite services NewCom provides, we are able to offer students who cannot physically attend classes on our campus because of family, job or economic situations the ability to intimately connect with our professors and obtain a world-class global business education.”
