Franklin University is proud to announce its new cooperation agreement in the Sultanate of Oman, expanding Franklin’s role as a global institution of higher learning.
In visits to Oman, Franklin University Senior Vice President for Planning and Global Programs, Klaus Haberich, met with representatives of the Modern College of Business and Science (MCBS) in Muscat, Oman to sign cooperation agreements with the institution.
Under the agreement, the Franklin MBA program will be made available to students in Oman beginning in the fall term of 2010 in classes held on MCBS’ campus in Muscat, the country’s capital, largest city, and seat of government. Classes will be taught in English by a combination of Columbus-based Franklin faculty members traveling to Oman and local faculty members from MCBS and other institutions.
