The Doctoral degrees in Management are highly transferable between countries and have been considered comparable to the British (UK) Ph.D. award by the UK National Agency, and this we believe is a true benefit for our students.
Zug, Switzerland (PRWEB) April 03, 2011
UGSM-Monarch Business School Switzerland and Universidad Azteca Mexico announces a cooperation agreement to offer dual degrees (D.Phil./Ph.D.) across their respective Master and Doctoral programs specifically designed for Executives and Practicing Managers.
The recently signed agreement will allow students from either UGSM-Monarch Business School Switzerland or Universidad Azteca to register in the reciprocal program of the partner university. Upon successful graduation of their home program students will receive the equivalent dual degree from the partner university.
The agreement is seen as a significant step forward for both institutions in further internationalizing their program offerings and degrees. Students registering for the dual degree option are expected to benefit significantly from the extended program network and global coverage of the degrees. Dr. Jeffrey Henderson, Director of Studies at UGSM-Monarch Business School was quoted as saying,
"The agreement with Universidad Azteca enables our students to also obtain either the master or doctoral degree from a federally recognized University in Mexico that is also listed as recognized by UNESCO. The Doctoral degrees are highly transferable between countries and have been considered comparable to the British (UK) Ph.D. award by the UK National Agency, and this we believe is a true benefit for our own students."
The agreement covers uniquely designed programs from UGSM-Monarch Business School Switzerland including the Doctor of Philosophy in Business Research and Doctor of Professional Studies, both thesis-only doctorates designed for executives and professional managers. Graduating students will now obtain the D.Phil./Ph.D. or D.Prof./Ph.D. awards. The Ph.D. in Management awarded by Universidad Azteca has been evaluated through individual assessment as comparable with degrees awarded in the UK, Canada, India, and South Africa by their respective qualification agencies.
