Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
Potomac College in Washington, DC and the University of Business and International Studies (UBIS) of Geneva Switzerland, signed a new articulation agreement for Swiss/USA Master of Business Administration dual degree program. This articulation agreement formally recognizes that Potomac College and UBIS are committed to providing educational opportunities and services for UBIS’ students to complete a Master of Business Administration degree at Potomac College. Potomac College and UBIS enter into this articulation agreement in the spirit of cooperation and mutually recognize each other as quality institutions of higher learning.
The Potomac College’s MBA degree is designed to provide students with a dynamic and flexible curriculum while studying in two centers of international politics and business: Washington, DC and Geneva, Switzerland. The program also allows students to take online classes from any location in the world.
“This unique opportunity to study with international students online, supports Potomac College's mission to create a rich learning experience for our MBA students," said Debra Jonsson, Potomac College’s COO.
Both Potomac College and UBIS are structured to deliver an innovative, yet practical, educational experience that is ideal for international students. Potomac College is a true international college. Located in the home of the United States government, numerous non-governmental organizations, an illustrious consulting and defense community, and scores of multinational corporations, Potomac prides itself on providing the ideal combination of location and course content to prepare our students to enter today's globalized working environment.
“With this new articulation agreement, UBIS students will definitively add value to their studies. To differentiate on the marketplace, and especially when applying for a job or looking for a career advancement, an MBA with two different views (US – Swiss) is an additional asset to our MBA students,” said Patrick Faniel, UBIS’ CEO.
The University of Business and International Studies (UBIS) is a private institution of higher education, centered in Geneva Switzerland, arguably one of the most influential business capitals of the world. UBIS currently enrolls students from about 40 different countries. Through its international partnerships, UBIS is present in more than 15 countries.
