We are very proud to inform you in this spotlight about several awards given to some of our excellent partner schools.
Let’s start with the first highlights: We have several rankings for the Elon University in the United States. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance placed the university in the top thirty of the 177 private universities in the States. The most important aspects of this ranking are academic excellence and affordability. One of the things that speaks most for Elon is its comparatively low price compared to other top universities.
The University also managed to secure several good rankings from the Princeton Review college guide. They were declared the number 1 best run and beautiful college. They received second place in the category most popular study abroad programme, to which their membership to IPBS most likely contributed. This is the 15 year in a row that Elon has appeared in the Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” guide. The Best 385 Colleges is the 28th annual edition of The Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” book and one of 150 Princeton Review books in a line published by Penguin Random House. It has been featured on NBC “TODAY” more than a dozen times, and referenced by reporters in publications from Inside Higher Education to The Wall Street Journal.
From the university itself, new research by a team that includes Assistant Professor Adam Aiken of Elon has found that investments by members of the U.S. Congress typically reflect their political ideologies. Their law class also welcomed the second-largest class in Elon Law history. It is also its most diverse, with more than half of new students hailing from outside of North Carolina.
In Germany, the ESB Business School has been awarded the AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) seal of approval by one of the world’s leading accreditation organisations for business education. The decision confirms the faculty’s fulfilment of superior quality standards in education and research. Only around 850 business schools worldwide carry this endorsement, including leading American universities such as the Harvard Business School or the Yale School of Management. This means that the ESB can now call itself one of the best Business Schools in the world.
Brock University is set to formalize a partnership aimed at helping newcomers to Niagara through research, outreach and support services. The University will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre in St. Catharines on Tuesday, Aug. 13. The University also took a few measures to make studying with it a bit cheaper.
The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore continues its strides toward internationalization and celebrates the progress it’s made so far. The milestones they accomplished include several partnerships with universities across the world, several new projects and the creation of The Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation (CHEI).
At NEOMA in France, their associate professor in the Strategy and Entrepreneurship department, Sonia Boussaguet, received the Prize for the Best Conceptual Article at the 11th Congress of the Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (AEI).
The DCU Business School is delighted to announce that their Executive MBA programme has been reaccredited by AMBA (Association of MBAs) for an additional 5 years, an accolade held only by the top 2% of business schools worldwide. Their MBA programme has been accredited since 2004 and it continues to meet AMBA’s rigorous assessment criteria, demonstrating the best standards in teaching, curriculum and student interaction.
