Today, 23 May 2019, we are delighted to announce that our President Dr. El-Khansa has signed an academic partnership agreement between the American University in Switzerland (AUS) and the University of Prince Mugrin (UPM) in Saudi Arabia. With this partnership now established AUS and UPM aspire to carry out academic, scientific and cultural collaboration activities with the scope to enrich the respective educational functions.
Importance of University Partnerships Worldwide
At AUS we put students in the center of what we do and want to prepare them with the knowledge, tools and training that they will require in the business of tomorrow. Building partnerships with international institutions around the world is of paramount importance and allows our students to have the opportunity to get a fully immersive international experience. Whether it is to attend a seminar by a guest lecturer coming from one of our partner institutions, to do a semester abroad or an international internship we encourage all of our students to take advantage of some of these opportunities to acquire even more lifelong knowledge and experience. Students who wish to do a semester abroad with one of our partners have the possibility to obtain an internationally recognized double-degree.
Our staff and professors are also encouraged to take advantage of international partnerships and expand their competencies by taking courses, teaching and doing research abroad.
The outreach team at AUS strives continuously to build contacts and develop collaborations and partnerships worldwide with leading international institutions.
