An education that transcends cultures

Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen and Provost Julie Furst-Bowe were keynote speakers at the second annual International Symposium on Excellence in Education, hosted by e-TQM College of Dubai.

Sorensen focused his presentation on leadership. Furst-Bowe spoke about the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

The e-TQM College is the first online higher education institution in the Middle East. It specializes in the area of Total Quality Management and related topics.

While there, Sorensen signed a memorandum of understanding with e-TQM that outlined potential programs the two institutions can share, such as curriculum and faculty exchanges.

The two universities match in several programs including business management, hospitality and tourism management, golf enterprise management and teacher education.
