UD Lays Groundwork for Student Exchange with Universities in Spain, Peru, Chile

The University of Dallas has signed an articulation agreement with Spain's Universidad Catlica de vila (UCAV) that clears the way for the two institutions to begin undergraduate and graduate cooperative programs this fall. In addition, the University of Dallas recently established agreements with Universidad ESAN (Peru) and Universidad de Concepcin (Chile) that formalize the universities' intents to explore joint opportunities for academic and cultural cooperation.

As a result of the UCAV agreement, undergraduate students of the private, Catholic university's International Business and Management Program will be able to study abroad at the University of Dallas during the spring semesters of their sophomore and senior years, and University of Dallas faculty will teach summer classes in vila. UCAV undergraduate students will live on campus with University of Dallas undergraduates. University of Dallas courses will be taught in English.

In addition, the two universities have formed a cooperative graduate program in which UCAV graduate students are eligible to apply for admission into the University of Dallas MBA Program upon earning UCAV's master's degree of internationalization enterprises and foreign trade or directly following completion of their undergraduate degree.

"From one Catholic university to another, I am pleased to welcome these students to the University of Dallas and to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, one of the fastest growing economies in the U.S.," said President Thomas W. Keefe.

The university is also exploring opportunities to collaborate with ESAN, a university accredited by the Assocation to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), and Universidad de Concepcin by exchanging students and faculty for study and research, sharing curriculum development ideas and establishing cooperative degree programs.

"We're excited about this opportunity to increase global awareness of our institutions and form new partnerships that enhance our academic programs," said College of Business Dean Robert Scherer. "Doing so would be much more difficult and costly without these trans-continental relationships."
