The University of Regina has signed an agreement that will establish collaborations with one of the most prestigious business schools in the world.

President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Vianne Timmons, accompanied by Dr. Andrew Gaudes, Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration, signed the agreement with the Instituto Panamericano de Alta Dirección de Empresa (IPADE Business School), located in Mexico City.

The Instituto is the graduate business school of the Universidad Panamericana. It’s classified as a world-class business school, according to the rankings of some of the most influential publications including The Financial Times, Forbes and Expansion.

IPADE promotes international dialogue between global business leaders during its Executive MBA International Week, held every October. IPADE has also earned  accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and is an active member of various international organizations.
 
“IPADE is a globally ranked business school offering an excellent graduate program in business, in state-of-the-art facilities within an historic hacienda. An agreement with IPADE opens up great opportunities for our Levene Graduate School of Business students and faculty collaboration in the years to come,” says Gaudes.
 
The partnership will promote the mobility of graduate students at the University of Regina and their Mexican peers. The agreement offers the opportunity to take credit courses for graduate students enrolled in the MBA program.

The agreement also promotes the exchange of students of the Executive MBA program who will take their international study course in Mexico City in the Spring/Summer of 2017 and have the opportunity to collaborate and learn with IPADE students.
