RAS AL-KHAIMAH, 18th February, 2016 (WAM) — The American University of Ras al-Khaimah, AURAK, and the University of Nebraska – Kearney, UNK, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, at AURAK head offices in Ras al-Khaimah.
The MoU allows students of both institutions to study in a different part of the world and experience another culture. It also allows both universities to develop joint programmes that can benefit their students.
The international relationship provides opportunities to students and faculty at both institutions, student and faculty exchange. It is expected that educational and professional exchanges will begin in the 2016 Fall term. The MoU will see outgoing AURAK students benefit from UNK’s affordable tuition fees.
With the relationship now official, the two institutions are also working to develop joint programmes within their respective Schools of Business. The possibility of offering a Degree in Tourism Management at AURAK, a programme already available at UNK, is being discussed. There are also plans to offer three-plus-two programmes, whereby students can earn a Bachelor’s Degree from one institution, and their Master’s Degree from the other.
