Marshall unveils international degree

Students will spend one full academic year at each of the three universities and may choose one of the schools to spend their fourth year. The program will be available to students who are applying for fall admission but not current students.HKUST was named the top university in Asia by QS Asian University Rankings, and Bocconi University is internationally renowned for its business and economics programs. In general, the program will focus on world business and communication in multiple languages.According to John Matsusaka, vice dean for faculty and academic affairs at Marshall, the WBB program is the first of its kind.“There really is no one in the world doing anything like this, where you can go to three places and get three degrees in the three major economic and cultural zones of the world,” he said.Matsusaka said the idea for the program was born out of a 2009 conversation about the future of higher education with a friend who worked at Bocconi. Each presented the idea to their own universities, and eventually, the two institutions came together to find an Asian partner.Once all three schools were onboard, representatives from the universities participated in a series of meetings to outline the details of the program, including admission guidelines, scholarship awards and the process of transferring credits. All the schools have a similar “Western-style” of teaching, according to Matsusaka, which will allow for a seamless transition from school to school for students.“Students will get three degrees, but no school is compromising,” Matsusaka said. “There is some flexibility, but the entire curriculum will fit together. Part of the reason we wanted to do this is that we wanted to experiment.”Students who apply to enter the program before their freshman year must be simultaneously accepted to all three universities, which will jointly decide who is admitted to the program.“There’s a big difference between treading about another country, visiting as a tourist, and actually living there,” Matsusaka said. “There is no substitute for being immersed in the culture, but this experience is not for every student. It’s for a student who’s a bit adventurous, forward-looking and ambitious.”last_img read more

Massive win for B’dos Pride

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC):A dominant Barbados Pride flexed their muscle as they blitzed Combined Campuses and Colleges by 200 runs on Wednesday night, to remain unbeaten in the Regional Super50.Behind Test batsman Roston Chase’s top score of 76, the hosts stormed to 294 all out off their 50 overs at Kensington Oval before left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn (three for 25) spun a web around Marooners to send them tumbling for a meagre 94 all out off 36.2 overs.The victory was the fourth straight for Pride, propelling them to 17 points and to a healthy lead in Group B, while the defeat for Marooners was their second, leaving them on eight points.Opting to bat first, Pride’s innings revolved around Chase’s enterprise, but opener Kraigg Brathwaite stroked 44, left-hander Jonathan Carter, 40, and opener Anthony Alleyne, 39, to lend support.Brathwaite and Alleyne provided the foundation with an 86-run, first wicket stand which carried Pride near the halfway stage of the innings.When they batted, Marooners slumped to 17 for three in the 11th over and never really recovered despite Mohan’s top score of 29 and Amir Jangoo’s 23.Captain and fast bowler Jason Holder (2-14) started the rot when he removed Kyle Corbin for one to a leg-side catch by wicketkeeper Hope at four for one in the fourth over and then had Aaron Jones caught at first slip by Benn in the sixth over (0) with two runs added.Captain Jamal Smith then edged fast bowler Kemar Roach to Benn at slip in the 11th over to fall for six, to leave Marooners in turmoil.last_img read more
