Black Colleges Looking to Become Global Universities

Delaware State University has signed an agreement to establish an MBA program at Vietnam National University in Hanoi. Faculty from Delaware State University will spend time in Hanoi teaching classes, and students in Hanoi will participate in other DSU classes online. Later this year, the program will be expanded to the VNU campus in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon.

Coppin State University in Baltimore has entered into a partnership with the Akhbar Elyom Academy in a suburb of Cairo, Egypt. The four-year Egyptian university offers degree programs in journalism, engineering, business administration, and computer science.

Coppin State faculty recently completed an eight-day seminar for journalism students in Egypt. In the future, there will be student and faculty exchanges and academic collaboration between the two universities. Fifteen students from Egypt will study at Coppin State this coming summer.
