Filed in HBCUs on January 22, 2016
Delaware State University, the historically Black educational institution in Dover, has entered into an agreement with Jeju National University of South Korea to established a joint degree program in accounting. The bachelor’s degree program will have concentrations in business administration and management information systems.
Under the agreement, Jeju National University students will complete their first two years of study in South Korea. They will then travel to the United States and spend their next two years at Delaware State University. Upon successful completion of the bachelor’s degree program, students will receive diplomas from both educational institutions.
The goal is to enroll at least 10 students – and as many as 50 students – each year in the joint degree program.
Harry L. Williams, president of Delaware State University, stated that “we are excited with the prospect that the students from Jeju National University will be able to achieve their academic aspirations through Delaware State University’s internationally accredited College of Business.”
