MCI in partnership with top international universities

New cooperation agreements signed with the National University of Singapore, the Cranfield School of Management, Universiti Teknologi Petronas and Bournemouth University

Students at the MCI can spend a semester abroad at one of the MCI’s over 200 partner universities worldwide. Further leading universities were recently added to the list of partners and existing agreements extended with two of the world’s top partner universities.

Great Britain is one of the most popular destinations for Erasmus students. That makes the agreement concluded with Bournemouth University particularly attractive. Bournemouth is a coastal resort in the south of England. It is famous for its sandy beach, above-average hours of sunshine and its many visiting students from abroad. The university enjoys a fine reputation in the field of media sciences especially.

Students who choose the MCI’s second new partner university will be venturing into a more exotic environment. But Universiti Teknologi Petronas in Malaysia offers not only the experience of one of the world’s most dynamic economic areas but also an outstanding university education in technical subjects. In future, a semester there will be available to MCI students of Energy Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

Since 2012, the National University of Singapore has been an MCI partner for Bachelor students in the field of Food Technology. The agreement has now been extended to permit students enrolled in the MCI Master’s program in Bioresource & Food Engineering to spend a semester there, too. That is all the more exciting as the National University of Singapore is classed as the best university in the whole of Asia in the QS World University Ranking, and studying there has the same prestige as at an elite American or British university.

And finally, the MCI’s long-standing MBA partnership with the legendary Cranfield School of Management in England has been extended to include mobility at the levels of teaching and administration. The Cranfield School of Management is located to the north of London and regularly achieves top marks in a variety of rankings worldwide.

Katrin Bach, Head of Bioresource & Food Engineering says, “We have already had four students from the National University of Singapore at the MCI. Learning, researching and working together is also a rewarding experience for our own students. So I am delighted that cooperation is to be extended to include Master students, too.”

Susanne Lichtmannegger, Head of International Relations at the MCI, is also very pleased: “The recruitment of two new attractive partners is excellent news. The extended agreements signed with the National University of Singapore and the Cranfield School of Management are veritable milestones.”
