UNIVERSITY CEMENTS ENTENTE CORDIALE

A major strategic alliance between the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside and a prestigious new ‘grande ecole’ in France will bring up to 60 full-time management students annually to the UK for a two-year study period.

Professor Rosina Jones has been working with Mme Viviane Bourdin, the international director of the newly formed ESCEM based in Poitiers and Tours, in order to finalise the link-up, which will commence next year.

The alliance will also include close co-operation at masters level. Professor Mike Jackson, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Management, has already visited Poitiers and will return in the spring to cement the partnership and deliver a professorial address to an audience of academic staff and students.
