Geneva Business School partners with InterActive to join eLearning revolution
The Swiss business school joins forces with the UK-based online education company to launch a suite of two online postgraduate programmes
Geneva Business School (GBS) and the UK-based online education company InterActive today announced a strategic partnership, paving the way for the development and delivery of GBS's first online postgraduate degrees to a global student market. The agreement marks a significant academic and commercial collaboration for both institutions as GBS aims to expand international reach by utilising InterActive's e-learning resources and international distribution network in over 150 countries.
Marking the agreement, GBS and InterActive are launching two programmes: online MBA and MSc Finance. Both programmes are going to be offered with a range of four specialisations, covering areas such as Private Banking, International Taxation, Islamic Finance, International Relations and Luxury Brand Management. Delivered via InterActive's e-learning platform, the course will be offered to students and professionals across key target regions where InterActive already has established solid operations and a large student base.
With more than 100 courses and 12,000 students worldwide, InterActive is a recruitment partner for academic institutions and works alongside universities in the UK, US and Europe to make their courses available to global markets. The company is part of Global University Systems, an international education group which also encompasses the London School of Business and Finance (LSBF), the Graduate International School of Management and Administration (GISMA) and seven other education institutions.
Vitaly Klopot, Managing Director at InterActive, commented: "We are extremely proud to work with Geneva Business School in a strategic alliance that will benefit both institutions. Whilst InterActive has a powerful online learning platform and global recruitment channels, GBS is part of a group with over 85 years of history in teaching and research at both local and international levels. We work alongside institutions that share our vision of converging education and technology, so we are confident that this partnership will help us in our mission of empowering our partners in the global education market."
The Academic Dean of the Geneva Business School, Dr. Brahim Gacem, quoted: "GBS is extremely excited to be partnering with InterActive, a company who we have seen has a proven track record in online delivery on a global scale. With the expertise that GBS has in delivering education in recognised Swiss fields, this new venture will no open up phenomenal possibilities for students worldwide."
With the full flexibility of an award-winning e-learning platform, the GBS MBA and MSc Finance will be available from February. GBS's programmes are developed alongside some of Switzerland's biggest businesses, ensuring relevance in today's business world.
