Significant Strategic Opportunity for a partnership with leading private technical university in Latvia

One of the leading private universities in Latvia, and the only private technical university.

The university is looking to reposition itself for the international market, and as a result is looking for a UK university who would be interested in developing a strategic partnership that would cover the development of dual degree programmes (both franchised and mobility based) joint research, faculty and curriculum development and student and staff mobility.  The university is also looking to change the focus of its Management and Economic faculty from traditional management and economics to a modern western business school focusing on areas such as entrepreneurship and management.

The university is well known regionally for the quality of its Logistics, Engineering (Telecommunications and Electronics) and Computing teaching and research and is in the process of opening new robotics labs and is also to become part of the Latvian Government and Accenture sponsored Project 3000 initiative, which is focused on developing new joint provision in computer science.
