Humber continues to expand and enhance international partnerships and collaborations. Partnerships focus on high-level academic exchanges and provide opportunities for student and faculty exchanges and research collaborations.
Humber Celebrates 20 years with Ningbo University
In April, 70 Chinese students graduated from the Humber-Ningbo and Humber-Jimei programs. It was a special celebration as Humber College and Ningbo University celebrated the 20th anniversary of their joint partnership program.
Established in 1996, it is the college’s longest-standing international partnership. Humber entered a similar partnership with Jimei University in Xiamen in 2006.
Students live and learn in both countries, studying business practices and gaining exposure to international business and trade.
From Then Until Now
Over the past twenty years, Humber has grown the internationalization experience through ongoing staff and faculty exchanges. These cross-cultural experiences have enriched the teaching and learning of all of those who have participated in the program.
Built on a Platform of Success
Motivated by the success of the Humber-China program, Humber has continued to invest in long-standing sustainable partnerships. Today Humber has over 75 active partnerships with institutions around the globe.
Humber's Partnership with Parul, India Grows
In 2014 Humber and Parul Institute of Engineering and Technology (PIET) signed an agreement articulating pathways into Humber's business degrees. This year the partnership expanded to include pathways to programs in Applied Technology and summer programs on both Humber and Parul campuses.
Parul students participated in The Business School's Leadership Beyond Boundaries program, a 2-week program on the shores of Lake Ontario on Humber's Lakeshore campus. Humber students travelled to Gujarat, India to participate in a 4-week business and culture program for academic credit.
“I took one thousand pictures the first time I went, it was such a beautiful and inspiring place.
