“We’re fortunate to have a partner with an exceptional track record in higher education and global engagement, who demonstrates the ability and the commitment to meet the high standards that we set for our programs and our services,” Kennedy said.

“The agreement is also driven by our entrepreneurial spirit, as we work to identify global partnership opportunities that support our core operations in Niagara.”

Under the partnership, Niagara College students will be able to pursue study abroad, co-op placements, exchanges and international field studies within the GUS network of 42 international locations.

There will also be pathways from NC diploma programs to GUS degrees, and cooperative global business and educational development programs; and Technical and Vocational Education and Training and English as a Subsequent Language project possibilities globally.

“We are honoured to have been chosen by a prestigious institution such as Niagara College Canada to work together,” said Ehsan Safdari, managing director at TSoM.

“We are equally committed to support students with professional education that will help them in their careers. We believe this will be a great opportunity to provide students with expanded access to Niagara College’s top-quality programs.”

The four Niagara College programs to be delivered exclusively in downtown Toronto at GUS’s TSoM from Spring 2021 include Business General, and graduate certificate programs in International Business Management, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Human Resources Management.

“We are excited to see TSoM engage in this innovative and entrepreneurial partnership,” said Cyndi McLeod, GUS Canada CEO.
