Andrew Mangion, executive chairman at EC, said, “I’m confident that by tapping into EC’s experience in international recruitment and education, as well as our extensive network of in-market agents, the University of Hartford can achieve its goals and continue to move forward as a truly multicultural institution of learning.”
The University of Hartford is home to students from 63 countries, who comprise of 7% of the student body.
And students enroled in the IPP will transition into the university after meeting specific university entry requirements.
