Georgian@ILAC will launch three programs as early as January 2021, including a business diploma program, a global business management graduate certificate and a project management graduate certificate.
“Georgian is excited to enter into this new partnership with an esteemed private college and for the first time”
The partnership was made possible by Ontario government policy that gives public colleges like Georgian more flexibility to create innovative and entrepreneurial partnerships with private colleges to provide primarily international students with high-quality education and training.
“Georgian is excited to enter into this new partnership with an esteemed private college and for the first time, expand our presence and quality programs into Toronto,” said MaryLynn West-Moynes, Georgian’s president and CEO.
“This new partnership will also allow Georgian to invest in our existing seven campuses across central Ontario, with partnership revenue supporting enhancements designed to meet the needs of all our students and local communities,” added West-Moynes.
By working together, Georgian and ILAC said that they will leverage their combined international student recruitment expertise to attract a diversified student population from countries around the world.
“We are delighted to enter into a Public College Private Partnership with Georgian College,” said Jonathan Kolber, ILAC’s CEO.
Students of Georgian@ILAC will benefit from Georgian’s “quality curriculum”, while studying in downtown Toronto and “enjoying ILAC’s renowned international student culture focused on diversity”, according to Kolber.
“This is also a natural extension opportunity for students in our English language and Pathways programs, who can now stay in the ILAC family as they continue to progress in their studies,” he added.
