New CWEIC Strategic Partner Coventry University Group to open Africa Hub in Rwanda
New CWEIC Strategic Partner, Coventry University Group, is opening a new overseas hub in Rwanda to support its links in Sub-Saharan Africa and help extend its corporate functions across the world.
The hub will open in Kigali to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the capital in June.
It is part of the university’s plan to develop a sustainable network of multi-faceted overseas offices. The ambition is to have a presence near to its stakeholders in key regions and follows the success of the Singapore and Dubai hubs.
The aim is to provide organisations and individuals throughout the world with regional access to the growing academic research and commercial expertise that exists within all areas of the Coventry University Group.
The Africa Hub will serve as a base for Coventry University Group in the region with the aim of enabling new relationships as well as strengthening established ones.
The Africa Hub will promote the university group’s research, globalisation, enterprise and innovation work throughout the region through the development of closer relationships with embassies, government bodies, research institutes, universities and private sector entities.
Samantha Cohen, Chief Executive of CWEIC commented:
“CWEIC is delighted to welcome the Coventry University Group as a Strategic Partner. This new approach to Higher Education – bringing industry and education closer together to offer graduates an active pipeline to employment – is to be applauded.”
