The University of San Diego‘s School of Business is collaborating with a Mexican institution to offer a USD graduate degree outside of the United States for the first time.
Graduate students at Centro de Enseñanza Técnica Y Superior can earn the USD Master of Science in Global Leadership degree, coupled with an MBA from CETYS at its campus in Mexicali.
“Offering our MSGL degree at CETYS’ state-of-the-art campus in Mexicali recognizes the importance of economic and social integration along the U.S.-Mexico border,” said USD President James T. Harris III. “USD School of Business students and CETYS students have previously worked together on multiple assignments and consulting projects with a cross-border perspective, and this new collaboration represents the next step in USD’s globalization of its educational initiatives.”
Dr. Fernando León García, president of CETYS, said the new dual degree will help train future leaders in the Cali-Baja region.
“It’s an honor and pleasure to be able to offer such an innovative and unique program with a leader institution like USD,” he said. “With our USD alliance, CETYS moves forward and takes to another level the university’s commitment to be globally competitive.”
All USD MSGL courses will be delivered across the border in English by USD faculty beginning in July 2019.
CETYS is a private university founded in 1961 with campuses in Mexicali, Ensenada and Tijuana. It is the first higher education institution outside the United States to achieve accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, which also accredits USD.
