Join representatives from the British Columbia Ministries of Education and Advanced Education and the British Columbia Council for International Education for a presentation on British Columbia’s active, education-related Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs). The session will open with a 15-minute presentation providing a high level overview of the MOUs. This will be followed by a 20-minute, interactive discussion with session participants on ways for institutions and schools to leverage the MOUs to advance in-market relationships. The session will close with 20 minutes for participants to meet with Ministry and BCCIE representatives to signal interest in specific MOUs.  Combined, the two Ministries maintain active, education-related MOUs with governments in China, Japan, France, Spain, Italy, and Colombia.
