How CBIE’s International Collaboration Missions Get Results!

View Recording

CBIE launched our International Collaboration Mission Series in October 2016, with a mission to Hanoi and HCMC Vietnam. This webinar will review the main components of that mission and highlight the key results of participation in the short and long term. Tune in to hear testimonials from participants and have an opportunity to ask questions about our upcoming 12 month plan for future missions.

Upon completion of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Identify the major benefits and the tangible results of participating in collaboration missions;
  • List details of the postsecondary education market and political context in Vietnam;
  • Leverage this market information to increase institutional productivity in the region.
