Columbus, OH (June 9, 2017)

Franklin University is proud to announce the formal signing of a global educational partnership with Universidad Cuauhtémoc in Aguascalientes, Mexico.  The agreement, signed this week, provides UCA students with the opportunity to earn Franklin’s Global Master of Business Administration (GMBA) degree without having to leave the country.

The signing of the agreement is the culmination of intensive collaboration throughout the year in which Franklin University assessed and endorsed UCA’s guidelines of quality and professionalization.
