Inbound 2+2 programs
SolBridge has a number of inbound 2+2 relationships with quality institutions in China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and elsewhere. Institutions who teach in English or who educate students in another language but whose students have strong English skills are welcome to join our programs. The SolBridge success for creating a multi-national environment using an American business curriculum with a focus on business in Asia provides an excellent choice for students wishing to work in Asia or be employed by companies with interests in Asia. The first one or two years of an institution’s Bachelor’s program are articulated with the SolBridge curriculum and students know from the outset, what courses are transferrable.
Outbound 2+2 programs
SolBridge currently offers a 2+2 outbound program at the Georgia Institute of Technology to its students. A few select additional programs are also being negotiated at this time. These programs are especially attractive to students who wish to earn a degree in the United States, but who prefer to stay closer to home initially or to save study costs by studying at SolBridge. The student’s family can enjoy substantial cost savings. SolBridge welcomes collaboration inquiries from institutions that offer business programs, especially in areas not currently offered at SolBridge.
