About the Course
Connecting with the World: International Relations at Higher Education Institutions is a pilot course coordinated by the Institute of International Education that offers Myanmar higher education professionals and Ministry officials key perspectives on how to develop and manage an international office. The 20-week course provides comprehensive instruction and mentor guidance for participants on topics such as hosting a foreign delegation, facilitating student and faculty exchange, developing institutional agreements, and the basic role of the international office within a university.
