NKU signed an agreement with NUB in August
September 13, 2021 —HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY- Northern Kentucky University has signed a partnership with Nahda University in Beni-Suef (NUB) in Egypt. The memorandum of understanding, signed on August 2nd, allows NKU to offer an online MBA degree to eligible students enrolled in NUB and will also provide NUB undergraduates a pathway to earn a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree through NKU.
Under the agreement, students will enroll at NUB for two to three years in a pre-approved, accelerated series of courses that mirror the lower level BSBA courses offered by NKU. Once completed, students will be able to apply, transfer and enroll at NKU for the completion of the BSBA degree.
