Albertus Magnus College, Skyline University College Launch Pathway Program

Empowering Global Academic Journeys

New Haven, Conn, Sharjah, UAE, May 21, 2024 Albertus Magnus College is proud to announce its latest collaboration with  Acadeum (USA) and Skyline University College (UAE), introducing a dynamic 2+2 Pathway Program aimed at empowering  students to excel in a global academic journey.  

The newly launched Pathway Program is coordinated through Acadeum, the largest course sharing network in higher  education, and offers students the opportunity to start their degree in the UAE or other countries, and seamlessly transition to  the United States to complete their studies. In the traditional four-year bachelor’s degree model, this innovative program  enables students to complete their initial two years at Skyline, followed by two years to earn their degree at Albertus, the most  diverse Catholic college in New England.  

"The Dominican tradition that informs our education at Albertus Magnus College dates back more than eight centuries and has  global reach," said Albertus President, Marc M. Camille, Ed.D. "Our liberal arts-based education supported by experiential  learning prepares Albertus graduates for immediate and long-term career success, not just in Connecticut and our region, but  across the globe. Over its nearly one-hundred-year history, Albertus has a tradition of welcoming and serving well  international students, and this agreement is an exciting next chapter."  

Prof. Mohammad Inairat, Vice Chancellor of Skyline University College, emphasized the importance of a solid foundation, stating, "I am proud to witness the launch of our innovative 2+2 Pathway Program with Albertus Magnus College. This  partnership epitomizes our commitment to excellence in education, empowering students to pursue their academic goals  while embracing diverse perspectives. It reflects our dedication to shaping future leaders prepared for the global landscape."  

During the first two years at Skyline University College, students will receive a comprehensive foundation in their chosen field  of study, benefitting from the institution's state-of-the-art facilities and supportive learning environment. These formative  years are instrumental in fostering essential skills, acquiring knowledge, and establishing a robust academic and personal  preparation.  

Upon successful completion and fulfillment of the two-year program and student visa-related procedures, Skyline students will  have a streamlined pathway to continue their academic pursuits at Albertus Magnus. The final two years at Albertus will  enable students to study in New Haven, a culturally diverse city renowned for its culture and international educational  environment, culminating in the attainment of their baccalaureate degree from Albertus. The Pathway Program offers students  a unique opportunity to experience the best of both worlds. With flexible academic pathways and affordable tuition, students  can explore global education opportunities while preparing for a successful future.
