TIEC President and CEO Robin Lerner accompanied team members representing 14 TIEC-affiliated universities to Saudi Arabia in January. The purpose of the trip was to meet with administrators and faculty at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU) in preparation for the curriculum review and design of academic programs for the university.

TIEC assembled an academic team to work in collaboration across universities and university systems to closely examine the academic programs offered by PMU’s colleges of arts and sciences, business administration, computer engineering and science, engineering, and law.

Designs for new academic programs in architecture, graphic design, software engineering, and a doctoral program in business administration are similarly underway.
