from the press release:
“Sporting Goods Business graduates of Fleming College in Ontario, Canada can now complete a degree in their field at Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) in Ireland with just two additional years of study.
A new ‘2+2’ pathway between the two institutions allows eligible Sporting Goods Business graduates seamless entry into the third year of LIT’s Honours Bachelor of Arts in Business Studies with Sport Management program. Students can finish their diploma and degree in just four years.
“We’re excited to provide Sporting Goods Business students the opportunity to continue their studies after graduating from Fleming College,” said Charlie McGee, Coordinator of the Sporting Goods Business program at Fleming College. “This agreement will provide students the ability to work towards a university degree at LIT while gaining valuable international life experience. The combination of college and university education plus global experience can assist graduates with their career goal of working and progressing in the evolving international sporting goods industry.”
“The arrangement that Limerick Institute of Technology and Fleming College have brokered is a win-win deal for both institutions. More importantly, though, it is a win for the students in our programs,” said Clíona Campbell, LIT Director of International Affairs. “To the students here on the Sutherland Campus, it offers an opportunity for degree completion in Business Studies with Sports Management, which is good. What is better again is that we can offer exposure to the European business environment by presenting that opportunity for degree completion in Ireland. In an increasingly global business environment, it is hugely beneficial for graduates to broaden their horizons in this way. Naturally, our teaching and learning environment at home in Ireland benefits from that influx of new perspectives that the Fleming College alumni will bring to LIT.””
