Kathryn Johnson, vice president of University Outreach and Student Affairs at Clarkson University, recently presented a talk on the comparison of education systems at a conference hosted by the Commonwealth Club of Rome, at the Hotel Savoy in Rome, Italy.
Johnson’s presentation titled “Comparative Analysis of U.S. and Commonwealth Education Systems” was part of a joint effort with Professor Aldo Patania, MBA Director at the University of Malta, Link Campus, located in Rome. During the presentation Johnson discussed and answered questions regarding the synergies and differences between the Commonwealth countries’ higher education programs and the U.S. educational system.
The University of Malta’s Rome campus is one of more than 20 global partners of Clarkson University’s Study Abroad program. The program offers students an excellent opportunity to prepare for a career in the global marketplace, while strengthening their academic background and gaining valuable skills through exposure to another country’s language and culture.
