International Co-op Program
Students from 53 countries come to Sullivan’s Graduate School
Excitement continues to grow at Sullivan University’s Graduate School as the International Co-op program approaches its second year. There are currently 150 students in the program who are working at prestigious companies such as Kindred Healthcare, Humana, and Jewish Hospital. And, when an unaccredited school closed for several federal violations, more than 100 displaced international graduate students applied for entry into Sullivan’s Graduate School for the Spring 2011 quarter.
The growing program has brought a diverse international community to Louisville. Sullivan students now represent Bangladesh, Jordan, Nepal, Israel, Egypt, Pakistan, Iran, China, India, Senegal, Ghana, Tanzania, South Korea, France, and Norway.
Sullivan University’s newly established Ph.D. program in Management has aroused significant interest among international students. With the opportunity to work full-time in a curriculum practicum training internship while studying, now students who complete an MBA elsewhere will have the opportunity to come to Sullivan’s main campus in Louisville and work full-time while studying for their doctoral degree. Once again, Sullivan University’s focus on career preparedness and education has led it into a unique market niche in the international marketplace.
Recently, Asian Correspondent, a subsidiary of the Associated Press, ranked Sullivan University’s MBA Program with a concentration in Healthcare Management as one of the top ten Healthcare Administration Programs in the nation alongside academic giants such as Johns Hopkins, Ohio State University, and the University of Michigan to name a few. It is likely that such exposure in Southeast Asia will have widespread appeal and pave the way for new students to join campus in the upcoming months.
Sullivan has always been the leader in career-centered education; the success of the International co-op program is a reflection of the team and family spirit of Sullivan University.
