UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN – RIVER FALLS
Founded in 1874, the University of Wisconsin – River Falls (UWRF) is a member of the prestigious University of Wisconsin System. Located in a safe and welcoming community, UWRF is a small campus of 5,958 students offering more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs.
UWRF and SSTC share similar philosophies when it comes to education. Both institutions believe in small class sizes and high quality education, that students are individuals, and that the quality of education cannot be sacrificed for growth. UWRF and SSTC have signed a Credit Transfer Agreement to collaborate on a pathway program for students to start their undergraduate education at SSTC in Singapore and then complete their undergraduate education at UWRF.
The College of Business and Economics (CBE) at UWRF is accredited by AACSB, a distinction earned by less than 5% of business schools worldwide. This accreditation requires CBE to meet rigorous standards of AACSB, which includes managing resources to achieve a vibrant and relevant mission, high-caliber teaching of quality and current curricula, faculty scholarship, and meaningful interaction between students and faculty.
Since employers look for candidates from AACSB-accredited schools, graduating from CBE at UWRF will give graduates an advantage over applicants from non-AACSB accredited schools.
BTEC is part of Pearson, the world’s largest education services company, and is the UK’s largest awarding organization, offering academic and vocational qualifications in the UK and internationally.
The vocational qualification includes BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) from entry level to Higher National Diplomas (HNDs). BTECs are recognized in more than 80 countries worldwide, built to accommodate the needs of employers and allows learners who wish to further their studies a progression to university.
As a Pearson-approved BTEC international education center, SSTC has satisfied a series of strict quality assurance standards with regards to systems and processes, teaching staff credentials, facilities and premises and the student support services. SSTC offers the BTEC HND Diplomas in Business, Hospitality Management, and Travel and Tourism Management.
