Athena Global Education and LEARN Global Institute of Myanmar have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide internationally accredited courses and degree programs for students in Myanmar.

This follows Athena Global Education’s recent partnership with Asia Trading Consultants known popularly as Asiatrac, to help Athena establish and grow a sustainable business in East Asia – particularly, countries of the ASEAN Community, one the world’s most rapidly growing economic areas.

LEARN will deliver Athena’s courses viz. Master of Business Administration and Doctorate of Business Administration programs and professional certification courses provided by Athena and awarded by renowned universities viz. Universidad Catolica De Murcia (UCAM), Spain, Guglielmo Marconi University (GMU), Italy and Bellevue University, Nebraska, USA.

LEARN Global Institute has a good track record of handling the delivery of online courses from abroad and is currently managing a MSc. Fintech program for Manchester Metropolitan University in UK. They have also been successful in developing the local market for corporate training courses.

LEARN has presented a business plan which envisages making an immediate start on brand building and promotion of Athena’s programs. They will work closely with the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce (UMFCCI), other Myanmar-based international Chambers of Commerce and individual organisations to promote Athena’s short courses and expect to recruit the first students for these to be delivered in January.

“Talks are on with other countries in South East Asia to build partnerships that would provide students a holistic learning experience,” says Mr Firoz Thairinil, CEO, Athena Global Education.
