Degree Exchange Agreements and Partnership with Institutions Abroad

Agreements and Partnership with Institutions Abroad at the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation.

Authoritative Guidelines for Internationalย Cooperativeย Agreement Developmentย 

Institutional agreements

Our Global Office is delighted to discuss any potential study abroad or exchange agreements to obtain a dual or triple degree program, minimum 1 semester, maximum 3 semesters with institutions from around the world.

Exchange agreements

The Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation have student exchange agreements with more than 17 institutions around the world. Most of our exchange agreements, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) are subject-specific, though we operate a small number of institutional agreements.

Bringing Universities Together

These global partnerships deliver impactful collaborative research, innovative programs for students, opportunities for staff development and mobility, and enhanced student skills and employability.

The University’s International Strategic Partnerships with the Swiss Alps University and Business School; The Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation and their 17 global partner universities – which include collaborations in research and teaching, joint degrees, dual-degree, triple-degree, staff and student exchange across all subject areas – have been highlighted as examples of best practices within the sector.

The innovative degrees include dual or triple-degree degree programs, through which students can qualify for degrees at the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation with 17 global partner universities. Two interesting models of collaboration include a โ€˜flying facultyโ€™ arrangement with partner Universities and a Dual Degree with the global partner universities. The portfolio of degrees offered through partnership work includes work-based bachelor’s, and master’s, degrees delivered by further education institutes.

If your institution is interested in setting up a new exchange with one or more of our Schools, The Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation, please contact the Global Office.

We are here to help you if you are interested in working with us, contact us via email.

Study abroad agreements

The Global Office manages a number of study abroad agreements with partner institutions and providers worldwide. These agreements allow international students to attend the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation on a Study Abroad program for a semester or full academic year. Please contact the Global Office if you would like to enquire about establishing a study abroad agreement, MOU. We are pleased to sign our mutual interest of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Agreement.

1. Introduction

An international Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a document that outlines cooperation between the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation, and an institution of higher education or organization outside of Switzerland. Such a document may also be referred to as an agreement or memorandum of cooperation. Faculty interested in developing a partnership with an institution abroad should discuss the type of cooperation they would like to initiate with the potential partner university with their department chair, their Dean, and staff in the office of International Learning Opportunities. It may also be helpful to review the list of the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundationโ€™s current partner universities to determine whether the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation may already have an agreement with the institution of interest or another institution in the same city or province.

2. Administrative Process Checklist

โ€ข Cooperation is typically initiated by developing a general cooperation MOU stating that the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation and the partner university agree to cooperate with specifics to be outlined in additional agreements. It is important to avoid making commitments on behalf of the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation prior to discussing these commitments with relevant university officials as indicated above. We will view the instructions for completing international cooperative agreements together.

โ€ข Once specific types of cooperation have been negotiated or determined, separate agreements are developed. Either partner university may initiate the process with a draft agreement that is then negotiated between the officials responsible for MOU development at the respective institutions.

โ€ข Bilateral exchange agreements must have an articulation of the host university courses with Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation equivalents to assist students with advising and planning.

โ€ข Finalized agreements are prepared in duplicate, so both partner institutions may keep an agreement with original signatures on file.

โ€ข At Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation, international MOUs are reviewed or prepared by the Director of International Learning Opportunitiesย who forward them to the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs for signature. Only Memorandum of Understanding, MOUs signed by the Provost are considered to be valid university agreements. Some universities, especially in Asia and European countries, prefer to have the Presidentโ€™s signature, and therefore, some Memorandum of Understanding, MOUs are signed by the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundationโ€™s President.

โ€ข The Provost has each Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reviewed by the University Legal Counsel prior to signing two originals. The two documents with original signatures are then mailed to the partner university where they are signed by the appropriate official. The partner university then returns one of the originals to the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation. This process may also be initiated by the partner university.

โ€ข The original agreement is kept on file in the Provost Office with copies mailed to the relevant department or College as well as in International Learning Opportunities (ILO).

3.ย Forย Faculty to Consider in Developing University Partnerships

โ€ข What is the specific type of cooperation of interest: joint research, faculty exchanges, bilateral student exchanges, faculty-led education abroad for groups of students from the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation, hosting partner university students in custom-designed group training programs at the Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, and Erasmus Edu Foundation (through the Intensive English Program in the English Department), dual-degree and/or triple-degree program development, etc.

โ€ข Can both partner institutions accommodate the needs of students and faculty from the other, if proposing activities involving students and faculty being exchanged? For example, consider language requirements/limitations, housing, cost of living/tuition, compatibility of curricula, safety/health considerations, etc.

โ€ข Do the academic disciplines offered at the potential partner university match those at Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation? Should the cooperation involve the entire university or a specific academic discipline only?

โ€ข Are there any safety and health considerations for our faculty and students with respect to the location of the partner university?

โ€ข Should this MOU have a specific time frame or can it be open-ended? Generally, agreements are only valid for 3~5 years and must be renewed.

โ€ข If there is no bilateral student exchange agreement with a partner university, Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation CAN host partner university students as non-degree seeking students, but students will be expected to pay nonresident tuition

If a bilateral student exchange is proposed, consider the following:

  • Language of instruction and intensive language/culture programs available for Nestle University of Switzerland, Swiss Graduate School of Business School, Erasmus Edu Foundation students; English language skills of partner university students
  • Interest by Boise State students (for most of our exchanges, more students from our partner universities are prepared to come to us than vice versa)
  • Students pay tuition at their home institutions and exchange places, so the numbers of students exchanged must balance over a number of years
  • Housing and student support services are offered at the partner university
  • Opportunities for cultural immersion

If you are interested in joining our degree partnership as a regional university, institute,
