After the official signing of the MOU with AL-Ahliyya Amman University (Jordan), we were happy to invite Prof. Sari Hamdan, the President of Al-Ahliyya Amman University, and Dr. Anas Ratib ALSoud, Assistant to the President, to Istanbul Medipol University. After a short tour, Prof. Sari Hamdan and Dr. Anas Ratib ALSoud appreciated the IMU campuses and the way academic life is organised.
The program of the visit included several meetings with IMU representatives. The visit started with the welcoming meeting with the Rector Representative, Prof. Dr. Ömer Ceran. Presentations of the School of Engineering, headed by the Dean, Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Aslan, Health Management Department, organised by the Head of the Department, Prof. Dr. Yeter Demir Uslu, and the School of Business, initiated by the Dean, Prof. Dr. Gökhan Silahtaroğlu resulted in fruitful discussions.
Our guests and the IMU Deans see future collaboration opportunities in organising joint educational programs at all the levels of education, student and academic exchanges, winter/summer language schools, and various cultural events. After reaching several agreements, the detailed action plan of the first cooperation steps will be worked out. Representatives of both Universities are sure that this first meeting in Istanbul is the begging of long-lasting beneficial academic contacts.
