Collaborations and international affairs

The Mercator School of Management belongs to a global network of around 50 partner universities with which it maintains formal collaboration agreements. Most of these universities are based in Europe (28 out of 50) and are also partnered with the MSM in the ERASMUS programme. Eight partner universities are in Asia; twelve are in the United States. The MSM also has one partner university in South America and one in Australia. Its European collaborators include the SGH Warsaw School of Economics, the Université Paris-Sorbonne, Paris IV and Sabancı University in Istanbul. In the United States, the MSM works with the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and the University of California, Riverside, among others. Its East Asian partners include Sophia University in Tokyo and the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), with which the School has collaborated for more than a decade, alongside more recent agreements, such as with Chung-Ang University in Seoul. For more than five years, the MSM has jointly organised a very successful, international seminar for doctoral researchers (IDOC) with the University of North Carolina, Charlotte (UNCC).
