University Chronicle | October 6, 2017 -
Leadership is an overused word, and is often misused. We like this definition.
Hosted by CMS Global and the Online Learning Consortium (OLC), attendees will get to interact and to explore partnership with leaders in online learning for Greater China such as Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China), National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong), and Shenzhen University (China).
Summit located at Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida on Nov 15th, 2017
CMS Global and the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) are proud to announce they will host the Global Quality Summit (GQS) in conjunction with the Accelerate event in Orlando Florida this November.

Chinese enrollment has grown five-fold from over 62K students a decade ago, to over 320K students in 2015/2016 according to the Institute of International Education, marking a huge increase in the importance of international students for US Universities. With a dedicated focus on advancing growth of global online education, the GQS will provide opportunities to learn, discuss and share best practices in online and digital learning. Additionally, US Universities and educational leaders will learn more about elevating their brand overseas and growing enrollment with international students. The GQS will include high level representatives from Greater China top 100 schools including, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China), National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong), and Shenzhen University (China).
