Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School and Poland’s Cracow School of Business at the Cracow University of Economics signed an agreement formalizing their cooperation and collaboration in the areas of research, faculty and student exchange, and international seminars.

The signing ceremony took place at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2008, at 73 Tremont St., Boston, 13th floor.

Cracow University of Economics was founded in 1925. It offers undergraduate and post-graduate programs in Economics and International Relations, Finance, Management and Commodity Sciences and has partnerships with universities throughout Europe

President David J. Sargent will meet with the rector of Cracow University of Economics, Professor Ryszard Borowiecki; Professor Janusz Teczke, vice-rector for Scientific Research and International Cooperation; and Dr. Piotr Buta, director of the School of Entrepreneurship and Management for the signing ceremony.

“We see Poland as an important bridge between the established markets of North America and Western Europe and the emerging markets of Eastern Europe.” said Sawyer Business School Dean William J. O’Neill, Jr. “This collaboration is of significant value, for the faculty of both schools, and for the preparation of our students to become successful leaders in global business.”

“Two highly rated institutions working together guarantees success,” said Borowiecki. “Cracow University of Economics is one of the top business schools in Poland.” Cracow University of Economics provides education at all levels: Bachelor’s studies, Master’s studies, Ph.D. studies, post-graduate and MBA studies. The University comprises four faculties and teaches a total of 21,000 students.

This April, the first group of Suffolk students will travel to the Cracow University of Economics for a week in Cracow and Warsaw. They will attend lectures at the Cracow School of Business, visit local business and attend a reception hosted by the U.S. Ambassador to Poland, Mr. Victor Ashe.
