The Georgian College and the Language School of the International Language Academy of Canada (ILAC) have teamed up to create Georgian @ ILAC.
The ad adheres to a new policy in Canada created by the Ontario government in December 2019, which allows public colleges such as Georgian College to build innovative and entrepreneurial partnerships with private colleges.
The partnership will primarily seek to provide international students with a high-quality education and training that will prepare them for the Ontario workforce.
Georgian @ ILAC will launch three programs in Toronto by January 2021
Beginning in 2021, Georgian @ ILAC is known to launch three programs at the ILAC campus in downtown Toronto.
The initial programs will be the Business Diploma program, the Global Business Management Graduate Certificate and the Project Management Graduate Certificate.
Reaffirming the development, Dr MaryLin West-Moines, President and CEO of Georgian College, said: “Georgian is excited to enter into this new partnership with a respected private college and for the first time expand our presence and quality programs in Toronto.
“This new partnership will also allow Georgians to invest in our existing seven campuses in central Ontario, while the proceeds from the partnership will support improvements designed to meet the needs of all our students and local communities.”
Thanks to this partnership, the Georgian language hopes that its experience in higher education will be effectively combined with ILAC’s reputation as a leading language school in Toronto.
ILAC believes students will benefit from “quality Georgian program”
Working together, Georgian and ILAC will be able to use their combined international recruitment experience to attract a diversified student group from countries around the world.
Jonathan Colbert, CEO of ILAC, said: “We are excited to enter into a private partnership of the State College with the Georgian College. Georgian @ ILAC students will benefit from a quality Georgian program while studying in downtown Toronto and enjoying ILAC’s renowned international student culture focused on diversity.
“It is also a natural opportunity to expand for students our programs in English and Pathways, which can now remain in the ILAC family, continuing to progress in their studies.”
