In January 2011, the SKEMA Business School, one of the top business schools in France with satellite campuses in China and Morocco, opened its first US campus at NC State on Centennial Campus. Registration and other student information for these 135 students was coordinated by Registration and Records, the Global Training Initiative, and the Poole College of Management.
The Interactive Distance Education Alliance program known as Ag*Idea is administered through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Department of Registration & Records, and the Great Plains agricultural program. In 2011-2012, NC State recorded 55 participants (includes NC State and non-NC State student participation).
The University of North Carolina General Administration provides access to education through this distance education program, which includes course offerings from 16 universities in the UNC system. Each term, EMAS assists with course scheduling, student records, and reporting, as needed.
