JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Arkansas State University recently signed an agreement with an Indonesian University in hopes of developing programs to broaden students’ experiences.

A-State Chancellor Tim Hudson signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Manado, a public university located in the province of North Sulawesi in Indonesia, during a campus ceremony.

UNIMA has three campus locations with more than 32,000 students.

Hudson believes the university’s growth, programs and leadership are reasons it is important to enter into this agreement.

"At Arkansas State we are committed to providing our students with an education that includes an understanding of the wider world," Hudson said.  "Indonesia is one of the most powerful and important countries in the world, and certainly our students need to know more about it.  We're honored to enter into this initial agreement and we look forward to developing many programs with our new colleagues from Indonesia."

The University of Manado wants to send students to A-State to study English in the English Learning Academy.

The two universities are also working to develop a 2+2 degree program partnership in business administration.

Students participating in the program would study the first two years in Indonesia, then transfer to A-State to complete their undergraduate degree.
