Please join us for an informative presentation and networking opportunity with a strategic consortium of Mexican higher education institutions. We will be joined by colleagues from the Consulate General of Mexico, Vancouver. The delegation is being led by Juan Navarro, Director, CMXpartnerships.
The Consortium of Mexican Universities* (CUMex) involves thirty (30) higher level institutions distinguished for serving more than 93% of enrolment of advanced technical degrees, associate degrees and bachelor degrees of high quality programs in Mexico; these are the programs that are recognized by the outlines and processes of the National Evaluation and Certification System. Two members from the Consortium will be in attendance.
Joining this delegation will be representation from the Universidad Panamericana, one of the top ranking universities in Mexico comprising four campuses, with over 12,000 students in 33 degree programs. One delegate will be in attendance.
We are also delighted to welcome Consul General of Mexico, Berenice Díaz Ceballos to this event. Consul General Díaz Ceballos will offer introductory comments and provide some broader context for recent trends and developments in the education sector in Mexico and how best the International Education sector in BC can engage.
The delegation has a range of interests in pursuing collaboration and partnership with BC institutions, including:
- Promotion of internationalization between BC and CUMex institutions
- Development joint English/Spanish programs for Canadian and Mexican universities
- Promotion of cultural exchanges through academic fairs in Canadian and Mexican universities.
- Consolidation of CUMex institutions as an international destination for advanced studies
- Forging international agreements for cooperation and research on global issues
The Canada-Mexico academic relationship is vibrant and multifaceted; it is underpinned by over 400 inter-institutional agreements between Canadian and Mexican education institutions, as well as significant collaboration between Canadian provinces and territories and Mexican states. The relationship is characterized by deep people-to-people ties, rich cultural connections and growing trade and investment. This commitment is evidenced by a recent bilateral meeting where President Enrique Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau committed to strengthen research, mobility and institutional collaborations at all levels. The province of BC has identified Mexico as a key partner for sustained and productive International Education collaboration. BCCIE will play a vital role in facilitating BC’s International Education engagement to the mutual benefit of BC and Mexico over the ensuing years.

Developing and implementing a digital marketing strategy for your institution can be a confusing and overwhelming endeavor. We all know simply having a website and being active on social media isn’t enough. Even if you currently have a strategy in place, are you confident it’s effective?
ICEF is here to eliminate the guesswork and ensure you leave the conference with a customized digital marketing plan you can begin implementing as soon as you arrive back to your school. How do you know where you are going if you don’t know where you are? We will walk you through a self-assessment worksheet to clearly define where you should devote your energies and resources. You will then be able to customize a plan based on your specific resources and pain points.

About the Agent Focus
The new ICEF Central Asia Focus gives international educators and service providers the opportunity to meet top-quality student recruitment agents from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Mongolia and Northern China at one focussed event.
Central Asia currently makes up 2% of global outbound student mobility and is quickly increasing its importance in the international student market. A steady 8% economic growth over the last decade and entering the Bologna Process in 2010 paved the way for Kazakhstan to expand its educational infrastructure and encourage students to go abroad.
Because parents and government play such a crucial role in Central Asian student's decision making process, it is essential for education institutions to establish personal contacts and networks with agents, service providers and government bodies. This, and a selection of market intelligence seminars, networking events, and business meetings make the ICEF Central Asia Focus the perfect opportunity to establish firm links and partnerships with the region's best student recruitment professionals.
All agents at this event are carefully screened, providing multiple references from business partners, records of student activity, and business ethics. Each agent is individually selected by the ICEF Agent Team through personal contact to ensure a focussed and productive experience.
The ICEF Central Asia Focus is scheduled conveniently just before the ICEF Moscow Workshop to give participants a chance to effectively target their marketing efforts in Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus. Spaces are limited - do not miss out on your chance to be part of this inaugural event in Almaty!

About this Workshop
The ICEF Moscow Workshop is the region’s most renowned international education networking event.
