Regis University and Universidad del Turabo (UT), a member of the Ana G. Méndez University System (AGMUS), have partnered to create the first, one of its kind Dual Language Online Master’s Programs offering two masters’ degrees — one in Business Administration and the other in Organizational Leadership. The initial group of online students will kick off their programs with classes beginning on August 28, 2011. According to the 2010 Census, the U.S. Hispanic population grew by 43 percent in the last decade, which has in turn increased the need for bilingual professionals. The Dual Language Online Master’s Programs were created to meet this employment opportunity tide. “We are finding more and more that everything from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies have an increased demand for bilingual professionals. We wanted to create a program that prepares working professionals for a competitive job market. To achieve this, we designed courses that fit their busy schedules while providing an opportunity to improve their language skills,” said Luis Zayas, Vice President for National and International Affairs of the Ana G. Méndez University System and President of AGMUS Ventures, Inc. an organization created by Regis University and AGMUS to promote dual language university education.
