After being impressed by the knowledge, networks and success in a number of overseas markets, and following discussions that initially took place during the Africa Student Recruitment Conference 2013, Matthew Hornshaw was invited to meet with senior management of the Riga Technical University in Latvia, to discuss potential working agreements. During January 2014, the university played excellent hosts and a series of meetings took place over two days.
RTU are leading the Baltic group of institutions in taking strides internationally and their vision is to be at the forefront of the internationalisation agenda in the region. At the conclusion of a number of presentations, discussions, campus and city tours and an empathy of long term strategic visions, RTU agreed that they would like to work with MGH, appointing us as leader and advisor for a number of new international markets, including a number in Africa with the potential for Asia, South America and the EU.
The first joint undertaking will be in May 2014 when Matthew joins senior staff in a tour of West Africa.
