Posted on: March 19th, 2018 by drwenger

Dean Will Norton and Dr. Zenebe Beyene traveled to Rwanda and Ethiopia the week of March 12, setting up potential partnerships in order to offer our graduate program in Integrated Marketing Communications internationally.

The two met with Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, and Solomon Debebe, director of the Ethiopian Airlines Academy.  The meetings are part of the Meek School’s mission to increase the Ole Miss global footprint.

Dr. Beyene came to the University of Mississippi this year from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia.  His role is to promote international programs within the Meek School, in addition to teaching international journalism and special classes on conflict resolution.
