“CIBT Group has the established infrastructure to capture and combine these two lucrative markets by offering international students a one-stop solution. CIBT Education Group Inc. is a leading western accredited education provider of higher learning which adds credibility to the English training market, complemented by 19 years of operational experience in China, 109 years in Canada, and a complete infrastructure of campuses, offices and teaching technology platform located in 18 countries. In addition, our newly formed Global Education Alliance division is forging academic partnerships with various elite primary, secondary schools and universities in western countries. Our KGIC English Center will enable international students to develop their language proficiency prior to transferring their studies to CIBT Group’s alliance schools. Plans are in place to license additional KGIC Education Centers in other countries. Our strategy is to own and operate a substantial percentage of overseas campuses under the brand ‘ KGIC English Academy’, while licensing arrangements will be established with overseas investors to independently own and operate KGIC Education Centers.”
