From June 18 to June 21, the International Department of Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies (LBTU) embarked on a strategic visit to Azerbaijan, aiming to broaden its international collaborations and strengthen ties with key educational and business stakeholders in the region.

Throughout the week, LBTU representatives conducted four significant business meetings with various student recruitment agencies. These meetings provided invaluable insights into the unique dynamics of the Caucasus market, helping LBTU to tailor its student recruitment strategies to better attract and support Azerbaijani students. The discussions were fruitful, laying the groundwork for enhanced cooperation and student exchange programs, ensuring that Azerbaijani students have greater access to LBTU's diverse academic offerings.

In addition to the recruitment agencies, LBTU's delegation met with representatives from ADA University, one of Azerbaijan's premier institutions of higher learning. This meeting was a pivotal moment for both universities, as they explored potential areas of collaboration. Discussions centered around joint research projects, faculty exchange programs, and the development of dual degree offerings. The positive dialogue between LBTU and ADA University signals a promising future for deeper academic partnerships.

The visit also included a formal meeting with the Embassy of Latvia in Azerbaijan. This engagement underscored the importance of diplomatic support in fostering international educational collaborations.

The LBTU International Department's visit to Azerbaijan was a resounding success, achieving its goals of strengthening existing relationships and forging new ones. The knowledge gained and connections made during this visit will undoubtedly enhance LBTU's efforts to expand its international presence and offer more opportunities for students from Azerbaijan. The university looks forward to building on these foundations and advancing its mission of providing world-class education on a global scale.
