In the context of the OBREAL GLOBAL South America and Africa Chapters, as well as the MoU that OBREAL GLOBAL has with the Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA), OBREAL GLOBAL organized with the support of AUGM and IUCEA, a virtual meeting to discuss issues of strategic and imminent importance for the East African regional and higher education sector, as it further integrates in the context of the East African Economic Community (EAC) – notably that of regional accreditation of study programmes.
