About the CETYS and CityU partnershipIn 2005, the private, not-for-profit universities signed an agreement to offer CityU programs in Baja California, Mexico to serve CETYS students. Founded in 1961 by local businesses and leaders, CETYS provides quality education alternatives to Baja California. The nationally recognized university contributes to the development of the border economy, operating campuses in Mexicali, Ensenada and Tijuana. Each year, about 6,000 students pursue CETYS credit-bearing and continuing education courses in business, engineering, law and behavioral sciences. CETYS Rector Dr. Fernando Leon Garcia and CityU President Lee Gorsuch renewed the CityU/CETYS partnership agreement to continue to offer CityU programs in Baja California in June 2010.
