The School of Business has long been dedicated to strengthening the internationalization of the faculty as well as enhancing academic and student exchanges with business schools in western universities. Equal importance has been attached to the cooperation and exchanges with universities in developing countries, providing opportunities for both faculty and students to study abroad and understand different cultures.
The School has established partnership with over 60 renowned universities around the world (including those in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR and Taiwan). It runs the UC-ECUST Joint MBA Program on a long-term basis and has entered cooperation with the University of Bologna in Italy, ICN Business School in France, Uppsala University in Sweden, Moscow State Institute of International Relations, Universidad La Salle in Mexico and Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil to form an education association which runs the MIEX international master’s program in management. The ECUST-ESCEM Joint MBA Program cohosted by ECUST and ESCEM in France has received the AACSB and EQUIS accreditations. Besides, the school is also conducting a long-term exchange mechanism for undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students in cooperation with several partner universities.
Currently, the majority of our international undergraduate students come from countries in Southeast Asia and Africa. Among international postgraduate students, the number of those from European countries is on the rise. At present, the School offers all-English education programs at three levels: International MBA (professional master’s degree program), academic master’s degree program in business administration and bachelor’s degree program in international economics and trade. We have an increasingly diverse enrollment of international students from over 50 countries.
The school is actively involved in international academic exchanges. In the past decade, related activities have been conducted in cooperation with higher education institutions and research institutes all over the world.
As for student exchange, we follow a student-centered strategy, striving to expand cooperation to cover more disciplines and diversify the forms. In so doing, we hope to create more channels for student exchanges and offer them more convenience.
To highlight the school’s international perspective and facilitate the communication between students from different countries, the school carries forward our traditional international focus and stresses the access to world-renowned courses. We will continue to follow an innovative path and press ahead with the internationalization initiative.
