UIBE-FIU business courses will begin in China in summer

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#FIUBusiness–FIU’s College of Business, the fourth largest public research university
in the U.S., has entered into an academic partnership with Beijing-based
University of International Business and Economics (UIBE), laying the
groundwork for a network of academic and professional alliances that
will reach from Miami to one of China’s leading business schools.

As the first step, UIBE students will be able to receive the FIU Master
of International Business or Master of Science in Finance at FIU at the
Chapman Graduate School of Business in Miami. UIBE-FIU business courses
will begin in China at UIBE’s campus in Quingdao this summer, while the
first cohort of UIBE students are expected to arrive in Miami in August

“This is the beginning of a new era of cooperation between our
institutions,” said Joanne Li, dean of FIU’s College of Business. “In
the coming years, we will work together to take the relationship to the
highest levels to benefit students, faculty, and alumni in our local and
global communities.”

As part of the three-year agreement, FIU will also have a strong brand
presence in China.

“There will be a building in the campus designated for FIU programs,”
said Dr. Wenyu Kou, Dean of UIBE Qingdao Campus, currently in
development. A building on the campus will be co-branded UIBE-FIU.

In the near future, the FIU-UIBE partnership will extend to
collaborations and exchanges in FIU’s Healthcare MBA and Ph.D. programs.
FIU and UIBE will also work closely on innovation in areas related to
programs exploring the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and
Big Data.

“UIBE is a national key university jointly-sponsored by the Ministry of
Education and the Ministry of Commerce,” said Li. “It is the top
university in China in the fields of economics, finance and management

A delegation from UIBE, led by Kou, visited FIU on January 26, 2018 and
finalized the partnership. The agreement is expected to open the door
to additional partnerships for undergraduate programs, student and
faculty exchanges, executive education, and conferences.

Founded in 1951, UIBE is a multi-disciplinary national university with
economics, management, law, literature and science as its core academic
areas of expertise.
