Chinese Doctor of International Business Administration students attend Birkbeck summer school
On Monday 21 May, a group of 20 Doctor of International Business Administration students from the South Western University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) in China visited Birkbeck for a one-day lecture series on the European Debt Crisis.
The summer school was organised as part of the innovative partnership signed between the Department of Management and the School of International Business at SWUFE last June.
Dr Linda Trenberth, Head of the Department of Management at Birkbeck, said: “We are delighted to welcome the SWUFE students to Birkbeck today. We have put together a programme which draws on the expertise on the European Crisis that exists across our School, and which we hope will provide our visitors with new insights and perspectives.”
This visit follows on from other successful collaborations, including visits by Birkbeck academics to China to collaborate on SWUFE programmes and deliver short courses, and the establishment of a dual degree which enables SWUFE students to study at Birkbeck for the second year of their Master’s degree, completing a Department of Management Master’s programme within this time.
Jue Wang, from SWUFE, said: “Already both institutions are seeing the benefits from this partnership. We are delighted to have been able to bring this group of students to Birkbeck today, and to have welcomed colleagues from Birkbeck at SWUFE. We look forward to continuing to work together.”
