The University of Northampton is pleased to announce that Northampton Business School has signed a memorandum of understanding with Beijing Normal University Zhuhuai Campus (BNUZ) on Wednesday 3 October 2013.
The two universities have been working together for three years, after the student exchange programmes began in 2011. Over the last two years, around 10 students from BNUZ have visited Northampton Business School for their final year top up programme, and this is expected to rise this coming year as the two universities continue to work closely together.
Dr Ian Brooks, Executive Dean of Northampton Business School and Delia Heneghan, Director of Advancement and International Relations were present at the signing along with Professor Yuping LAN, Assistant to Dean of International Business Faculty, BNUZ.
Dr Brooks commented: “It was a delight to meet with the esteemed visitors from Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai Campus and discuss a range of transnational educational opportunities, which will enable student exchanges and other collaborations. We enjoy a close working relationship and receive a number of academically strong students from their university each year. There is now the opportunity to expand our relationship into postgraduate, collaborative provision drawing on Northampton Business School’s expertise.”
Along with Professor Yuping LAN, Dr Wei DAI, Vice President of Student Affairs and Dr Chunyan GAN, Director of Office of International Affairs, BNUZ was also present at the signing.
