Visit from Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE), Sichuan, China to DCU
A delegation of six Finance professors led by Dean Professor Qiaoyun Zhang, School of Finance, SWUFE, visited DCU on 21st May 2014. The University is one of the top universities in China in the Finance discipline and is one of the leading universities participating in the national 211 and 985 projects. The University is also considered as the ‘Bank of Finance Talents in China’.
Following an earlier visit to SWUFE by representatives of DCUBS, the purpose of the visit was to engage in further discussions towards the development of strategic collaborations between SWUFE and DCUBS. The delegation held a series of meetings with the Executive Dean Dr. Anne Sinnott and representatives from DCUBS. A wide range of possible initiatives were discussed, including the 3+2 joint programme, Study Aboard (postgraduate and undergraduate), staff exchange and research collaborations. The delegation also met with Chinese students studying at DCUBS to hear their perspectives on study, work and life experiences in DCU and Ireland in general.
The discussions identified significant areas of mutual interest and specific initiatives for collaboration to be developed in the coming months.
