Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University has signed an agreement with the China-Britain Finance Club to collaborate on a range of activities including industrial forums and summits, as well as developing courses and training.
CBFC is a non-profit organisation established by influential financial leaders, entrepreneurs and economists in both China and Britain. As a global financial club, it is dedicated to studying international economics and monetary policies along with developing financial practices and research.
Ai Xin, President of CBFC, said: “I believe that XJTLU’s unique educational model represents a new dawn in Chinese education. We hope to combine our business practices with this modern university to the benefit of its students. This collaboration is also a good opportunity for our entrepreneurs to rethink the ways they do things and interact with students.”
Professor Xi Youmin, Executive President of XJTLU, said the collaboration will bring a lot of benefits for XJTLU students and staff including the opportunity to host guest lectures from CBFC members and develop relevant courses in conjunction with International Business School Suzhou at XJTLU.
He also hopes that CBFC will promote the University’s impact through their events and extensive network of contacts.
Professor Xi said of the collaboration: “It will bring XJTLU academic staff and students into contact with practical research issues, rooting their study in real-world practices and stimulating their thinking to solve challenges that China and the world are facing.”
At the same time as signing the agreement with XJTUL, CBFC also signed a cooperation agreement with 88 Initiative, which provides Cambridge-based education to Chinese entrepreneurs, executives and professionals. In July, XJTLU signed an agreement with 88 Initiative to co-offer a three-day master class for Chinese senior executives.
