Trip to China and Taiwan deepens School’s collaboration with academic & corporate partners

Extending opportunities to collaborate with Fulbright Foundation Taiwan, Shanghai University, Renmin University and other top institutions.

In early September, Arkadiusz Mironko, Executive Director of Graduate Programs, and Steve Chen, Director for International Relations, traveled to Taiwan and China to meet with top academic institutions, corporate partners, and alumni and prospective students. The visits served to establish new and deepen existing collaborations with partners in China and Taiwan.

Mr. Mironko met with Fulbright Foundation Taiwan to discuss and establish collaboration. He had a fruitful discussion with Dr. Vocke, Executive Director of the Foundation, agreeing on a common framework of extending educational opportunities at UCR School of Business to students from Taiwan.

In Shanghai, they visited a number of top universities, which included Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics, Shanghai Lixin University of Commerce, Shanghai University and Renmin University.

They attended the MBA Fairs in Taipei and Shanghai to meet students interested in continuing their studies in the US, particularly California. Throughout the trip they also met with several alumni and current students of UCR AGSM, as well as prospective students.  The discussions led to an agreement on strengthening AGSM alumni communities in Taipei and Shanghai which are growing more vibrant.

A portion of the trip was also spent visiting with industry leaders and corporate partners of the school, further strengthening and growing the international reach of UCR School of Business.
