Partnership degree programme awarded National First-Class status
Henley Business School and the University of Reading’s joint degree accounting programme has been awarded first-class status by the Ministry of Education in China.
The BA Accounting (BIT) programme, which is taught in China and affiliated to the Accounting Department, School of Management and Economics (SME) at the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), has been awarded the National First-Class Undergraduate Development Programme award.
The development of first-class undergraduate programmes, referred to as the Double Ten Thousand Plan in China, is an important initiative of the Ministry of Education to revitalise the undergraduate education, to enhance the talent cultivation capacity of the universities, and to achieve sustainable development of Chinese higher education.
The collaboration between Henley, Reading and the SME promotes the students’ comprehensive development, access to international exchanges, and a more sustained development of Chinese higher education.
Paul Inman, Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) at the University of Reading said:
“This award is fantastic news for our students, and further strengthens our ties with the BIT.
“We are proud of the work we are doing in Beijing, and the opportunities this partnership continues to provide for our current and future students.”
