Welcome Meeting for International Master Students at WISE and SOE

In the beginning of the new semester, the Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics (WISE) and School of Economics (SOE) welcomed the new batch of international master students. On the afternoon of September 13th, international students with faculty gathered for a warm welcome meeting. 

In 2009, WISE founded the International Master Program, combining an English-taught study environment by overseas graduated Chinese professors, focusing on modern theories and knowledge on economics and finance, and using high quality teaching methods coupled with a wide range of international academic exchanges and cooperation. From this year onwards, WISE and SOE will cooperate in opening four majors for international students: Finance (oriented to Applied Finance), Financial Engineering, Western Economics (oriented to Business Economics), and International Business, which will further enhance the development of international education of WISE.

This program has attracted an excellent group of international students to study at WISE. This year, the number of new international students has increased to 18 students, originating from different countries around the world, such as United States, New Zealand, Italy, Ghana, Philippine, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Mongolia, Zimbabwe, Russia, and Uzbekistan. These students of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds form a diversified and vigorous group that brings fresh atmosphere to WISE and the body of Chinese students.

To ease the feelings of loneliness and helplessness commonly felt by international students who come to China for the first time, a welcome meeting was held a few days after the registration. Professor Linlin Niu, as the director of the International Master Program, gave a brief introduction on the programs and selected faculty who teach the program this academic year.  Then following the custom of the Chinese mid-autumn festival, Professor Linlin Niu gave the international students moon cakes prepared by WISE staff for them to  experience the unique traditional in China. Afterwards, all participants of the meeting, including Professor Zhiyuan Lin from the Department of Finance, Macroeconomics Research Center, School of Economics, and Professor Brett Graham, Professor Lei Meng  and Professor Marcel Bluhm from WISE, were asked to introduce themselves and encouraged to interact with each other.

At the end of the meeting, a group photo was taken outside the Economics building.
