Last June, SLU adjunct professor Joshua Bienstock and China Program Manager Jiajing “Jojo” Xu visited Southwest University of Political Law and Science (SWUPL) in Chongqing, China. Joshua taught courses in negotiation and collective bargaining, and Jojo held a number of preliminary information sessions with freshman and sophomore students majoring in labor and business fields who were interested in studying at SLU.
The initiative paid off handsomely, as SWUPL and SLU have now established an education exchange memorandum of understanding. SWUPL will offer $1,500 scholarships to students who choose to attend SLU’s undergraduate and graduate certificate programs.
Last week, Jojo organized and co-hosted several online presentations and information sessions to educate SWUPL’s students about how to apply to study at SLU. SWUPL’s academic director for labor relations and business law, Fu Hongyong, and associate dean of the business school, Li Yujie (shown above), also participated. Jojo reports that the students showed great enthusiasm for the program and gave good feedback.
