A PRESTIGIOUS NATIONAL KEY UNIVERSITY PROMULGATED BY THE GOVERNMENT SINCE 1960
ONE OF THE FIRST LEADING CHINESE UNIVERSITIES FUNDED UNDER THE PROJECT 211
Welcome to UIBE
The University of International Business and Economics (UIBE), situated in the northeast of Beijing, was founded with a mission to prepare China's international trade talents in 1951. In 1960, UIBE gained its reputation to be listed among a group of 64 prestigious national key universities and received high level of support from the central government. UIBE graduates have played a leading role in China's policy to open up the country to the world. In the 1990s, graduates from UIBE comprised one-half of China MOFCOM's (Ministry of Commerce) total workforce, including its 196 commercial offices around the world. In 1996, UIBE became one of the first leading Chinese universities included under the "Project 211", an ambitious government program aimed at turning about 100 Chinese universities into exceptionally high-quality academic institutions in the 21st century.
UIBE pursues to be an outstanding national university and a prestigious international university. With more than 60 years of development, UIBE has transformed into a multidisciplinary university specialized in the fields of economics, management, liberal arts and law and gained its strength in the subjects such as international trade, law (international law), finance, business management and foreign languages (business languages). At present, UIBE offers nearly 50 majors to overseas students in bachelor, master and doctoral programs.
Ranked among the top universities in China for international education, UIBE has a total enrollment of over 16,000 full-time students, of which more than 3,100 are international students from 126 countries. UIBE graduates are popularly recognized by the employers for their professionalism, high-level skills, strong linguistic ability, flexibility and international outlook. UIBE graduates have been employed in international trading firms, big banks, multinational corporations and commercial institutions stationed abroad. In the past few decades, UIBE has been proud of the performance of its graduates and their many contributions to linking China with global economies.
As one of the leading Chinese universities for the study of international trade and economics, UIBE welcomes all international outstanding candidates to apply to its high-quality International Undergraduate Programs (IUPs).
UIBE offers International Undergraduate Programs leading to bachelor degrees in Economics, and Management in several majors including Economics, International Trade, Finance, Business Administration, Marketing and International Politics. These programs are designed to provide students with an opportunity to study general education courses and explore an academic field in depth.

Built upon UIBEs long tradition of producing global-ready graduates, the IUPs will provide international undergraduates with the same preparedness that current UIBE graduates possess. To meet arising global challenges, the IUPs will provide students with rich knowledge, high-level skills and responsibility and ability to integrate knowledge from their major fields and other disciplinary aspects to solve complex real world problems.

2. Integrative Learning Requirements-Capstone Project(4 credits)
The Capstone Project connects the general education with real world experience. It focuses on Chinese studies and consists of two requirements- a course and a related field trip. Different routes might be offered, for example, route 1 focuses on the origin of the Chinese civilization along the rivers, route 2 on peoples and cultures in mid-west China and route 3 on urbanization and rural development in an increasingly open society in the suburbs of Beijing. Students should form interdisciplinary teams to apply what they have learned in the general education courses to a real challenge emanating from the changes in the society.

Instructors will certify that the papers are written for their classes and indicate whether they have since been revised. In submitting the three papers, students should write a reflective essay about their writing to introduce the portfolios. The papers must demonstrate mastery of each of the key writing skillsthe ability to report on observation, to analyze complex information, to provide interpretation, to use document sources, and to articulate and support a thesis-driven argument.
