China Cooperative Academic Programs
Welcome to the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. The mission of our China program is to provide students with a rigorous understanding of economic and finance literacy, develop future leaders in business, and promote global vision by expanding Utah State University’s educational opportunities across international borders.
The Department of Economics and Finance has approximately 900 Chinese students working on a USU economics degree at two different institutions in mainland China: Beijing Institute of Technology and Northeast Dianli University in Jilin City.
The degree's focus is on fundamental micro and macroeconomics training, managerial and leadership skills, and navigation of the global economy through focused training in the areas of international economics and trade.
Many students in this program transfer to Logan and add vitality to the USU Logan campus. Further, this program continues to provide the opportunity for Chinese visiting scholars to spend time in Logan and for USU faculty to visit and teach in China.
Courses are primarily delivered face-to-face with a USU lead professor and a local instructor. USU lead professors are responsible for course content and instructional pedagogy. Class format and content are organized and disseminated to students through local instructors who are affiliated with partner institutions. Local instructors are responsible for learning facilitation through on-site face-to-face delivery of course content. This method enhances the breadth of academic engagement between lead professors and local instructors and meets the Chinese Ministry of Education requirement that the primary model of instruction be through face-to-face contact between students and instructors. The language of instruction for all courses is English.
