MSVU partners with Jinshan College for joint degree, teaching opportunities

May 5, 2016

Mount Saint Vincent University has signed an agreement with Jinshan College in China that will allow Chinese students to complete the final year of a four-year tourism degree at MSVU, and allow MSVU professors to teach in China. MSVU Business, Tourism, and Hospitality Management Professor Michael Whalen says that when the program is operating at full capacity, it will see MSVU professors teaching 17 courses each year in China. The courses will be primarily taught online with a minimum of two weeks taught in-person in China. The program reportedly aims to bolster tourism to the province and to replace falling Canadian student numbers. MSVU | CBC
