SMU deepens China ties with new master’s partnership

August 17, 2016

Saint Mary’s University has deepened its relationship with China through a new partnership with Guangdong University of Finance. The agreement will allow Guangdong students to complete their first three years of a bachelor’s education in China, then transfer to SMU for their fourth year of study. Upon completion of this fourth year, they will be able to enter SMU's Master of Technology Entrepreneurship & Innovation program. “In recent years the Chinese government has announced numerous measures to support mass entrepreneurship and innovation,” says SMU President Robert Summerby-Murray. “This new partnership not only has close ties to those measures, but it is also Saint Mary’s way of taking a leading role in the new Nova Scotia-China strategy.” SMU
