Advantages of the Field and Highlights of the Program
School of International Trade and Economics (SITE) is one of the best schools at UIBE and it is one of the earliest schools in China that started the international education program. SITE has many senior professors who are experts on policies and practices in international transportation and logistics of China, as well as many junior professors who got their Ph.D. degrees from overseas universities. The faculty perfectly combines theories with practice, Chinese characteristics with international standardized-knowledge, as well as traditional lecturing with modern teaching philosophy.
One of the highlights of the SITE international education is the curricula setting that covers both internationalized field knowledge and practices in China. While teaching whole fundamentals in economics, international transportation and logistics, the program pays more attention to the application and practices of these theories. Specifically, a series of local courses are set for international students, such as General Outline of China, Economics Policy in China, Business Environment in China, Chinese Culture, Linguistics of Chinese Mandarin, etc. This ensures that international students in China acquire globally-standardized field knowledge as in developed countries, and at the same time, get a deep understanding of the social, historical, cultural and economical development in China, which will equip them with greater advantages in the job markets of China as well as their home countries.
Another highlight of the SITE international education is the diversified teaching methods tailoring to international students from all over the world. They are varied in educational background and Chinese Mandarin literacy, and the admission standard and learning style are also quite different from local students. In consideration of this, most courses, exclusive to international students, are taught by senior teachers with rich experience and young doctors with overseas education background who are selected specifically by SITE. It is well-received with the students.
