UC is seeing significant growth in its population of undergraduates from China and is now leading international recruitment trends in emerging markets: Vietnam and Iraq.

With international admissions on the rise, UC’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business is seeing the largest demand from the Chinese student population.

Lawrence Gales, associate professor of management and academic director of international programs in the Lindner College of Business, says the increase can be attributed to educational partnerships with China and demand for western-style business education programs, particularly in finance.

“This fall, we’re expecting 24 graduate students to enter our finance one-plus-one master’s degree partnerships with Xiamen University, a top university in China, and our hope is to grow other graduate programs through partnerships with elite Chinese institutions.”
