In 2017, the Irish Universities Association (IUA) and the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) entered into a partnership to further develop co- operation between the higher education system in China and in Ireland.
The IUA and CEAIE have jointly organised an 8 week summer program including both study and internship experiences in China, to help Irish university students to develop 21st century professional skills and provide substantive work experience to jump-start their career in today’s competitive job market.
Finn Connolly, ICBA Student Council Chair, is delighted and honoured to have been selected for this program.
He says that ‘The opportunity to study in Beijing Normal University and work in a Chinese company is a wonderful opportunity to see the realities of not only Chinese culture but Chinese business culture. This will in no doubt be of great benefit to my future career and I look forward to the weeks ahead.’
The ICBA wishes Finn every success!
