The College of Business and Public Policy Goes to China

In early December 2017, a UAA CBPP delegation visited two of our partner institutions in Changchun, China. The main goal was to sign an agreement for a partnership with Jilin University of Finance and Economics (JUFE), for JUFE students to complete a BA Economics degree at UAA.
