ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — Winthrop University prides itself on international partnerships that bring the global experience to students of all ages and backgrounds.

The most recent example of this is a signed agreement between Winthrop and Liuzhou City, China, that has brought 31 professionals to campus, where they will earn a Master of Business Administration degree. These students, who began classes in August, are full-time employees of various departments and agencies in the Liuzhou City government, including accountants, quality control engineers, museum curators and police officers.

The students went through a competitive process to be a part of the Winthrop program, with Liuzhou City agreeing to pay for their education as well as their salaries back home, making a major investment in their professional development. Liuzhou City has operated this program for the past five years, but this is the first time Winthrop has been one of its partners.

Participants also completed an intensive five-month language training program in Beijing before embarking for Rock Hill.

The partnership will have many educational benefits for both Winthrop and the city of Rock Hill. The group of experienced professionals from Liuzhou City will make a significant contribution to the multicultural atmosphere in Winthrop's classes and to increasing the cultural knowledge of Winthrop students. The group also will be available for many types of outreach and enrichment programs, including participating in other professional development activities with local business and government entities.
