On the afternoon of Oct. 24th, David Wilkinson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Macquarie University (MQU), led a delegation to visit SUFE. The delegation was received by Jiang Chuanhai, President of SUFE.
Jiang extended a warm welcome to the delegation and briefly introduced SUFE: its size, disciplines and features, as well as its nice performance on the ESI and QS lists. He also showed great expectation of further cooperation between MQU and SUFE in terms of student exchange, scientific research cooperation and communication, holding advanced academic forums, and so on. After showing gratitude for SUFE’s warm welcome, Mr. Wilkinson introduced the Business School of MQU, highlighting its basic information, preponderant discipline projects and its experience in curriculum development and cooperation. He hoped both parties could improve the cooperative relationship and take an active role in helping development and collaboration in the China-Australia Academic Exchange on Finance Development next month.
