The Confucius institute is a partnership between SUNY’s Office of Global Affairs (OGA), Nassau Community College and Nanjing University School of Finance and Economics/Hanban University. The mission of the Confucius Institute for Business (CIB) is to provide quality educational programming that integrates Chinese business, language, and culture. CIB’s programming has received international recognition in China, the U.S., and internationally.
CIB offers many benefits to NCC’s goals and mission: resources to offer programs for students, faculty, staff, and the community; international opportunities for students, et al; and support for special events that would be well received in the college and community. Events this past academic year have included a Chinese Business Series with guest speakers that are leaders in business lecturing on current U.S. – China business opportunities, as well as Chinese Cultural events such as the Chinese New Year Celebration.
