Department of Management Information Systems Joint Education Program with Hubei University, China

Students will have an opportunity to obtain a dual degree from the University of Memphis as well as Hubei University under a cooperative agreement between the University of Memphis and Hubei University. The academic programs of participants will be enhanced through the study of courses and/or exposure to perspectives not available on their home campus.

The joint education program between the two universities will be focused in the areas of Management Information Systems (MIS), Communication and Asian Studies, and International Trade (ASIT). Undergraduate students at Hubei University will enroll in a 2+2 Bachelor degree program which will require them to complete two years at Hubei University and two years at the University of Memphis.  Dr. Lloyd Brooks, MIS Department Chair, indicates that this program provides the department with an entry into China--a country where IT applications are expanding rapidly. Rajiv Grover, Dean of the Fogelman College of Business & Economics, welcomed the agreement, stating that, "It is important to provide students with experiences that will raise their understanding of the impacts, and implications, of globalization, and in so doing broaden their horizons as to what opportunities exist in a global society."

Students admitted to the University of Memphis will have completed all general education courses as required by the University of Memphis for a degree to be awarded. Students who complete the course work and meet the academic requirements of the University of Memphis will be awarded a Bachelor’s degree by the University of Memphis. The University of Memphis will provide suggestions and recommendations on courses offered by Hubei University as part of the Joint Education Program. Dr. Chen Zhang, Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems, will serve as advisor for Hubei University students who earn a BBA/MIS degree.
