CMS Global Forms Partnership with 106 Chinese Universities Consortium Led by Shenzhen University to Expand Access to Affordable US Online Higher Education for Chinese Learners.  

Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. (November 11, 2016) – CMS Global, a leader in online international higher education, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Shenzhen University and UOOC Online (University Open Online Courses) to offer Chinese learners with opportunities to achieve a high quality accredited US education at a fraction of the cost compared to studying abroad.

This partnership plays a critical role in realizing the Transnational Educational priority identified by the 2010-2020 Mid and Long Term plan by the People’s Republic of China and most recently highlighted by Premier Li Keqiang.

East-West Mobility is a new track designed for first and second year undergraduate students who may desire to complete the last two years of study to earn their bachelor degree in the US. This track will be introduced at Shenzhen University in spring 2017, and additional tracks will be offered at the 106 university partners’ campuses thereafter.

Students in this program will enroll into courses where credits will be recognized by multiple US accredited universities and partner Chinese universities.  Students enrolled in East-West Mobility will have courses taught both online and on campus. “Our combined on-campus and online methodology provides flexibility and customization that fits the demand of the growing, college bound population of learners in China” said Charlie Nguyen, CEO and Founder of CMS Global.

Furthermore, some of the courses will be taught 100% in English reinforcing the importance of developing English skills required for admission into US universities. East-West Mobility is designed to help Chinese students reach their US educational goals in the most time and cost effective manner by providing access to proven US based general education courses.

“In China, Internet usage and higher education are on the rise. More and more Chinese universities want to promote education information and internationalization though the Internet,” said CEO Kai Yao of UOOC.  “UOOC Online especially hopes to cooperate with CMS Global to build a bridge between China and the United States for higher education, and promote the education internationalization together.”

“Founded by Shenzhen University in 2013, UOOC Union is a national association of local colleges and universities, dedicated to promoting co-building and sharing the curriculum with a non-profit model,” said President Li Qingquan of Shenzhen University. “Union will focus on strengthening international cooperation in the future and accessing overseas high-quality educational resources.”

“At CMS Global, we work hard to expand access of high-quality US academic programs to China and provide critical in-country support services to ensure a successful educational journey for our students,” said CEO Charlie Nguyen. “We are excited about this partnership and the opportunities it provides for Chinese learners to advance their education and careers.”
