10 years of UQAM in China

Maud-Andrée Lefebvre, Acting Director of the Québec Government Office in Shanghai, and professor Prosper Bernard from UQAM, are seen here surrounded by the graduates of the class of 2012.

The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and the China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT) are celebrating 10 years of partnership.

For a decade, the two universities have teamed up to offer a double degree MBA program to Chinese students. More than 150 students have graduated from the program since 2004.

A ceremony was held on March 1 in Xuzhou, China, to highlight the event.

For this occasion, Maud-Andrée Lefebvre, Acting Director of the Québec Government Office in Shanghai, was invited to speak to the graduating class of 2012. “This cooperation between two high-level institutions is a wonderful example of what the Québec government wants to support and encourage in the field of education. In its International Policy, National Research and Innovation Policy and External Trade Development Plan, the Québec government intends to increase international exchanges in research and education and China is a priority partner in this regard," said Lefebvre.

With over 35,000 students, the China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT) is one of the largest in China.
