Up to 50 Chinese accounting students have a chance to learn in Red Deer because of a new agreement signed by Red Deer College and a college in China.

The new co-operative agreement between RDC and Henan Trade and Industry Vocational College in Zhengzhou, China, will see the students start to arrive in September 2014.

Donald School of Business dean Darcy Mykytyshyn said the collaboration is a tremendous opportunity for the college.

“The idea for this partnership is rooted in a strong relationship that our faculty have been nurturing with the Canada China Business Association through our collaboration with them in our Global Business course offered in our Bachelor of Business Administration degree,” said Mykytyshyn in a release.

While in Red Deer, the students will be enrolled in the business administration diploma program, with the option to stay and complete the bachelor of business administration degree at RDC.

Brad Donaldson, RDC’s vice-president for academics, said it is exciting to see the business school grow in this way.
