Orientation for this year’s Academic and Cultural Program offered by Berkeley College to students from Guizhou University of Finance and Economics (GUFE) in China began with excitement on Friday, July 26, 2019, in White Plains, NY, where the students will reside during their four-week stay.  On their first day, the students viewed poster presentations by Berkeley College First-Year Honors program students on the theme of “Unspoken Barriers to Social Justice.”

The Academic and Culture Program for students from GUFE is part of Berkeley College’s Global Alliance. The academic program comprises four courses – accounting, economics, finance, and management, taught in English. The cultural and sightseeing part of the program includes visits to places such as Wall Street, One World Trade Tower, the United Nations, the Statue of Liberty and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is the fourth year Berkeley has hosted students from China during the summer.
