"Shanxi University of Finance and Economics", is located in Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province.

The Chinese delegation was interested in the enrollment of their students in BSU undergraduate programs after preparatory Russian language training. To achieve this goal, possible models for organizing training at the BSU preparatory faculty were considered: such as face-to-face and distance learning, sending Russian language teachers to train students of Shangxi University of Finance and Economics directly in China, as well as organizing a joint preparatory faculty.
The delegation of the Chinese university expressed special interest in cooperation with BSU in the development of dual degree programs, academic mobility of students and teachers, as well as joint scientific and educational events.
After the meeting, Vice-Rector for BSU International Relation Mikhail Kuz’min gave the delegation a detailed tour of the university, including a demonstration of classrooms, library reading rooms, as well as TV and radio studio of BSU Media Center.
The parties agreed to sign a cooperation agreement and an agreement on joint training of students in Russian language for further enrollment in BSU in the nearest future.
