The University of International Business and Economics (UIBE), situated in the northeast of Beijing, was founded in 1951. UIBE is a national key university jointly-sponsored by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Commerce, and is the top university in the fields of economics and business.
UIBE was founded in 1951 as the Beijing institute of Foreign Trade and provided education and training for government officials responsible for China’s economic and international business administration. In 1997 UIBE was put on the list of ‘Project 211’ universities, a government program aimed at turning about 100 Chinese universities into exceptionally world-renowned academic institutions.
The campus, nicknamed, ‘Hui Garden’ consists of seven buildings of either residential or academic nature. A brand new library was built in 2008 and notable features include a Chinese garden, a bird cage and a pond dubbed the ‘Black Sea’.
A variety of accommodation options are available that aim to encourage students to relieve any anxiety and discomfort attached to studying and living abroad. These options are broken down to on-campus residences that are designed and furnished to the standard of a 2 or 3 star hotel and provide favourable prices and high standard service to students. Alternatively, off-campus accommodation involves a list of recommended hotels for those who prefer to live away from the central campus.
