Posted on: Aug 13, 2019

Concordia University of Edmonton was honoured to host Chief Education Consul, Mr. Jun Guo, from the Chinese Consulate General in Vancouver, as he presented three CUE students in the unique dual degrees Bachelor of Management program, with the scholarship award certificates in a well-attended ceremony on August 6, 2019.

These scholarships, which are equivalent to 32,000 Canadian dollars each, will support our students in their two years of study in China, covering full tuition, accommodation, living allowance, and medical insurance.

CUE is particularly proud of its students being awarded three of the five available full scholarships, highlighting the level of merit and potential of our students! 

These students will form the first cohort of the Dual Degrees Program in Management. This program allows them to take their first and fourth year courses at Concordia University of Edmonton, and their second and third year courses at Beijing Foreign Studies University (1+2+1). Upon graduation, they will receive degrees from both universities.

Congratulations to our scholarship recipients:
