Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe signed an agreement with Hong Kong University’s (HKU) SPACE Community College on Tuesday, March 17, to collaborate on 2+2 programs in business. It is the first international 2+2 partnership for SIUE’s School of Business (SOB).

Students who graduate from HKU SPACE Community College with an associate’s degree in business can transfer to SIUE to complete years three and four of study with a degree in a business field such as business administration, accountancy, computer management and information systems, economics or finance. 

The degrees awarded will reflect the partnership between HKU and SIUE. The first students are expected to arrive at SIUE in fall 2016.
