Full-time Instructor Geography / Economics

LNU-MSU College of International Business

About the university:

LNU-MSU College of International Business is located in the coastal city of Dalian in Liaoning Province of northeast China. It is an educational cooperation between Missouri State University (MSU) of the United States and Liaoning Normal University (LNU) of China. All courses are taught in English so students must demonstrate sufficient language competency for admission. The college offers an American designed curriculum that leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in General Business through Missouri State University - College of Business.
The student body of roughly 700 students comes from several countries. The College of International Business compares to “highly selective” schools in the US, as it only admits those who score in the top few percent of the Chinese National College Entrance Exam and similarly achieving students.
