Welcome to BU

Beijing Normal University Zhuhai (BNUZ)

BU welcomes students from BNUZ

We work closely with BNUZ to give students on a number of undergraduate finance, management and business courses the opportunity to complete their studies at BU. In an increasingly global business environment, having the opportunity to study in an international community of academics and students is invaluable in helping you develop that global perspective and gain a better understanding of how business is conducted across borders and elsewhere in the world.

I would like to offer a warm welcome to all BNUZ students who are planning to continue their studies at Bournemouth University. A powerful academic research culture keeps the Bournemouth University Business School relevant, informs course development and benefits the business community locally, nationally and internationally. Our consultancy to business has aided the profitability and market position of many of the organisations with which we work. We look forward to you being part of this exceptional community.

Dr Lucy Lu, Associate Dean Global Engagement (Faculty of Management)
