The Kemmy Business School (KBS) at the University of Limerick recently signed a partnership agreement with the School of Labor and Human Resources (SLHR) at Renmin University of China. The agreement facilitates faculty and student exchange as well as research collaboration.
Located in Beijing, Renmin University is the most prestigious university in the humanities and social sciences in China, ranking first in China across a range of disciplines. Established in 1950, it was the first university to be established in the newly founded People’s Republic of China and has produced many influential figures in China’s reform and development. The School of Labor and Human Resources was established in 1983 and is exclusively responsible for running the national doctoral programmes for Labor Economics and Human Resource Management.
The signing of the agreement with the School of Labor and Human Resources at Renmin is a significant addition to the Kemmy Business School’s growing number of Asian partners. Last year the KBS signed agreements with the Hong Kong Baptist University School of Business and Ewha School of Business, Seoul, South Korea. The KBS also recently launched a scholarship fund to encourage undergraduate business studies students to study for a semester at one of the KBS’s Asian partners. The initiative has already proved successful with six BBS students winning a scholarship to study in Asia in the coming academic year. The successful students will be studying at Hong Kong Baptist University School of Business, Nanyang Business School, Singapore, Ewha Business School, Seoul, South Korea and Tongji University, Shanghai, China.
