THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Faculty members from a Chinese university are on the campus of Thomas University as the two school's finalize a new partnership.

Guangzhou College of south China has an enrollment of 17,000, Thomas University, has only a few thousand but the universities share the same mission and come August a new partnership will begin.

"The reason they are here is because we've become partners in delivering a business administration program, an undergraduate program, to students at their college," Thomas University executive vice president.

Thirteen business school faculty members from the south China University are learning about TU's program through a two week seminar.

"It's a very wonderful opportunity for us to attend this training session," The dual degree program will allow Chinese students to take a combination of classes from two universities and finish with a degree in business from Thomas University while remaining in China.

Professor Liguang Wu says faculty members are taking it all in. Especially since many of them have never traveled to the United States. "A different language a different food but anyway they arranged everything well the people are very friendly we feel right at home away from home," said Wu.

He believes that as they continue to learn more about Thomas University's business classes and teaching methods they will be placed in a position for great success.

"We'll be better prepared, we're growing more confident," said Wu.

The faculty members will attend presentations by Thomasville area business owners and will visit businesses in Thomasville and Tallahassee.

More than 100 students have enrolled in the program that begins next fall.
