The world is waiting for you.

The University of Dayton believes in creating change. That's why we're offering students from any university up to $15,000 in scholarships to attend the University of Dayton China Institute. 

If you are a current UD student, you can also spend a semester studying at UDCI. The cost is the same as if you were at UD – but you’ll gain exposure to a whole new world – while still staying on track to graduate.

UDCI Programs

The University of Dayton China Institute is just 75 miles from Shanghai in the ultramodern higher education district of Suzhou, which is home to a third of the world’s Fortune 500 companies.

Each semester, a number of courses are offered in business, engineering, and the arts and sciences. Detailed course listings will be posted when they become available.

As part of the learning experience, you’ll also interact and conduct hands-on research with UD’s partner companies in Suzhou Industrial Park, including:

  • Emerson Climate Technologies
  • GE Aviation
  • Johnson & Johnson Medical
  • Lilly Pharmaceutical

Other partners include Crown Equipment, CSA Group, Delphi Electronics, Henny Penny, Marian, Makino and SAS Automation — just to name a few.

Guest speakers from multinational companies and professors from UD’s partner universities will provide Chinese culture and society seminars on topics ranging from how to do business in China to appreciating the music, art and tai chi. You’ll also spend time exploring the rich cultures of Shanghai, Suzhou, Nanjing and Beijing.

We live and work in a world without borders. If you want a global experience and an edge in the workplace when you graduate, register for a semester abroad at the University of Dayton China Institute.

It’s an opportunity to build your résumé and enjoy a life-changing experience.
