John Simpson will celebrate the anniversary on October 9-11 with visits to three Beijing universities that in 1981 were the first to open educational exchanges with University of Buffalo, marking the first such agreements with any U.S. university following the normalization of relations between the U.S. and the Peoples Republic of China in 1979.
John Simpson said the UB exchanges opened the door for other U.S. universities to establish educational programs with China over the past 25 years.
He will also will attend an alumni reception with prominent Chinese leaders who earned degrees at the University of Buffalo or who graduated from its groundbreaking MBA programs in Beijing and Dalian.
In 1984 the Uuniversity of Buffalo School of Management established the first U.S. MBA program in China at Dalian University. Since 1999 the School of Management has operated an Executive MBA program at Renmin University in Beijing.
