University President Fr. Dionisio M. Miranda, SVD in his message said that the occasion was symbolic of “coming full circle.” He shared that the Society of the Divine Word’s (with Latin initials, SVD) presence in China ceased almost 60 years ago.

On Tuesday, GEC, a Chinese agency based in Qing Yuan City, Guangdong Province, Chinawishes to promote USC’s brand of education to China. USC is one of only ten universities recognized for quality education by the Chinese Ministry of Education.

GEC is owned and managed by two Chinese USC alumni namely, Dr. Li Si Jian and Dr. Zhang Fan, who finished their doctorate degrees with the SBE a few years ago. They believe in the brand value of USC’s business education and will encourage Chinese students to pursue their degrees at USC.
