<p><strong>Hoboken, N.J. &mdash; May 10</strong><br />A group of Chinese bank personnel who studied at Stevens Institute of Technology&#39;s graduate program in Beijing are on their way to New Jersey to receive their master&#39;s degree in project management. </p><p>Employees of China Development Bank will be awarded diplomas, along with more than 800 other students May 24. </p><p>&quot;It&#39;s fitting that our students who studied in China will be on campus when they receive their degrees,&quot; said Stevens Program Dirtector Audrey Curtis. &quot;They completed the school&#39;s highly rigerous academic program, and the degree they earn is exactly the same as those who study in US.&quot;<br /><br />The dozen students are in the initial cohort in Stevens&#39; partnership with Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE). </p><p>CUFE is an elite, key university in Beijing that grooms top executives for China&#39;s Finance Ministry and the country&#39;s banking industry.<br /><br />Students in Beijing took one-third of their courses online from Hoboken, taught by Stevens&#39; faculty, as part of the school&#39;s award-winning online unit, WebCampus.</p><p>Another third of their courses were taught by Stevens faculty on-site in Beijing. A final third were taught by highly qualified CUFE faculty using Stevens curriculum.<br /><br />Tuition for employees in the program is funded by the China Development Bank, a state-run institution that finances such major projects as the Three Gorges Dam and the Beijing Olympics. </p><p>The program is managed by Stevens Vice President Maureen Weatherall and Robert Ubell, executive director of the school&#39;s Institute for the Advanced Study of Online Learning and Professional Education.</p>
