Overview

The Foreign Language School of Beijing Technology and Business University has undergone more than six decades of exploration, reformation, and construction and has developed into an institution with comprehensive specialties and disciplines. The enrollment of four-year English major undergraduates in our school can be traced back to 1988, making our university one of the first of Beijing municipal universities to recruit English majors. Basically, we focus on developing students’ skills in English speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation.

 

Ultimately, we lay emphasis on nurturing students to uplift their cultural values and to broaden their visions of the world by providing them chances to expose to different cultures and backgrounds during their study in college. Consequently, our students enjoy a high employment rate after graduation from college, most of them working with established organizations and companies in such fields as diplomacy, world trade, justice, telecommunications, tourism, education, etc. According to statistics, the employment rate is 97% for 7 consecutive years from 2004 to 2010. Some of our graduated students are pursuing further study in other countries and regions, like USA, UK, Canada, and Hongkong or working and living abroad.
