Program Locations

Beijing, China


Beijing, located in Northern China, is the capital of the country.  It is the second largest city in China with a population of 20 million. With a history of 3,000 years, Beijing presents its ancient culture as well as its modern civilization through the architecture and museums – including 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the Great Wall and Forbidden City.  Beijing is the cultural, political and educational center of China and attracts tens of millions of visitors nationwide as well as from different countries every year. As an exchange student, you will have the opportunity to engage in academic discourse and gain a deeper understanding of the business environment in China. As Beijing is the heart of China, you will not only enjoy the PKU culture, but also live in one of the world’s most dynamic and historic cities.


Students studying at Peking University (PKU) will have access to Chinese and English-taught courses at Guanghua School of Management. Courses range from management to economics, and can include a small number of courses in other schools and departments at PKU.  For students who are fluent in Mandarin, you will be able to enroll in regular University classes.   In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the Guanghua School of Management website. 

You will need to be sure that you are registered as a full-time student according to PKU and Rutgers University. The credit translation system between Peking University and Rutgers University is 1:1, meaning a 3-credit course at Peking University will also be a 3-credit course on your Rutgers University transcript. That means you will need to take at least 12 credits per semester. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail. 

For information about Study Abroad credit transfer, registration, and transcripts please visit the Academics section of our website.
