Red River College has expanded its international reach with the recent signing of an agreement with Henan Business College (HBC) of Zhengzhou, China, to offer a joint program in Hotel Management.

Under the terms of the agreement, students will complete two years of study at HBC, followed by a year at RRC’s soon-to-open Paterson GlobalFoods Institute. Succesful graduates will receive a diploma from both institutions. RRC will also send instructors to China to teach courses to HBC students enrolled in the joint program.

“This agreement builds on our existing relationships with colleges and universities across Asia,” explained David Leis, Vice President of Business Development for RRC. “Red River College is a Canadian leader in providing hospitality management education, and joint programs like this allow us to share our expertise with the rest of the world.”

HBC has already recruited 40 students for the initial intake of the program, and the first class is expected in Winnipeg in September 2013.

Founded in 1960, Henan Business College offers programming in business administration and applied arts to over 11,000 students. Henan is Manitoba’s sister province in China.
