Chinese Enrollment Rising / Asian Recruiting Tour

In mid October, 57 software professionals from 21 nations entered our MS in Computer Science for Computer Professionals program. 12 of these students have come from China, representing more than 20% of the class. This appears to be the beginning of a significant expansion of Chinese students at MUM, thanks to the dedicated efforts of MSCS graduate, Henry Luo, and his wife Echo.

The Luo's have invested considerable effort in creating partnerships with established, trusted higher education organizations in China, and founded a company, WinWinSolu Technology, with the purpose of locating and bringing top quality IT professionals from China to MUM's MSCS program. Assisting in this endeavor is MUM Professor Dr. Yunxiang Zhu, who directs MUM's educational collaborations throughout China.

Dean and Administrative Director Coming to Asia

On November 24, 2010, the Dean of our School of Computer Science and Mathematics, Professor Greg Guthrie, and his wife Elaine, who is the Administrative Director of our program, will travel to China to begin a 4-week recruiting tour.

According to Elaine, "We are very excited to visit China, Nepal, and India over the next few weeks. During the last 15 years of our MSCS program, we have had many students from these countries graduate from this program. In the October 2010 entry, we enrolled 12 students from China, 10 from Nepal, and 2 from India. We look forward to meeting with many more prospective students to let them know of the wonderful advantages of this program, and how it will enhance their lives and IT career."

During the tour, Dr. Guthrie will be speaking on the topics "Trends in Higher Education in the U.S. for Computing and IT", plus "IT job market and our students placement: The structure of the M.S. in Computer Science Program at MUM."

All MSCS graduates, prospective students, and their families and friends are warmly invited to attend Dr. Guthrie's lectures, and to speak personally with the Guthries.
