The Audencia Nantes School of Management in France and China's Beijing Institute of Technology have strengthened bilateral cooperation recently.

They set up a Cooperative Center for Studies Audencia-BIT, which will enable French students to study at BIT. Excellent junior students at BIT will also have the opportunity to study at Audencia for two years before they get their master's degree.

In addition, both universities also agreed to offer a "1 plus 1" MBA program jointly, which means students will spend one year at Audencia, the other year at BIT, and will get certificates from both.

Frank Vidal, president of the Audencia Nantes School of Management, said they were glad to cooperate with BIT, especially when they knew that BIT developed from Sino-French University, which was founded in 1920 in Beijing and merged into BIT in 1950.
