Program Benefits

Degree Offerings

The joint-program between Liaoning Normal University and Missouri State University that is LNU-MSU offers a two-year AA degree in General Studies and the option to complete another two years for a BS degree in General Business. Students who choose to transfer to Missouri State University in Springfield for their last two years of study have the option of completing a Bachelor degree in other areas besides General Business including Accounting, Business Education, Financial Planning, IT Services, Marketing, and more. Exceptional students who complete their Bachelor degree in Springfield, may also then have the opportunity to continue their graduate and post-graduate studies in a variety of subject areas there as well.

LNU-MSU Student Body

Each year, the LNU-MSU program enrolls about 700 students. While most of the student body is comprised of Chinese nationals, nearly 10 percent of our students come from other countries including but not limited to the United States, South Korea, Indonesia, Mongolia, Japan, and many African nations. Whatever country you call home, we warmly welcome you to join us whether you're just beginning your college education or looking to finish a degree that you started somewhere else.

International Partners Scholarship

One of the benefits of MSU's many partnerships with universities in China is the scholarship opportunities available to students who have studied at one of the partnering schools. Students, whether Chinese or international, who have studied at LNU-MSU and transfer to MSU Springfield qualify for the International Partners Scholarship. The value of scholarship varies with the number of credit hours taken at MSU Springfield. The scholarship waives 75% of the out-of-state portion of tuition charged by Missouri State University. To make this deal even better, there is no limit to the number of students eligible. The total savings for a full-time undergraduate student taking 15 credit hours per semester would amount to more than $4,800 in savings over the course of one academic year based on the 2013-2014 tuition costs.

Praise from a Former Student

Jennifer Liu Yuhan

“I feel very lucky to have been able to attend LNU-MSU College of International Business. The four wonderful years there gave me many gifts. My English improved dramatically thanks to my teachers who encouraged me to speak, from one word, one sentence, one paragraph, to finally, a full in-class presentation. My gifts were not as much about knowledge, but much more about building my confidence and ability. I learned not only what was in the books, but how to be a success in the real world. I even attended a meeting with a Chinese company president to talk about the importance of communication. This would never happen in a common Chinese university. I am so grateful for the unique educational experience given to me at LNU-MSU. Thank you Dean Dong, the staff and all my dear teachers.”
