Keuka China Programs

Earn an American Degree in China

The Keuka College China Program (KCP) offers a bachelor of science degree completion program in management. A graduate of the program receives a bachelor’s degree conferred by Keuka College and a degree conferred by the Chinese partner university. These degrees are recognized by both the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America.

In 2002, Keuka College successfully partnered with major Chinese universities in launching the Sino-American Academic Collaboration Program. This international relationship has received the official approval of the Office of Academic Degrees Committee for the State Council in the People’s Republic of China.  

China embraces free enterprise and individual opportunity, and Keuka College, as a leader in experiential, hands-on learning, has been able to provide its Chinese partners with support for introducing Field Period® internships for all KCP students.

Keuka College’s partner universities in China value the Field Period® concept that requires students to apply what they have learned in the college classroom to real-life situations. Field Period® is a way for Keuka College students, both in the U.S. and in China, to become more competitive in the job market. Chinese businesses appreciate the skills that Keuka College graduates have, and American companies in China are very receptive to the Field Period® idea. With thousands of American companies operating in China, Keuka College is primed to have a positive impact on two of the most powerful economic forces in the world.

Keuka College’s partner universities include Yunnan University of Finance & Economics, Jimei University, Shandong Business Institute, and Anyang Normal University.

Currently there are approximately 2,000 Keuka China Programs students enrolled among the Chinese partner universities, and there are more than 10,000 successful graduates from the Keuka China Programs.
