Sun Yat-Sen University

Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) has been well recognized because of its academic excellence and its profound connection with the Chinese contemporary history.It is considered to be the best university in Southeast China and is ranking at around No. 10 in China mainland.



OSU's Hotel and Restaurant Administration (HRAD) Program is famous around the globe. OSU made this strong program even stronger by cooperating with the prestigious Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, to launch the undergraduate dual degree program. The Hotel and Tourism Management Program of the School of Business Sun Yat-sen University is the best program in the field of hotel and tourism in China mainland.


The students in this 2+2 program finish their freshman and sophomore years at Sun Yat-sen University so they can learn most of the core business courses. They are exposed to more practical training opportunities including both labs and internships after they start their junior year at OSU.

With the support from both HRAD and Sun Yat-sen University, the first group of students (2009 Cohort) have set up a fabulous beginning of the program. They successfully bring positive impacts on various aspects of the OSU campus, as well as keep their academic excellence. For more photos, please click on Photo Gallery.
