China Gateway News

To receive news and updates from the China Gateway — including information on international agreements, alumni gatherings, networking events and Ohio State students, faculty and staff in China — please register your interest in the Gateway. 

Faculty traveling to China are encouraged to notify Gateway director Phoebe You of their impending visit. The staff at the Shanghai office can help by facilitating focused networking, targeted recruitment and support for scholarly work abroad. The Gateways can also help identify accommodations and provide recommendations and general wayfinding. 

The Ohio State China Gateway has built many partnerships with international corporations through the Global Internship Program and the American Universities’ China Association (AUCA). Thanks to the success of these partnerships, the China Gateway will collaborate with five American universities to create a shared career resources center in China. The center will provide opportunities to the university’s alumni and current students.

The China Gateway has also been involved in other career resource activities by actively assisting in the planning of two half-day career fairs in China. The first career fair took place in Shanghai on August 6 and attracted 70 of the top firms and over 1,100 Chinese professionals. The second fair in Beijing on August 13 had over 50 firms and 700 other attendees, 200 of which were Ohio State alumni and students. Several of the companies in attendance included J.P. Morgan, Apple, IBM, Abercrombie & Fitch, Ernst & Young, Bloomberg, Audi and Kantar Retail.
