Enhance your resume with international experience in Asia

The Marriott Tianjin China Program is an undergraduate dual-degree program in Hospitality Management, which has been approved by China’s Ministry of Education (Approval Code: MOE12US2A20040205O). Students will complete a full semester at the FIU program located on the campus of Tianjin University of Commerce in Tianjin, the sixth-largest city in China and the seaport for the capital, Beijing.

Students taking classes on the Tianjin University of Commerce campus follow the same curriculum taught at the Chaplin School in the U.S. Students must adhere to the same academic requirements for graduation.

Experience international hospitality and tourism firsthand as you earn an undergraduate degree and learn the industry in China. This opportunity is available to all FIU students. Transfer students are encouraged to complete their first year in China, then return to Miami for their senior year.

“I participated in the program in Fall 2019, and it was life-changing! Not only do you get to explore amazing sites, but you meet such wonderful people. The staff are accommodating, the campus is huge, and you never know what you can learn – just like I learned to ride a bike for the first time in China.” Sasha John, B.S. ’20
