Washington, DC (PressExposure) July 11, 2011 -- In 2010, Global Academy Online set the stage for major American education institutions and real estate developers to co-partner planned urban developments surrounding educational hubs within the People's Republic of China's most populated province and home to the ancient Shaolin Temple and the original Imperial Palace. The Academy joined Zhengzhou Bridge Educational Consulting Company of Zhengzhou, China, and the Canadabridge Education, Inc. of Toronto, Canada, in forming Atlanta based Sino American Bridge Consulting Group LLC (Sino American BCG).
Sino American BCG grew out of a 2009 VIP trip organized by Chinese officials and Global Academy Online, Inc. of Washington DC. Dr Fred DiUlus, CEO of the Academy, was selected to lead the contingency of American VIP's to China. The group consisted of corporate leaders, state officials, bankers and American higher education experts.
Among the innovations included within Sino American's International partnership is the support of Global Academy Online designed International Business Centers (IBC) for American, Canadian and China colleges and universities. Under the Academy's IBC programs, North American's will have an opportunity to matriculate in IBC's in China with English speaking instruction while learning Chinese culture and Mandarin Chinese. The first IBC is planned for Zhengzhou College of Economics to be opened in 2012.
North American students will live on the local Chinese economy with host families in a specially designed Chinese home school environment studying Mandarin, history and culture. Alternately, Chinese students attending IBC selected schools in North America will complete their formal course of study in Mandarin. Like their North American counterparts in China, students will live on the economy learning English in a traditional American home school environment studying American history and culture as well as the English language.
The International Business Centers are designed to assist Sino American BCG clients in China, Canada, and the USA with dual trained and educated Chinese, Canadian and American graduates who will be trained for the opportunity to undertake and to assist in the growing dual culture projects anticipated between the two nations over the coming years. The graduates of IBC's will contribute a viable culturally aware work force to run American-Chinese partnered enterprises.
Sino American BCG's own projects planned for urban and educational development total $900 million to $1.5 billion over the next five years. According to Dr. DiUlus that amount is dwarfed by the anticipated financial cooperation and development expected between the two economic powers over the next ten years. "Our contribution to a trained workforce", he says, "is just touching the surface but as we help create more IBC's over the years, we expect this professionally trained workforce to grow exponentially."
