it CARLOW signed a strategic agreement with one of China's leading finance universities, exposing the institute's students to industry and academic expertise at a global scale in one of the world's leading financial centres.
Shanghai Finance University (SFU) has signed a finance services collaboration agreement with Institute of Technology Carlow that will see staff and students travelling between both colleges to work on projects specific to accounting and finance. The agreement between SFU and IT Carlow offers myriad opportunities for both undergraduates and postgraduates.

Vice President of Shanghai Finance University (SFU), Mr Chen Xiaobing, visited IT Carlow to sign the agreement.
