DUFE has over twenty years of experienced in international education. It has produced thousands of graduates from over 60 countries all over the world. We have formed an International Students Education Management System which includes undergraduate programs, graduate programs, doctoral degree programs and short-term or long-term Chinese and Business Chinese courses.
