Dongbei University of Finance and Economics is located in the north-east of China in a city called Dalian.  Dalian is only a 50 minute flight from Beijing and 2 hour flight from Shanghai.  A centre for trade and finance, Dalian is one of China’s most prosperous cities, attracting top international companies such as Microsoft, Nokia, IBM, Intel and Accenture, as well as major banking, insurance and security companies.  Dalian is also a popular tourist destination, with a mild climate, beautiful beaches and stunning coastal scenery.  The city offers a pleasant study environment but with a surprisingly different atmosphere from China’s neighboring capital city. With a thriving student community, plenty of entertainment and great transport across China, Dalian is a great place to live and study as an international student.
