Gies College of Business
in Partnership with
Zhejiang University International Business School


Thank you for choosing Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! We look forward to welcoming you to campus; however, we understand that there are significant travel restrictions and visa processing delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You are part of the Gies family, and we’ve created a way to help keep you safe and ensure you stay on track for graduation. If you’re not able to join us on campus this fall, we’d like to offer you the opportunity to start the fall semester on the Zhejiang University International Business School (ZIBS) campus in Haining, China.

As a Gies freshman studying at ZJU-UIUC, you will enjoy an on-campus experience with other UIUC students from engineering, liberal arts and sciences, and more. Your education and activities will mirror what’s happening on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and you’ll have plenty of fellow Illini students to learn from and collaborate with. You will be able to start taking your Illinois courses as planned, and all credits you earn will count toward graduation.
