Business Management Core (BMC)

Portland State University’s Business Management Core (BMC) Program is a custom designed 36 credit hour exchange program designed for business and economics students who have completed three years of undergraduate education from three Chinese universities: Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, Zhengzhou University, and Guangdong University of Finance. This credit program is designed to prepare students for entry into graduate programs in U.S. universities. Students are admitted to Portland State University and receive official transcripts after completing the program.  The program is staffed and run by the School of Business, an AACSB accredited business school.

Program Schedule

The BMC Program begins in Portland on August 15, and concludes on April 15 of the following year with graduation ceremonies. The academic calendar for the program is divided into three terms that roughly correspond to Summer, Fall, and Winter terms of the academic year at Portland State University.

Program Curriculum

BMC consists of nine courses - 36 quarter credit hours in total - from the core classes required for completing all business degrees in the School of Business.
