Now the LSE is going to China

More British educational export business in China, this time by the London School of Economics. This from the BBC:

The London School of Economics is taking its summer schools to China this summer for the first time.

The courses will be run in partnership with Peking University.

Dr John Board, head of the LSE Summer School programme, said: "We are delighted to be offering this selection of flagship courses from our London programme in Peking."

"It is a step into a new market but one we are confident will attract interest."

The bosses of British universities sound more and more like businessmen, which would be because, more and more, they are businessmen.
