China Campus (LNU) Enrollment and Retention

Liaoning Normal University (LNU) and Missouri State University (MSU) created the LNU-MSU College of International Business (CIB) in 2000.  The first two years of the program involve students earning an Associate of Arts (AA) degree in General Studies conferred through MSU-West Plains.  

Although LNU is a branch campus of MSU-West Plains, international campuses are not generally reported through standard compliance reporting.  However, the same measures can be used to provide information about the LNU campus using similar methods and defintions.
