The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board has announced the selection of professor Andrew Leckey of Arizona State University as a Fulbright Scholar to China for the 2014 spring term. He will teach business journalism at Sun Yat-Sen University(SYSU) in Guangzhou, China.

Leckey is the Reynolds Chair in Business Journalism at ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the president of the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, which he launched in 2003. He previously served as a longtime nationally syndicated investment columnist for the Chicago Tribune and worked as a CNBC anchor and reporter. He is the author or editor of 10 financial books.

Leckey has extensive experience in China. He has led several Cronkite summer study abroad trips to the country, has lectured at major Chinese universities, has appeared on China Central Television to speak about economic issues and has contributed articles to Chinese magazines and books. He also has hosted visiting scholars from China at the Cronkite School.

"I learn something every time I go to China and appreciate this Fulbright opportunity to teach business journalism at Sun Yat-Sen University," Leckey said. "The university has an outstanding tradition and its communications dean is respected business journalist Hu Shuli, editor-in-chief of the Caixin Media publications."

Leckey is on the board of governors of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, a professional business journalism organization based at the Cronkite School, and is on the advisory board of Columbia University's Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics Journalism.

CUCAS will pay attention on this business journalism program and update it when it begin to enroll. We hope many international students can get better education with less cost in China.
