Sias International University is the first solely American-owned University in Central China. Affiliated with Zhengzhou University and in cooperation with Fort Hays State University of Kansas, it is a totally new type of university designed in response to current educational demands. The establishment of Sias has been approved by the State Council and licensed by the Henan Provincial Education Commission to carry out higher institutional education. It is the first university that has been permitted by the State Degree Office to offer core classes such as Western Civilization, Sociology and Government.
The aim of Sias International University is to develop diligent and innovative professionals to meet the urgent demands of trans-national corporations and enterprises. Combining both Chinese educational philosophies with a Western model of education, Chinese students have the benefit of a fresh learning perspective while having access to alternative ways of thinking about business and liberal arts.
