January 25, 2010 (FPRC) -- Mr. Morley Chertkoff, formerly of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, has been instrumental in helping bring to China a record $100 million dollar funded expansion of a private university over the next three years. The university is Zhengzhou College of Economics of Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, of the Peoples Republic of China. Zhengzhou, a city of eight and a half million people is in the heart of China's most populace province.
Mr. Chertkoff, a resident of China since April of 2004, is the Director of the University's International Studies Division and of their new International Business Center. He is responsible for outreach to international universities and governmental organizations. Mr. Chertkoff has sought favorable liaisons and partnerships with western schools and organizations to help bring Chinese culture and education to the West and in turn, western culture and education to China.
One of these partnerships has been established with higher education university builders, Global Academy Online, Inc., headed by Dr. Fred DiUlus, the CEO and Founder of the Academy. DiUlus states “Morley Chertkoff introduced us to the funding opportunity of Chinese higher education for western investors. His effort”, he went on to say, “produced a very high level of interest that opened the door for online higher education in China with Zhengzhou College of Economics becoming the center and conduit for all online education in China.”
Saturday, December 19, 2009, saw the fruit of Morley Chertkoff's labor as Mr. Alex Angioli, representing Wolverine Asset Management, LLC of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA and Mr. Qiao Xin Jian, owner and principal of Zhengzhou College of Economics, entered into a historic Sino-American educational pact which will bring approximately $100 million dollar to the Zhengzhou College of Economics over the next three years. Mr. Qiao Xin Jian expressed his confidence in Mr. Chertkoff by saying (in translation) “In today's competitive educational marketplace, only an experienced academic fundraiser would be able to initiate, frame, and develop the interest required in this sort of higher education investment.”
Zhengzhou College of Economics is undertaking to construct a new 400-acre campus in the heart of Zhengzhou City to consolidate five area-wide campuses into one central location. The university is introducing China's first nationwide online virtual university as part of their expanding College and Research Park development.
