Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJLTU) recently signed with 88 Initiative and St Catharine’s College Cambridge to provide a Master Class and Leadership Exchange programme. 
The XJLTU-88 Initiative Master Class in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is delivered in classes and workshops, focusing on interaction with real companies, their management and experts in financing and bringing innovation to China. This therefore involves practical experience in negotiating deals, which, in some cases, may lead to successful investment. 88 Initiative has planned a series of high-level networking meetings in Cambridge and London during the programme, where participants will have a chance to discuss UK opportunities including specific investment prospects with potential partners, advisers and experts from industry, government and academia, and to develop permanent relationships for the future.
