CIM, established as a Business Confucius Institute, has a unique location in the heart of the Euregion, merging applied science based teaching and business & financial expertise into China related language, culture and business courses and trainings. The municipalities of Maastricht and Sittard and the province of Limburg all have strong ties with China.

Knowing a language and a culture opens many doors. Maybe you have always wanted to learn about China, but never found the time or place to realize it. Now with CIM around the corner, you have China at your fingertips! People will greatly appreciate your efforts of using Chinese language skills and cultural knowledge while engaging in intercultural communication.
