University computer science curricula worldwide are constantly evolving to reflect the current needs of an ever-expanding economy and global business environment. The information technology industry in China continues to expand rapidly, not only in terms of outsourcing, but also in the research and development area. In this paper we describe how academia in China, in correspondence with the change of dynamics in business, faces the challenge and adjusts their traditional programs to dovetail with current and future business trends. We examine how Chinese government makes significant changes to its structure and its approach to developing policy and strategies in support of globalization. In particular, we review how educators innovate computer science curricula and pedagogy to reflect international business dynamics, consistently infusing real world applications into course and programs. A highly competitive workforce in research and development is produced, meeting the fast-growing demands of global business and ever-changing field of information technology.
