Chongqing Technology and Business University (CTBU)

Chongqing Technology and Business University (CTBU) is situated in Chongqing city – known as the ‘gateway to the west’. CTBU has benefited from the rapidly growing economy of Chongqing, and in recent years has become one of the leading universities in this region. It has about 24,000 full-time students.

CTBU covers an area of about 330 acres with a floor space of more than 800,000 square meters. The main campus, nestled at the foot of Nanshan Mountain and near the Yangtze River, lies only 7 kilometers from the central shopping and entertainment area of Chongqing. A beautifully landscaped environment—with many trees and gardens, and mountain hiking on the high side of campus—along with the attractive architecture of buildings make the campus a popular attraction for local people and tourists alike. An excellent bus network and light-rail system connects CTBU to the city centre and the surrounding suburbs. It takes just 30 minutes to drive to Chongqing International Airport.
