“China’s Rise” becomes part of curriculum

Through my university, I received two announcements of summer schools in China for foreign students: one at Wuhan University and one at People’s University (which now prefers not to translate its name but call itself Renmin University in English as well — I guess “People’s” sounds too old-style). They are quite different, with the latter being more academically oriented, boasting some fairly well-known and/or overseas scholars, while the former is more the traditional “learn folk songs and be introduced to business opportunities” type. But both have classes called China’s Rise (the former, though, is on “The Rise of Central China” and mixed with business promotion). I wonder if this has become part of some recommended curriculum.
