The session was one in a series of activities of the 3rd UN Job Fair organized by the China Scholarship Council. The event invites international organizations such as UNESCO to hold special sessions jointly with several universities in China. Representatives from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China University of Petroleum, Zhengzhou University, Chongqing University, Sichuan University and other universities attended the IOM session, with a total of 586 participants.

WHU has been involved in training international organization talents across campus since 2017. WHU initially explored a development path for the training of international organization talents by designing recommender platforms for international organization internships, developing Sino-foreign joint training programs, and establishing experimental classes of international law and classes of global governance and international organization talents.
