美国密苏里南州立大学代表团一行7人于2004年9月2日来我院访问。代表团中有该大学校长Julio S León 先生和夫人、董事会主席Dwight Douglas先生、董事会副主席Douglas Brooks 博士和夫人、学校留学生部主任Chad Stebbins 博士、学校媒体学系主任Jay R Moorman 博士。他们在王荣昌院长、刘洪老院长和周树玲副院长的陪同下参观了我院两个校园，并和遇到的学生们进行了友好而随意的交谈。随后，两校领导就合作事宜进行了非常有成效的探讨，在互换学生、互换教师、我院学生到美国密苏里南州立大学上专升本、为我院学生提供奖学金、将该院的远程教育引进我院等问题达成了初步的意向。
该大学校长Julio S León 先生和其他来访者对我院学生的英语水平和热情而大方的谈吐给予很高的评价，他们认为我院的外语教学水平高，学生的素质高，也反映出我国在改革开放之后青年人积极向上和开放的精神，这一切给他们留下了深刻的印象。国际商务专业也是他们学校的大专业，密苏里州政府也在最近提出要加强与世界其他国家在经济方面的联系，所以他们希望在这个专业等多方面与我院合作。
