In order to develop a more scientific education system of Business English courses, this paper studies the case of Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS, one of Chinese top-three foreign language universities) by questionnaires. The result shows that: 1) Most of the students hope that the school could add more business courses in the curriculum setting, as it can help them to find better jobs or it will be more consistent with their interests and expectations when they decide to choose this major. 2) Students hope that they have more opportunities to practice their English listening, speaking and business practice skills. 3) There are many difficulties when students are learning business English, so the school should add some related courses to help students to deal with these problems. Based on the empirical analysis and the findings of this research, some suggestions are proposed for the improvement of the education system.
