All roads lead to Rome; all business leads to China. China – an “increasingly diverse $11 trillion economy” – remains a top exporter of manufactured goods and a major demand center. After completing your 1-credit Spring Semester course on campus, travel to Hong Kong and China in May 2018 to better understand how companies are adapting and innovating their operations strategy to ensure the success of their global investment. Discover how 5,000 years of rich history translates to one of the largest markets of today.
The Chinese landscape is far from homogeneous – with 23 provinces, 4 municipalities, 5 autonomous regions, and 2 special Administrative Regions. Program travel is based in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing, but tentative business visits are scheduled to take the group north of Hong Kong and across the mainland border to Shenzhen. A day excursion from Shanghai is tentatively scheduled in Suzhou, the “Venice of the East”.
Tentative business meetings in Shanghai include GM-SAIC, Crown Equipment Co, NFL China, etc. Tentative business meetings in Hong Kong include Mast Industries, TAL Apparel, Modern Terminal, etc.
Tentative cultural tours include the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Lamma Island, Victoria Peak, Po Lin Monastery, The Bund, Humble Administrator’s Garden, etc.
You will stay in double occupancy hotel rooms.
