To Learn about the World,
Visit the World
Sure you can study the world in the classroom, but to really understand, you'll have to go there....
Business today means global business, and we prepare you to understand the big picture so you can recognize and capture big opportunities.
Students in the master's programs at the College of Business and Economics take International Business during Spring ending with a two-week trip to China in May. The course concentrates on Chinese culture, international trade, and global business. Students and faculty travel together to China in late May to explore the Chinese market, meet Chinese company representatives, work with Chinese graduate students at Chinese universities, and visit various manufacturing facilities throughout China.
The program also includes study tours to cultural and historical sites such as Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Terra Cotta Warriors, and the Summer Palace. Company visits include Shanghai General Motors, Baoshan Steel Corporation, Johnson & Johnson and Owens Corning.
