Hard to beat for expanded worldview

The International Business Seminar takes you into the heart of China's dynamic markets.

We can talk about international business and global commodity prices all day long. Yet there is no substitute for spending time on the ground in a rapidly evolving market like China and meeting with business leaders. The International Business Seminar is an immersive 10-day experience in doing business globally.

Travel to Shanghai and Beijing. Visit local and multinational companies and hear from top executives as they share what keeps them up at night. Attend a workshop led by Shanghai’s business leaders about the effect of the Chinese culture on local business practices. Network with diplomatic representatives from the U.S. and China and get their take on global economics.

Along the way, you'll learn about the complex history that shapes today's China—a cruise on the Huangpu River, a guided visit to the emperor’s residence, and walk along the Great Wall.

I thought I knew my classmates, but I got to know them so much better.
