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.
The China trip, in their words
"The trip was a perfect balance of business analysis and tourist must-sees. We toured DuPont's Innovation Center, and really dug into the logistics of business in China. Add a smart and fun-loving group of people, and it will end up as one of your favorite trips, as it was for me."
—Mary Beth Hayes, MBA15
"After the trip, I felt I had a much better grasp, specifically, on Chinese business and culture, and in general, a better understanding of how to approach business in a foreign market. These lessons will only further our company's business growth."
—Aaron Morrow, MBA15
