Gain a Deeper Understanding of Contemporary Business Issues in China

The Chinese have been involved in international business since the days of Marco Polo and the Silk Road. Add to that heritage to the rapid economic growth Shanghai has seen since the late 1970s, and you’ve got one fascinating place to explore global business. Join us to learn, network, intern, and explore the rich cultural traditions in the world’s most populated city.

Perched on the banks of the Huangpu River and the East China Sea, Shanghai is China’s largest city by population, and a global hub of culture, commerce, and finance. Massively redeveloped over the past 20 years, the city boasts many of the world’s latest and greatest. The list includes: uber-tall buildings stretching up in the new financial district; and the world’s fastest-growing rapid-transit system featuring the world’s first commercial high-speed Maglev train.

  • Learn more about Chinese business with company visits in Nanjing or Hong Kong, or by following the Silk Road, an ancient caravan route.

  • Explore Chinese history and arts with visits to museums, art exhibitions, and plays.
  • Step back in time with visits to traditional water towns like Wuzhen and Zhujiajiao, lined with narrow cobbled lanes, stone bridges, canals, and rich history.
  • Get hands-on cultural experience by learning Chinese cooking, calligraphy, martial arts, music, or mahjong.
