Study Abroad: China

China

Shenzhen and Hong Kong Field Study

Spring Break, March 11-17, 2018

The trip is for graduate students only.

The goal of this trip is to provide an opportunity for students to experience the culture of two distinct regions in China, to learn about the interrelationships between the two cities and to gain exposure to people and companies doing business in both locales. Students may take two courses for up to 6 credit hours. No academic credit can be earned for the trip alone.

One of the 2017 trip participants, Kevin Florida, said this about the trip:

"One of the most valuable experiences of my graduate education was earned with my participation in the China Study Abroad program. The faculty encouraged and stimulated my curiosity both before and during the trip. The coursework was relevant to understanding international management techniques; the companies we visited and their speakers were both interesting and relevant to my degree. I would recommend this program to any MBA candidate who is serious about working in management for a large company."
