Program Description:
China: Operations and HR
In a setting rich with human resources and widely known as the world's leading manufacturing center, China is the perfect place for students to experience business globally. While living and studying in Shanghai students get to know this vibrant city of nearly 30 million people, which is their home for the seven weeks. In addition to Shanghai, students also have the opportunity to visit Hangzhou, the tea capital of China, and Beijing which includes a tour of the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Tiananmen Square.

While studying topics such as employee recruitment and selection and managing workforce diversity, students participate in several company visits to manufacturing facilities and corporate headquarters to gain insight into how business is done in China. Students also participate in a seminar series featuring local business faculty and corporate leaders who are experts in the cultural nuances of Chinese business.
