The Center for Global Initiatives and the College of Business offer a Business and Culture in China program for late summer 2015. This is an 11-day, three-credit study program in China (BUSN 394 / 793). It incorporates company visits and cultural tours in four Chinese cities in addition to lectures by industry experts. It provides a great opportunity to experience China - the world's oldest continuous civilization as well as fastest-growing major economy.
The three Chinese cities you will visit are:
Beijing - the capital of China and one of the world's great cities. With a history of 2,500 years, it is the political, educational, and cultural center of China.
Shanghai - the largest city in China, and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. It is the "showpiece" of the world's fastest-growing economy.
Suzhou - considered to be the "Venice of China", Suzhou has many beautiful gardens.
This trip includes visits to cultural and historical sites such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace in Beijing; the Bund and Chinese acrobatics show in Shanghai; and the Lingering Garden in Suzhou.
Optional trip to Xi'an, August 13-15, 2015: one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. It has more than 3,100 years of history and was the capital of some of the most important dynasties in Chinese history. Xi'an is the eastern terminus of the Silk Road, and there will be visits to the Terra Cotta Warrior's Museum, the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, and biking along the city wall. There will be an additional program cost for the Xi'an trip. All round-trip train and private bus transportation is provided, including breakfast each day.
Program Dates: August 3-13, 2015
