International Business in China
 



About the Program

Shanghai offers you the unparalleled opportunity to study international business and economic development in Asia's financial center. Outside the classroom you get a first-hand encounter with China's rapidly changing business environment through corporate visits and internships with Chinese and multi-national companies.

About Shanghai

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to study international business or trade? Shanghai is your city.
