Our study abroad program in China gives business students the opportunity to experience an ancient culture that is undergoing accelerating economic change.
In January 2010, 2011, and 2012, groups of 18 to 24 students from the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business spent nearly two weeks traveling with business faculty to different cities in China. Students visited companies and manufacturing plants to learn about the forefront of globalization. They delved deep into China’s historic sites with visits to the Great Wall, the Jade Buddha Temple, and the Shanghai World Financial Tower—while gaining an understanding of the roots of China’s business prowess.
“China was honestly the greatest time of my life. I’m so happy to have these memories.”
“I LOVED this trip and would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s up for a new adventure.”
“Studying abroad in China had significant meaning to me. It was not only a chance for me to travel farther than I have ever been from home, but it gave me the opportunity to learn another culture firsthand. One can never truly understand or appreciate another culture until you are completely submerged in it. As a business student, I was able to better understand Chinese beliefs, points of view, and strategic tactics that are used in their everyday businesses. I strongly recommend this trip for any students that are interested. You will never get another chance to do anything so spectacular and exciting. I mean, who gets to go to CHINA?!”

“China has some of world’s most amazing, jaw-dropping natural sights. Yet it was all the little things such as the beauty of the natural Chinese landscape and all the people I met along the way that left me forever in love with China!”
“If you believe that traveling is only seeing a place you haven’t seen before, then you are terribly mistaken. Traveling builds long term friendships, independence and wisdom, which eventually over time emulates on one’s character.”
