China Business Program

The China Business Program is designed to better prepare students for entry into an increasingly international workplace by developing an understanding of the culture and customs of China through language study, overseas experience and associated coursework. The program will help develop students' critical thinking and contextual skills by allowing students to study and personally experience the rapid pace of economic development and social change in China and Asia. The program is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in business and who have a strong interest in China and Asia.

 Students must contact the China Business Program Director in the Farmer School of Business to have this program certificate noted on their academic transcript when applying for graduation. The program contains an embedded Liberal Education Thematic Sequence.
