School of Business Students Travel Abroad to China
The Fall 2015 China Business Education Abroad class traveled to Beijing, Shanghai, and Suzhou from October 8th through the 18th.
Professors Ed Fenton, Burke Christensen, and Siwei Gao accompanied the students as they visited a variety of companies, including KPMG, Zurich, Ogilvy & Mather, Caterpillar, AIA, and CCCC LTD. At each company, the students learned about how businesses operate within China as well as globally. The EKU group also met with professors and students from two Chinese universities: Peking University and Tsinghua University.
In addition to the business and university visits, they toured some of the famous cultural sites such as The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, and the Jade Buddha Temple.
The students will incorporate their learning experience into the course-required research papers due late this semester.
