As China plays such a major role in the world economy, the faculty of Antwerp University feel that it is vital that their students experience China first-hand. For students that are studying international business, experiencing and gaining an understanding of life, business, and culture in China is crucial to their future success. This course has been taught in China through ChinaContact for 7 years, with the understanding that certain things cannot be taught in a classroom and are only learned through experience.
For students to:
10 company visits – students talked to top management of Chinese and intrnational corporations, gaining a greater understanding of the challenges and specific ways of doing business in China.
The Students came to China with very little knowledge of business, economy, culture, and history of China. They left with a much greater understanding of how all of these aspects are interwined. Upon reflection, they felt that their preconceptions were mostly wrong and much of their viewpoints had changed. Many students left with the aspiration of returning to China for business or study.
