Program OverviewCIEE Shangai Bus.Lang&CultSUM

Perched on the banks of the Huangpu River and the East China Sea, Shanghai is China’s largest city by population, and a global hub of culture, commerce, and finance. Massively redeveloped over the past 20 years, the city boasts many of the world’s latest and greatest. The list includes: uber-tall buildings stretching up in the new financial district; and the world’s fastest-growing rapid-transit system featuring the world’s first commercial high-speed Maglev train.

Program Focus

CIEE’s Business, Language, and Culture program is designed for students who have taken three semesters of college-level microeconomics or macroeconomics, accounting, finance, management, or marketing. Courses are focused on contemporary business issues affecting China and the role of the world’s second largest economy on international business today. Company site visits and other networking opportunities allow students to apply theories learned in class and contextualize the country’s economic rise within China’s largest business hub. Students investigate pressing business issues and trends with some of China’s most respected professors, such as Oliver Yang, the corporate social responsibility and government relations manager for the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.
