About

Get a frontline view of the fast-evolving Chinese marketplace and the social effects of this rapid change with the help of a New York Times expert. In Shanghai, learn the political, financial and cultural foundations of China’s economy and participate in a weeklong business internship. Continue to Hong Kong, where the future of China’s experiment with capitalism is well under way.

China may soon overtake the United States as the world’s biggest economy, but there are also consequences to growth: economic inequality, environmental degradation and political graft are widespread as “capitalism with Chinese characteristics” evolves. Begin to understand China’s economic history in Shanghai with visits to offices of U.S. and Chinese corporations and small-scale businesses, and later, in a weeklong internship with a Shanghainese or multinational company. Wrap up in Hong Kong, whose economy and regulatory policies are in vivid contrast to those of mainland China. Take a day trip to nearby Shenzhen, known as China’s “Silicon Valley,” and learn about the supply chain in the world’s largest and innovative manufacturing center. You don’t have to speak Mandarin, though you may pick some up.
