Overall Experience
This program was incredible. Not only did we meet many amazing global companies, we were able to be fully submerged into the culture. The small group of kids was spectacular as we all were able to stick together and enjoy every moment. - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review

I learned a great deal about Hong Kong and the companies that operate there. It is a very different business landscape, that partially merges Western and Asian business norms and cultures. - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review

About

Many U.S. enterprises have expanded to Hong Kong, one of the great trading cities of the world, and the nearby Guangdong Province due to the strong growth in the Chinese economy. It is impossible to discuss business operations without talking about China and the country’s impact on the global economy. You will learn how both service and manufacturing businesses operating in China design their operational strategies to manage their supply chain, distribute goods, meet competitive global standards, and achieve quality and productivity goals. You will research, visit, and interview businesses across different industries in the city of Hong Kong and Guangdong Province on China’s mainland, to better understand how these enterprises operate. 

This program is hosted by the Asia Institute. Over the past ten years, the Asia Institute has become a leading host partner for many educational institutions supporting short-term programs in Asia. More information about the Asia Institute can be found at www.asiainstitute.org
