I learned how life works in one of the largest and busiest cities in the entire world. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I gained a greater understanding of different cultures, not just of the host country, but of other Americans, and other countries. I learned how to use safely use public transportation methods to travel around. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Past Review Worth It!
Definitely worth it! - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing Shanghai
Studying in Shanghai was amazing and completely worthwhile. My Chinese improved substantially, and I made friends all over China as well as America that I plan to stay in touch with my whole life. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
Past Review China
This experience was far more than just worthwhile. I've learned a lot from it about China and I've grown as a person. Most notably, I've learned just how much American culture has influenced so much of the world. Before coming I obviously knew we had an influenced many cultures, but to see American culture so pervasive here w... - Goucher College View Entire Review
It made me learn that I want to go back and live and work in Shanghai. The world is huge, but somehow it's also exceptionally small. It's helped me understand how I want to gear my life and what I want to accomplish. I love Shanghai and sincerely miss it every single day. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review
Yes, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I learned differences between cultures, how to open up and interact with locals and I increased my language skills at least enough to get by. I just wish there was more emphasis on the language. I met people from other programs and they had at least 10-20 hours of language. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I learned to become extremely independent in a fast-paced environment. There were many take-aways from this experience: networks, life-long friends who I still skype on a monthly basis, traveling adventures/stories, and overall memories that benefited my college experiences. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
China was awesome but I feel like I kind of wasted a semester. I love learning and I barely learned anything during the semester. - Clemson University View Entire Review
Past Review
Probably the greatest decision I have made up to this point. I gained a better understanding of a culture. I gained a better understanding of what its like to live in a huge city. I learned how to live and travel on my own relying on myself to get around. I learned how to work through difficult situations when language barrie... - University of South Dakota View Entire Review

About

The Shanghai program is ideal for students who are interested in studying the economic and business environment of China and East Asia. Once a sleepy fishing town, Shanghai is now the hallmark of China’s booming economy. It is the perfect place for you to learn about the business environment of East Asia and study Chinese language. Mandarin is the official/standard dialect used in China, and Shanghai is a great place to practice it outside of class. While learning Chinese language and business logistics during the week, you will be able to take in dozens of art exhibitions, sport competitions, movies, museums, musical events, nightclubs, and more.  The Shanghai program offers an intensive language approach that allows you to complete up to one year of university foreign language coursework in only one semester. You may combine courses from the following subject areas: International Business and Intensive Chinese Language. These subject areas are not exclusive of one another so you may combine courses for up to a total of 18 credits. You can also choose to complete an internship, which provides an unmatched opportunity to practice your language skills and gain international business experience. You may choose to study for one semester, a full year or during the summer.
