Program Description:

The China Business School, brought to you by CBL International, is an exciting, short-term study abroad program in two of the most influential cities in China, Shanghai and Beijing. Shanghai, sometimes referred to as the New York of China, is one of the world's fastest growing financial centers. While Beijing, the capital of China, is a historical city where major political meetings and decisions are made.

This three-week program will introduce you to the business culture of China where you wil receive lectures by well-qualified professors (local and international), visits to successful businesses and corporations, and partake in organized tours to famous attractions and landmarks. It's a well-balanced program that offers an in-depth insight into the business culture of China from various angles.

Lectures will be hosted by two of the most renowned education institutions in China, namely Tonji University in Shanghai and Tsinghua University in Beijing. Topics covered will include Intercultural Management, How to Setup a Business in China, China Taxation including Corporate Tax, Cross-Border Trade, and International Taxation Related to China, and Intellectual Property Rights.

Beyond the theories you'll discover in our cutting-edge lectures, you'll have the chance to visit local businesses and international cooperations in China such as Price Waterhouse Cooper, Deloitte, Fedex, European Chamber of Commerce, and more. Each company visit will include a tour of the company with meetings and opportunities to interact with CEOs, management level employees, and owners. It's really the ultimate solution for understanding the day-to-day workings of conducting business in China.

Of course, it's not called studying abroad without sightseeing and visiting tourist attractions! During your stay in Shanghai, you'll have access to the infamous Big Bus Tours where you can visit nearly every landmark such as the Yu Gardens, the Shanghai Bund, and more on your own schedule. While in Beijing, walk on the Great Wall of China, one of the 7 wonders of the world, and explore the Forbidden City, the home to prior Emperors of China. At night, check out the local night scene or mingle with your newly made friends and classmates.

Although the China Business School program is only three weeks, the experience and network you will gain will last a lifetime. We're proud to say that many of our alumni have deemed their three weeks in China one of the most memorable experiences in their lives.
