Program Description:

CIEE Summer Business, Language, and Culture in Shanghai, China
Commercial giant; financial and cultural hub; the largest container port on Earth – there may be no better city to spend the summer examining the rapidly changing nature of global business than Shanghai.

Whether you have no background in Chinese, or you’ve studied the language for several semesters, this program provides students with vital insight into the causes behind – and challenges of – China’s rapid economic development and the country’s emerging role on the world stage.

With study abroad in China, you’ll spend the summer in a unique combination of in-depth coursework, internships, networking opportunities, cultural activities, and excursions. Study abroad in Shanghai and you will:

  • Choose from Chinese or English language business electives and engage in an organizational internship for credit
  • Study Mandarin Chinese at all levels with support from peer language tutors and language clinic instructors, or choose not to study a language and focus entirely on area studies coursework
  • Learn outside the classroom through volunteer opportunities, cultural activities, and a three-day fieldtrip with excursions to Chinese companies and factories
  • Live with a Chinese host family or on-campus with a Chinese or program roommate

An understanding of both Asian markets and culture is a tremendous asset for any future business professional. Take a closer look into the factors driving, and issues facing China with CIEE Shanghai.
