The campaign for Hartwick students

China: Doing Business in Asia

Location: Shanghai, Qingdao, and Beijing

Course: BUSA 350, offered every other year

Meetings, seminars, and tours focus on manufacturing, retailing, and service industries for multi-national corporations, U.S. companies, Chinese-owned enterprises, and joint ventures. Students explore contemporary political and economic facets of the business environment, as well as the social and ethical aspects of economic development. The course features a residency at one of China's premier institutions, Ocean University, where Hartwick students join some of Ocean's 20,000-plus students to take classes with their professors and interact with them socially at the ocean-side resort city of Qingdao. The experience will begin with a tour of the financial center of China, Shanghai, and ends with several days in China's political and cultural center, its capital Beijing. In addition to the many business-related sites, the group visits important cultural sites including the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. This is a unique and exceptional opportunity to experience this fascinating country.

Instructor: Professor of Business Administration & Accounting and Acting Department Chair Stephen A. Kolenda, CPA
Length of program: 23 days

My experience at Hartwick College would not have been possible without the scholarships that I received. If I had the opportunity to thank the people who donated to those scholarships, I’d take them to my cabin at Pine Lake, make them a cup of Malian tea, show them my pictures, and just try to communicate what the past four years have meant to me because it’s been incredible and I am so happy I was able to be here.
