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

Hartwick's support allowed me to realize my personal and professional goals. I want to ensure that present and future students will benefit from their Hartwick experience and take the skills, knowledge, and friendships they forged on Oyaron Hill with them on their continuing journey through life.
