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

Beth and I have endowed a Hartwick scholarship in the name of my parents. I, like so many of our own students, was a first generation student. My parents did not have the opportunity to go to college, but they made sure that I did. The Campaign for Hartwick Students creates opportunities for everyone who benefitted from the generosity of others to give back. That is what I feel we are doing through our endowed scholarship fund at Hartwick. I often ask our alumni and many College friends, ‘Who helped you?’ Someone helped each one of us reach our goals and define our dreams. Now it’s our turn.
