International Business Seminar in China
Study Abroad this summer with the NIU Study Abroad Office and the NIU College of Business. Earn 3-6 credit hours from this 3-week program in China.
The overall purpose of this seminar is to provide participants an opportunity to be exposed to the international business environment and practices outside the United States. In addition, this seminar provides participants an opportunity to develop insights into the cultural, social, and political environment of China. Participation in an International Business Seminar is a unique way for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in international business, or a related field, to acquire a firsthand view of international business practices, and experience the excitement of traveling outside the United States.
The seminar has approximately nine formal visits which will average about three hours each day. The type of presentation will vary from company to company; however, almost all presentations will include input by management personnel. The sessions may include lectures, panel discussions, plant tours, or some combination of all these elements. Past experience has shown that students learn a great deal from the question/answer session which is a part of each visit; thus, students' questions are highly encouraged. In addition, there are group meetings with faculty that average two hours each and organized tours as well as faculty-directed instruction during coach travel times between destinations.
