What Have Students Said About This Program?
"The Shanghai course provided an exceptional view of the Chinese business environment and how it intersects with culture and government. We were afforded exclusive opportunities to meet with top management teams of banks, media groups, development companies and start-ups. The insights I gained on this trip will certainly serve me well as a future manager in a global context."
"The China course allowed me not only to learn so much about the Chinese power house, but also to establish some important connections with Darden alumni, CEIBS students and speakers that I'd had never be able to do so by myself."
