Course Description 

Through this hybrid course students develop a cultural awareness of China and an appreciation of the numerous challenges in the global IT business and management field.  Significant technological advancements in China are studied, and the way in which the culture may impact the deployment of these advancements is examined.  The challenges faced by ‘start-up’ businesses, local Chinese companies, as well as multi-national corporations are explored to provide an understanding of the dynamic business environment of the country.  On-site visits to both US and Chinese companies, such as Microsoft Beijing, Oracle, IBM, Founder, and China Mobile facilitate a first-hand business knowledge and direct cultural experience of the region. This course encourages students to interact directly with business professionals, and motivates undergraduate and graduate research projects. Cultural activities typically include visits to the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Olympic Park, and the Ming Tomb.
