China’s finance and banking industry is a booming and fast-paced environment that’s attracted the attention of companies around the world. This program offers you the unique opportunity to explore this exciting sector and learn how businesses operate and develop in the region. You’ll visit well-known local and international financial institutions and companies and hear the stories of industry experts and professionals who will share their stories and provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes look of the Chinese financial and banking sector.
Our summer program starts in one of China’s primary financial centers: Shanghai. With over 1,600 registered financial institutions in this metropolis, it’s a crucial economic hub home to the regional headquarters of many international banks and financial institutions. These are largely concentrated in its financial district East of the Huangpu River, known as Pudong.
Following your stay in Shanghai, you’ll journey to the capital Beijing, another financial heavy weight. Being China’s political and historical heart, it’s the focal point for national policies and regulations. Get an insight into the challenges of operating at the nation’s political center and discover what makes China’s financial world so different from the West. Meeting industry experts and professionals, you’ll hear their stories first-hand and visit companies to directly experience the local environment.
Not only will you get to connect with businesses and professionals, you’ll also learn about Chinese business culture and etiquette. All the information and skills you gain will later culminate in an independent project.
