China Entrepreneurship Program

If you’re a budding entrepreneur looking for some inspiration, where better than one of the fastest-growing nations on earth? Join us in two of China’s most influential cities this summer and spend 14 days immersing yourself in the culture and language whilst learning what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur in China’s booming economy.

 

Learn from An Expert

Our 14-day immersion program begins in Shanghai and ends in Beijing, where you’ll discover the Chinese language, culture and cuisine. In each city, you’ll visit different companies and meet talented entrepreneurs who have successfully built and run businesses of various sizes in China. They will give lectures covering important topics such as how to start your own business in China and the key differences between running a business in the East and West.

 

You will also take part in a business workshop, designed to teach you the valuable skills needed to succeed as an entrepreneur. This will be concluded with an independent project, during which you’ll put what you’ve learned into practice.

 

Cultural Activities, Sightseeing & Classes

Between attending lectures and taking part in project work, you’ll experience the best Beijing and Shanghai have to offer in the safe hands of our experienced team. You’ll visit iconic attractions like the Bund, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and more. You’ll also take part in a carefully selected range of cultural activities designed to give you a taste of authentic Chinese culture and traditions. These include calligraphy, cooking demonstrations and mah-jong classes.

 

During the Entrepreneurship Program, students will attend 2 Chinese language classes. Learning with our highly-qualified native teachers, you’ll quickly pick up some basics to help enrich your experience.
