Learn from An Expert

See 3 crucial Chinese logistics hubs with your own eyes on our Supply Chain and Logistics Program. Explore Shanghai, one of the busiest ports in the world and a technologically advanced and highly developed coastal metropolis. Then, venture to the Silicon Valley of China home to e-commerce heavyweight Alibaba; Hangzhou before heading to Beijing, which isn’t only the capital but also an in-land logistics stronghold.

 

The advanced digital developments of China’s eastern region mean the supply chain and logistics industry is becoming increasingly influenced by robotics and technological advancements. Our Summer Program offers you the chance to learn about these trends from an insider’s perspective, whilst witnessing them with your own eyes. Learn how foreign companies navigate the local environment and meet experts for some enlightening discussions. You’ll attend lectures, presentations and workshops designed to teach you more about both the industry and Chinese culture in general. Finally, you will put everything you’ve learnt into practice by participating in a business etiquette workshop and working on an independent project.
