This is a 3-credit, Purdue faculty led course, when we spend 15 days during the second half of May in China. We travel through to Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Chongqing, Yichang, Langfang, and Shaoxing.
The current trend of globalization requires today and the future’s scientists, economists, and entrepreneurs to have a much better understanding of the world than ever before. China, with its rapid economic growth, has become very important in the world economy, and one of our largest partners and competitors in the world market. The goal of this course is to expose students to Chinese culture, economy and business with an emphasis on agriculture and food industry.
