LC 284 - Learning Community: Business and Communication in China: Changes and Challenges

Three Credits
Not Offered 2016-2017

This is a travel LC designed to offer students not only a cross-disciplinary understanding of business and communication in modern China from a theoretical/conceptual perspective but also first-hand exposure to the changes and challenges China faces in business and communication. The LC will take students to China on a 10-day faculty-led trip in the spring semester. China has currently become a center of international business activities and is a driving force for global growth and integration. With its unprecedented social and economic transformation and its unique transition from a centrally-managed economy to a more market-based economy, China offers plenty of opportunities to see and learn about the social impact of its metamorphosis, from domestic and global perspectives.  While in China, students will attend lectures or seminars offered by business scholars and practitioners on the campus of the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE) in Beijing, and they will also participate in field trips to business operations and cultural and historical sites in Beijing and its vicinity.

Prerequisite(s): BUS 203  and COM 105 . Corequisite(s): Students must also take   and   as part of this Learning Community.
