Study Abroad:

Business in China

The Carson College of Business China program is offered in Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan Province. Located in southwestern China, Chengdu is a key metropolitan business and cultural center. You’ll take required core and elective business classes alongside Chinese students from Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE).

“Studying in China helped me grow both personally and professionally. I was able to experience a completely different culture, travel throughout Asia and meet a lot of new people. When it came time for me to go through the job interview process, studying business in such a unique location really set me apart from other students. Interviewers consistently brought up how much my study abroad experience stood out to them and they wanted to hear about my time in China. Furthermore, this trip helped me learn more about developing strong interpersonal relationships with people of different cultures and belief systems, which is invaluable in the workplace. I highly recommend this program as the perfect blend between professional/resume enhancement and an amazing travel opportunity that really adds to your college experience.”
