China Business Program

The China Business Program (CBP) is designed to better prepare students for entry into an increasingly globalized workplace by developing an understanding of the culture and customs of China through language study, overseas experience, and associated coursework.  The program will help develop students' critical thinking and contextual skills by allowing students to study and personally experience the rapid pace of economic development and social change in China and Asia.
