Aside from learning about the culture and business environment of China, being in the Guanghua MBA exchange program is a truly international experience: of the approximately 30 other students on my program, only one is from the US (NYU-Stern). The majority are from Europe, Canada, or other countries in the Sinosphere (Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan).
The highlight of my week is Managing Multi National Corporations, a strategy class that looks at recent situations multi-national corporations have faced in China. For my team of 3 Chinese MBA students, this is their first class that uses business cases- in China traditionally even MBA courses are taught only through lectures.
One class offered to IMBA students is History and Cultural Traditions of China. While not really a business class per se, knowing about the cultural underpinnings of Chinese society is exceedingly important to working with Chinese partners and customers.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to study in Beijing, and hope that we get some more Kelley students at PKU next year! Please get in touch if you have any questions.
