Walk along the Great Wall of China, wander through the Museum of the Terra-Cotta Army and visit Jin Mao Tower and the Forbidden City. Exploring the rich culture and deep history of China plays a vital part in understanding China’s recent emergence as a global economic power, which is the main focus of the Anne Arundel Community College travel-study course, “Doing Business in China.”
Limited seating remains for the trip, scheduled May 22-June 6. While registration for spring classes has not begun, preparation for the trip is beginning now. Interested participants should contact the office for the college’s business and economics departments, 410-777-2390, for information or to sign up.
Bill P. Yuan, AACC assistant professor of business management, also led a similar trip to China in May 2008 and is the lead instructor on this trip. By viewing the inner workings of the local business environment in three key Chinese cities — Beijing, Xian and Shanghai, participants can see the ways in which China’s image is growing in today’s business world.
The trip is just one part of the travel-study course that is offered for credit and noncredit. The cost depends on the option participants take and ranges from $3,257 to $3,503. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.
