Insights on China & Emergency Market

Many students come to China with a Chinese dream. The experiences of the graduates teach us that the keys to the success of Chinese dreams are to grasp basic Chinese language and understand Chinese culture, society and economy. In this case, we design the program to help you get insights into the Chinese market, increase your
Chinese market sensitivity, and grasp the opportunities in China by offering subjects, such as Chinese language, culture, philosophy, society, business codes, and business etiquette, all of which will be covered to your competitive advantages.

Such a unique global learning environment will enhance your inter-culture skills, the skills demanded by every company today and help you build up a global network of friends.

Service Learning Nurturing Model

Service Learning is a new education model popular in western countries. It is a method of teaching that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service. It emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility (Wikipedia). We adapted this latest education model for you to gain more insights of Chinese society as well as increase you sense of social responsibility as a future businessman/businesswoman.
We combined community service with business projects, offering events such as "Marketing projects for Social Enterprise of Chi Heng Foundation", aim to enhance students' understanding of social responsibilities as well as business skills.

Innovation orientation

Innovation, defined by Wikipedia, "is the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs". We believe that future businessmen/businesswomen should be innovative to be successful. With such belief, we design the program to teach you to be more creative from different aspects.
We cooperated with the Science of the Time (scienceofthetime.com), one of the first and most reputed trend research and innovation agencies in the world. We offer a course on innovation.  We encourage and guide students to be creative in running the student association. All in all is for the purpose to increase your competitive advantage when you step into the job market.
