North Park University group spends 10 days in China
According to PriceWaterhouseCoopers’ 2011 report, “The World in 2050,” the global financial crisis has led to shifts in economic power across the globe. Furthermore, the professional services company projected that by 2050, China will have surpassed the U.S. in terms of economic strength. As China becomes an increasingly important player in global affairs, business students who are studying at Christian universities may want to learn as much as they can about this country.
Recently, a group of students, faculty and alumni from s School of Business and Nonprofit Management made a trip overseas to China, the Christian university’s website reported. During their 10-day trip, these individuals had an opportunity to observe China’s growing economy first hand. ‘
“It was an eye-opening experience and it puts everything else in perspective,” said Gerardo Soto, a North Park master of business administration student, as quoted by the website.
During the trip, the group spent time exploring Hong Kong and Guangzhou, and had a chance to meet with officials from such companies as Bank of Montreal and United Airlines.
While not all Christian colleges and universities offer opportunities like this, it is important for students to find a school that can provide them with a fulfilling educational experience.
