Economic Policy and Agribusiness in China


Join us in this Maymester Study Abroad program to visit the largest and fastest growing market for the US agricultural exports. The program is aimed to provide students interested in international agribusiness and economic policy with an opportunity to learn China's agricultural policy, experience firsthand the interconnected trade ties between US and China, and explore what it takes for US companies to succeed in China.  The program will include trips to Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, and other major cities in China. We will visit US companies and trade associations involved in international trade of agricultural commodities. You will have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with students of Chinese universities.  Cultural and tourist destinations include Beijing's Hutong, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Shanghai's financial street, and the Great Wall of China.
