I found that visiting all different types of companies was very rewarding. We didn't have an emphasis for the program so we visited many different companies from supply chain to accounting to manufacturing and everything in between. I learned a lot about business in China and how they relate to the US.
Walking the Great Wall was definitely the most amazing part of the trip! The views were breathtaking!
My favorite part of this experience was being able to travlel to a part of the world I wouldn't have ever thought to visit on my own. Also, this program made sure to educate the student on China's culture, not just all about business.
