WWU students soak up the culture and entrepreneurship of China through study abroad course

  • WWU students and IDEA Institute Director Art Sherwood take a break while walking along the Great Wall.
  • WWU students examine a model of the city of Hangzou.
  • WWU students attend a meeting at a silk fabric company in Shanghai.

Last summer, WWU students from the College of Business and Economics and Western's IDEA Institute attended a study abroad in China as part of the MGMT 337 course. The course was a focused cultural and business class, delivered in English by destination university professors, and was a joint entrepreneurship-oriented project providing an opportunity for students to interact closely with university students in Shanghai. There were field trips to visit an entrepreneurship incubation hub, a few start-ups, as well as cultural trips in the metropolitan city (Shanghai) and a cultural heritage site (Wuzhen). For more information about the trip or future study abroad trips with the IDEA Institute, contact them at ideainstitute@wwu.edu.
