This exciting faculty-directed study abroad program is open to all UND students regardless of major and offers an in-depth examination of China, a region of growing global importance. With special emphasis on the practical development of cross-cultural business skills, the program helps students gain an in-depth understanding of the language, history, politics, legal system, customs and cultures of China. 
Angela Harrison-Urlacher is the instructor for this program in which students play an active role in designing their own fieldwork projects and itineraries.
