Study Abroad in China

International Business and Economics in China

Program Overview

SHSU’s College of Business is pleased to offer a Summer I program in Beijing, China. We will be located on the campus of the China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing (CUMTB).  Not only will this be a high-impact academic experience related to business in Asia's largest economy, we will also take several cultural trips to include the Mong Tombs, the Great Wall, Tiannamen Square, Heaven’s Temple, and the Summer Palace.  Numerous business tours will also be conducted that will directly apply to the material taught in a way that could never be experienced in Texas.

Students from CUMTB will also participate in the SHSU courses, giving our students the opportunity for daily intercultural exchange!
