Learning Expeditions

China

17 Tuck students participated in a 10-day learning expedition to China. The students visited four cities and eight organizations during spring break to learn about how business is currently conducted in the world's most populated country.

Beginning in Beijing, the students spent time exploring cultural sites of China's capital city before embarking on visits to companies located in Beijing, Hangzhou, Hohot, and Shanghai. They were accompanied by Tuck Assistant Professor of Business Administration Jackie Luan and Tuck Center for International Business Associate Director Lisa Miller. Among the companies they visited were Lenevo, Meng Niu (one of China’s largest dairy companies), Alibaba Group, and BMP Sunstone.

In addition to giving students valuable international business and cultural access, the trip gave them opportunities to welcome admitted students and meet with Tuck alumni at two planned receptions in Shanghai.

The China trip was the first of several learning expeditions Tuck's Center for International Business plans to offer. Each trip is expected to give students exceptional access to and understanding of the business environment of the host country.
