Global Programming Expands with Hong Kong Study Abroad

The summer of 2015 marked the inaugural offering of the program, Strategic Management: An Asian Perspective, a study abroad program that took 24 students to Hong Kong for five weeks.. Students took classes in strategic management and intercultural communications, and had the opportunity to participate in several company visits, including trips to Estée Lauder’s Asian headquarters as well as to Colgate-Palmolive’s Hong Kong offices.

“The students had a truly immersive and expansive experience,” said Monija Amani, Senior Assistant Dean and director of the program.  “Not only did students earn academic credit towards graduation, but studied alongside Chinese students, immersed themselves in Chinese culture and came away with new friendships.  We look forward to many more successful summers in Hong Kong.”
