Overview of the study tour experiences

During our 9 days study tour in China, we gained a deeper understanding of Chinese culture, Chinese educational and economical environment. Based on the purpose and based on the itinerary, we divided China study tour into 3 kinds of visit : Universities visit, Enterprises visit, and real-life experiences visit.

Hebei University Visit

Hebei University of Economics and Business is a University in Hebei, China under the provincial government. It is located in Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei Province, P.R.China. It has four campuses.

After exchanging short introduction of 2 universities – Hebei and PiMSR - we joined a lecture from Dean of Hebei University of Economics and Business. His speech of "Chinese Business Practices" gave us a deeper view of challenges and opportunities that most of Chinese firms are facing to and some suggestions to help them overcome the impact of global financial crisis. Also, it gave an insight on the differences of business practices in India and China. We interacted with students of Hebei University and get to know the education system prevailing in the country.

Besides having interactions with university in China, we also had some experiential learning from 4 enterprises visit including Blue Enamel Factory, Shijiazhuang Textile Factory, North China Pharmaceutical Company and Shanghai Volkswagen.
