Program Summary & Location

A combination of pre-departure lessons, on-site lectures, and tours of important business and cultural sites will give participants an overview of China today.
The main part of the program will be hosted by Jinan University-Zhuhai campus, located on the southern coast of China on the Pearl River Delta. The location of Zhuhai, along with the deep-water port makes it a major attraction for foreign capital. There will be business and cultural visits in Zhuhai and its surrounding area.
