I am so excited to take part in the Global Immersion Program in Shanghai next week! This is my first time participating in a Chazen program and I’m glad I could check this off my CBS bucket list before graduating in May.
In our class sessions with Professor Shang-Jin Wei, we’ve been discussing how China is at crossroads after more than 30 years of rapid growth. It has been interesting to learn about how China is attempting to adapt its growth model to be driven more by consumption, innovation, and domestic demand. Now we are off to Shanghai for a week where we will meet with business leaders from China Ting, Chongyang Investment Company, PayPal, Wanxiang, and Rio Tinto. The week will definitely be action-packed but I am looking forward to it. I will be posting throughout the week – happy spring break, everyone!
