China is one of the world's fastest-growing economic powers, which makes it an excellent place to study international business transactions. Students will live in Beijing, the capital of the People’s Republic of China, where all major government offices, including the Chinese Supreme Court, are located. Many of China’s largest state-owned companies, as well as international corporations and law firms, have their headquarters in the city. Beijing is the cultural center for Chinese politics, economics and education. It is a bustling city with a thriving population of approximately 19 million people. Students will have the opportunity to explore China’s ancient history — the forbidden city, great wall, Ming tombs, and many other important attractions, alongside modern developments like the Olympic Stadium.
- Lectures by legal scholars experienced in international and comparative law.
- Students can participate in visits to local cultural sites and legal institutions such as the International Arbitration Association, the Supreme Court of China, the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City.
- Excellent match of location and theme.
- UIBE is known for its academic rigor and for producing leading government officials responsible for China’s economic power.
