Understand Technology in China

China is regarded as an important hub of technology growth and innovation. What's truly fascinating about it is the fact that the technology landscape, be it SaaS platforms, e-commerce, or even hardware, are significantly different in China as compared with the rest of the world. Our program will help you understand this truly unique technology ecosystem.

By participating in the program, your summer in China is not restricted to classroom learning and exploring cultural aspects of the country – they are definitely not enough for you to know or understand such an important market in depth. The second part of the program will let you experience the technology world in China by putting you in a group working on projects with a multi-national company or a dynamic startup for a four-week internship.

Highlights of the 2019 Technology and Startup Scene in China program:

  • Two-week study at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology where you will be immersed in a series of courses about tech and business in China which will be delivered by professors or highly experienced practitioners in the fields.
