in the modern city of Tianjin, the fourth largest city in China, students
experience the old and the new and work with Chinese students in English to
build a real business plan for a real product from Florida. Students will take
two classes for credit: Small Business Management (SMB 2000) and Introduction
to Chinese Culture (IDS 1195) for a total of six credit hours. Students
will also travel within Tianjin and to other cities to enjoy China’s culture
and history. Students will be offered Tai Chi lessons each week and can attend
a session on preparing Chinese Dumplings, a musical performance and a
TCC team travels to Beijing for the weekend (includes the Great Wall, Forbidden
City, Tiananmen Square, and one night in a four-star hotel). The second
out-of-town excursion will be to either Xi'an, the ancient capital of China and
home of the Terracotta Warriors or to Shanghai for an overnight stay and then
on to one of the famous water towns or villages outside of Shanghai for the
evening. A third excursion may include travel to Mount Panshan and stay overnight
in a farmer’s village.
“The experiences TCC
students receive by working with teams of Chinese students open minds and
provide a perspective they could never obtain in just a classroom environment,”
said program director Lee Kitchen.
