Professors Teach Intersession Classes in Hong Kong
|Message||USD's Charles Tu and Alan Gin, along with 40 undergraduate business students, recently returned from a study abroad trip to Hong Kong. The trip, which included excursions to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai and Macau, marked the first time that Tu had taught overseas and the 12th time for Gin. Through classroom work and cultural excursions, students were able to learn up-close the intricacies of doing business in China. |
Students took one of two course offerings on the trip, "Commercial Real Estate Finance and Investment," taught by Tu, or "Doing Business in China," taught by Gin. Classes were held on the campus of Hong Kong Baptist University in Kowloon.
To supplement the classroom material, Tu's class toured the Hong Kong office of CB Richard Ellis to visit with local real estate professionals and get first-hand information about local real estate markets. Additionally, both classes visited the production facilities of Cooper Lighting and Flextronics.
In addition to the academic and business aspects of the course, the students also were able to experience the cultural aspects of Hong Kong. The group visited popular tourist destinations in Hong Kong, including Victoria Peak, the Stanley Market, Happy Valley Racecourse, the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island and Lan Kwai Fong, among others.
