Insights into China’s cultural and economic diversity for FHNW students

30 students and lecturers from the FHNW Schools of Business, Engineering, Life Sciences and applied Psychology visited China for 17 days as part of Insight China 2017

The student-organised study trip mainly focused on transferring knowledge between senior executives, government officials, Chinese universities and FHNW students. This has been an outstanding learning experience, including onsite visits to companies, public institutions and universities. The project, in its 16th year is a highlight for those who are trying to expand their own horizons in a unique way and who would like to discover how Chinese do business in reality.

In addition to the business programme, the students have had the chance to experience ´´Chinese culture and the local lifestyle´´, by visiting the Temple of Heaven, the Great Wall of China in Beijing, trying traditional Chinese food and exploring Beijing, Lanzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Guangzhou and Wuxi. They have also had the opportunity to exchange knowledge with Chinese students, look at innovative technologies and a lot more.

 

‘‘Insight China 2017 was an extraordinary and unforgettable trip. It was perfectly organized and a good mix between impressive foreign culture and insights into innovative companies. And it was far more; it was a journey of surprises and emotions. As a smoothly functioning team we mastered challenging official and nightly events. It was great to be part of this Insight China team!’’
Prof. Dr. Alex Ringenbach, FHNW School of Life Sciences.

What is Insight China

Insight China is a prestigious project in its 16th anniversary year at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) and offers ambitious students the opportunity to gain insights into China’s cultural and economic diversity. By promoting exchange between professionals and students, both sides benefit from each other through the combination of theory and practical experience. The aim is the transfer of knowledge between the delegation of students and the companies that are involved in the project to create and strengthen the foundation of doing business in China.

Insight China is one of four international student projects organized annually by the FHNW School of Business bachelor students. Read the joint magazine NEXUS.
