China now accounts for more than 20% of the world’s overall economic growth. This new global economic tiger is awake, and actively establishing business operations internationally.
As the natural gateway for Asian businesses entering the United States, Chinese companies are already in San Francisco, looking for talent and opportunities. In recognition of this fact, in November 2008, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced the opening of ChinaSF, a business office in Shanghai for the city's Office of Economic Development that aims to help Chinese businesses relocate to San Francisco.
The University of San Francisco has created the new Globalization of Chinese Business curriculum to help you benefit from the opportunities being created as a result of this trend. We can provide you with the academic grounding, practical skills, cultural insights, and valuable connections that will enable you to participate and succeed in this coming business reality.
As a leading educational institution in San Francisco — which has had a large Chinese community for over 150 years — we have a long-standing intimacy with this rich and complex culture. You will study with Mandarin-speaking USF professors who know the inner workings of the Chinese business culture—and who are currently engaged in internationally recognized academic research into Sino-American development and opportunities.
- Get real-world experience working with Chinese government officials and industry leaders
- Find out about the latest trends in the Chinese economy, business environment, and government
- Learn the Mandarin language, and gain a thorough understanding of Chinese culture through inter-disciplinary courses offered by the College of Arts & Sciences
“You can read the paper any day of the week and see the amazing increases in China’s overseas investments. At USF — with our Globalization of Chinese Business program — we feel that we’re on the crest of a tremendous wave.”
