The Benedictine University China Institute will host its inaugural Business Culture Series, “How To Do Business in China,” at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 on the second floor of the Krasa Student Center. The keynote speakers will be Dr. Yuhou Wu, president of Shenyang Jianzhu University, and Dr. Dayu Zhao, president of Shenyang Normal University. Both universities are located in Shenyang, a city of about 7.2 million people in northeast China. Benedictine University was the first American university to receive permission to offer a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and Master of Science in Management Information Systems (M.S.M.I.S.) in northeast China. More than 100 students from China received their master’s degrees at Benedictine’s 114th Commencement ceremonies on May 20, 2007. Benedictine University established the China Institute to promote and coordinate its activities in China as well as encourage and recruit students in the United States to attend programs offered in China. Five American Benedictine students are currently studying in China. “How To Do Business in China” will run from 2:00-4:00 p.m. with a reception to follow from 4:00-5:00 p.m. The cost is $35 per person.
