In 2013, Antai College of Economics and Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, established the Antai Global Summer Program (AGSP) to satisfy the growing need of helping international students understand China from business perspectives. AGSP is a three-week-long, credits-conferring, English-taught summer program focusing on Learning Business and Culture in China. Approximately 100 students from over 20 countries joined each cohort. The Program holds two separate sessions in May and July each year, in order to match the summer-break calendars at different schools.
Participants will gain a deep understanding of the Chinese economy and culture with in-class coursework, company visits, social events and tours. In addition to having faculty who teach in top business schools around the world, the summer program features sessions taught by executive speakers including senior knowledge expert of top-brand MNCs, executives of successful Chinese enterprises, founders of start-up companies and so on.
“ I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the program and faculty at SJTU was. It was probably one of the best experiences of my life. The only downside was the short duration of the program. The quality of the presentation, professors, company visits, campus, lodging, and cultural excursions is truly phenomenal. “-- By Aldo Martinez [USA]
“ We went to companies that are fully private-owned, state-controlled and a couple of multi-national companies. To see the differences and how they operate in China was extremely interesting. The cultural visits were all great. The one that really worked for me was visiting the local Chinese family and having dinner with them. It gives you excellent insights into what life is like for average middle-class Chinese people. “---- By Mohammed Al Kharusi [Oman]
