As part of Lehigh University’s Getting to Global initiative, the CBE is proud to offer a global lab in Shanghai, China to qualified CBE students this year. This is an unprecedented opportunity for CBE students to immerse in on-location seminars, company visits, and cultural experiences that apply and extend our 100-level core curriculum in China – a significant part of our global economy.

The program includes one week in Shanghai and the surrounding area, with seminars by local experts, case-studies, and company visits that connect Lehigh’s powerful 100-level core to application in China. Led by a CBE Professor  Oliver Yao on location in China, students will participate in a two-credit business elective designed exclusively for CBE sophomores and juniors. Enrollment in the program includes pre-trip seminars at Lehigh in the fall and access to online language basics to prepare participants to get the most from the upcoming trip. On-site seminars will be conducted at Tongji University in Shanghai, with housing adjacent to campus. Cultural experiences range from local shopping to visiting “must-see” sights that students will enjoy as a Lehigh group.
