The China Studies Program is an exciting opportunity for JBU students to study in Asia. Geared towards business majors but available to all, this program takes students to mainland China for four weeks. Students have the chance to get a close look at China's growing economy and to study Chinese business practices while trying new foods and exploring life in a different culture. Students will also be encouraged to discuss what they observe in light of their Christian faith.

The trip is led by Dr. Randall Waldron, a Fulbright Scholar who has lived and taught in China, first at Beijing Jiaotong University, and more recently in Yunnan Province at Honghe University. His work has also taken him to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. His experience in developing nations makes him the ideal guide for the China study program. This trip is a wonderful opportunity for business majors and anyone else interested in East Asia.
