Mandarin Chinese & China Business Program Overview

Study Chinese While Learning to Do Business in China!

Learn how to conduct business and communicate fluently with the world's fastest growing economy by joining PRC Study's Mandarin Chinese and China Business program.

Designed especially for foreign participants due to their growing interest in the revolutionary development of China's economy resulting from the reforms and open-door policy, WTO accession, and the 2008 Olympics, this program is excellent for those who want to learn more about doing business in China while studying the Mandarin Chinese language.

China, a country with phenomenal economic growth and reigning as the world's leader in attracting the most foreign direct investment, is now considered a critical component in the global strategy for companies around the world. Showing a thriving economy with healthy GDP growth rates over the years, coupled with political stability, budding industry sectors, fast developing human resources, and exploding consumer wealth, many foreign companies, both large and small, are making their footprint by investing or setting up offices in China.

As a result, an ever-increasing number of foreigners are coming to China to learn more about the country, its language, culture, economy and business practices. Foreigners who are fluent in Chinese and knowledgeable about the China market are in great demand globally, especially in the business realm and government sectors. The Mandarin and China Business program will allow you to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge essential to work or do business in China.

Aims & Goals

Conducted in English and organized by PRC Study in association with our partnering universities, the China Business component is a short intensive course comprised of lectures, seminars and discussions, and onsite visits which are designed to compliment students' Mandarin Chinese language studies in China.

The China Business component offers a practical and insightful examination into China's dynamic business structure, including its current and historical economic, political, legal, social and cultural environments.

The China Business lectures are given by university business professors or experts in the field. Seminars are conducted by senior representatives of both foreign and local companies. On-site visits extend learning beyond the classroom to offer an insightful examination into the day-to-day and overall business operations of a variety of foreign and local Chinese companies in China.

The Mandarin language instructions will enable students to learn all aspects of the Chinese language which includes phonetics, listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension in order that they may communicate competently and effectively with local native Chinese people.

After completion of this program, participants will:

  • Have a better comprehension of the Mandarin Chinese language
  • Have a broad and thorough concept of how foreign and local Chinese businesses of all sizes operate in China
  • Possess information and knowledge about the various "hot" industries fueling China's dynamic growth
  • Understand the differences between western and Chinese business practices, including rules, regulations, and law
  • Be able to secure an immediate advantage for employment opportunities
  • Be better equipped with information required for starting a business or working in China
  • Have solidified valuable Chinese and foreign relationships (Guanxi) via extensive networking opportunities
By immersing students in class instructions, after-class tutorials, elective workshops, language exchange, social activities, guided tours, onsite visits, and business and networking events, our proven methodology will allow students to develop Chinese language skills for effective communication with Chinese people and acquire critical business knowledge required for successful business interactions in China.

However, some Chinese embassies and consulates may issue an L Visa, a tourist visa, despite the actual purpose of travel. In other scenarios students may be issued an X Visa, requiring also the student to undergo a physical health examination. In any event, the type of visa issued is determined by the Chinese authorities, but PRC Study will assist students to extend or convert visas as required after arrival into China.

Once full program fees are paid and enrollment completed, PRC Study will send you all the required documents so that you may apply for a visa to enter the People's Republic of China at the Chinese embassy or consulate in your home country.
