Over half a decade, the United States, European Union, and many other developed countries have been quite active in encouraging and supporting the students for the international study tour, which are believed to be very useful and necessary part in training the truly global talents. However, very few students from developing countries have the opportunity for this kind of experience due to the financial constraint. Furthermore, most of the international study tours still target the English-speaking developed countries, mostly in the U.S., U.K., and Australia. In contrast, many other countries are seldom included in the destinations available, regardless of the diverse culture, unique economic model, and great market potential.
With the Belt & Road initiative, we believe there will be more economic and business cooperation among the B&R countries. Students should learn more about those countries, including the economy, business, and culture etc. Therefore, we initiate a series of short-term study tours to help more students gain the international experience in China and many other B&R countries, such as Cambodia, Russia, Germany etc. Our program will be offered in cooperation with over 400 partner universities and colleges all over the world, mostly the best in their country, therefore ensuring the highly localized and colorful culture experiences, the most informative and enlightening business lectures, under the supervision of the international management team.
