Building trusting relationships requires an understanding of mind-set. With deep respect for Chinese cultural traditions, CI Business programs aim to increase your cross-cultural awareness and ability to engage with confidence, whether meeting with Chinese colleagues in New York, or undertaking business travel to China. Our hands-on cultural activities, and the cultural focus of our programs, will allow you to see China business in its human context, and become more successful.
This course is an intensive introduction to Chinese language, culture and business. Topics will include business protocol, food and restaurant etiquette, contemporary Chinese values systems and history highlights. Fundamental rules for doing business with Chinese will be discussed with case study illustrations. Participants will also enjoy two Chinese meals and a tea ceremony, and learn about their implications for business practice in China.
