Webster China MBA Tour Connects Students with D.C. Industries
Sep. 3, 2015
The Washington Study Tour from July 26 to July 31, 2015 was an opportunity for students, alums and staff in Webster China's Joint MBA programs to focus on business and economic issues vital to China, the U.S. and the rest of the world while connecting with leaders from finance, economic policy and other industries throughout the national capital region.
Months before this group of MBA students from Webster’s SUFE and UESTC joint programs took off for the U.S., they examined the issues making the U.S. more economically attractive, and at the same time, considered important issues in China that might be compared to U.S. experiences.
Among the visits on the tour:
- An opening day with speakers from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Group
- Lawrence Yun, nationally known economist who focuses on the U.S. real estate market, hosted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR)
- Engineer Brad Clark of NAR, who showed the group NAR's LEED-platinum certified Washington headquarters
- An afternoon with Washington Beltway Consultants, organized by Sean Coleman, director of Webster's National Capital Region campus locations. Coleman assembled a full panel of expert speakers on real estate, investment instruments and valuation.
- A lecture at George Washington University by Neil George, financial analyst and an alumnus of Webster through its European campuses
- Speakers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on how its organic program operates
