“A once in a life time opportunity, which left me striving for more. The entire program gave a new-dawn understanding of China, from the socio-cultural to the entrepreneurial. The company visits gave an insight into how business and entrepreneurships work in China compared to other parts of the world. They showed the potential that they possess to dominate the global market. The cultural visits, in turn gave a brief history on how the brilliant city of Hangzhou had a profound impact on modern China.”

Adam Oskarsson, Sweden, '16 Graduate

“Fantastic three weeks, with helpful and cheerful professors, mentors and volunteers. The survival china lectures were probably among the most fun lectures, and the ordinary lectures provided good knowledge with great importance for entrepreneurship. Among the best regions I have ever been to, with nice people and much to explore and see. The West Lake and the surroundings is one unique experience!”
