Seven faculty from the Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business, led by Dr. Chen, will travel to China throughout the semester to teach the intensive program, along with faculty from SJTU. Courses taught by Shenandoah faculty will be conducted in English and simultaneously translated into Mandarin. The coursework consists of core business curriculum in key areas. Students will also obtain a Chief Executive Officer training certificate and participate in executive lecture series sponsored by Shanghai partners. In addition, the GET-MBA program offers high-value experiences outside the classroom, including large networking gatherings and alumni events.

The Chinese students in the program seek a quality education that strengthens their business acumen and provides an elite platform for professional networking, according to Dr. Chen.Starting this fall, Shenandoah University is offering two new Chinese-centric courses.

Introductory Mandarin teaches the basics of Chinese language to students.

The First-Year Seminar Chinese Cultural Immersion course provides insights into China’s past, present and future, including its culture, geography, botany, literature, customs, architecture, traditions, religions, and more. The course will include a trip to Chinatown in Washington, D.C., and hands-on activities such as the preparation of traditional Chinese food and making Chinese lanterns.

Professors Haixia Zhag and Qingyan Duan, both of Yangtze Normal University (YZNU) in the central part of China, will teach the course. Shenandoah has established a collaborative relationship with the Chinese university, which will send professors to America to teach the courses on a regular basis. These faculty members will be sponsored by both YZNU and China’s Ministry of Education.Chen is hopeful this partnership with Yangtze Normal University will promote an ongoing educational exchange relationship with Shenandoah.
