2. Leadership & Career Development (Sustainability and Business Leadership, Strategic Leadership, Stories from China Silicon Valley)
3. Trending topics (Cyber security, China social media, Aerospace Industry, Data)
4. Traditional and Modern China (Live and interactive visit to the Great Wall and other sites, high tech companies visits to learn about China’s technology development)
Students will learn about cutting-edge technologies and get a more in-depth understanding of innovation needs in local markets, enabling them to better adapt to the ICT industry.
The programme will be 8 days long, up from 5 last year and this year, they have added the Tech4Good Group Project to the curriculum. In addition to classes, small work groups are organised to encourage multi-cultural learning environment, to foster creativity and innovation and to trigger discussions on how to leverage technology to address social and/or environmental issues.
Students are also encouraged to join the LinkedIn alumni community to be part of a network of international students and teachers from around the world, where they can keep the conversation going, and be invited to exclusive events (e.g. webinars).
