Signature Events

China Trek

In collaboration with the Career Development Office, the China Trek is held for Chinese students to explore job opportunities, understand employment environment, and build social networks under the Chinese business environment. China Trek is held once a year at the beginning of each year. During the China Trek, students visit companies in different industries, learn company histories, job opportunities and cultures, and communicate with human resource employees face to face. Students prepared sufficiently enough might even be offered to interview with a company they meet!

The Intercultural program helps Asian students connect with students from different cultural backgrounds. One local American student will partner with one or more Asian students for the purpose of connecting students with different backgrounds at Carey and share interesting ideas around up-to-date topics.  Regular roundtable discussions are held to bring students together to share their perspectives on meaningful and enjoyable topics.

In a one-day conference, international business leaders from numerous industries from both China and the United States are invited to join the summit to discuss the most latest topics such as the utilization of technology in marketing, fintech, etc.
