The China Business Certificate Program is an excellent complement to any business major in the Farmer School of Business. The knowledge and experiences you acquire while completing the certificate program will give you a competitive edge in the job market and prepare you for your career in business.

The certificate program provides a foundation on which to build your understanding of China's role in the global economy. Your experience studying or interning in China will also develop valuable soft skills that employers are looking for, such as adaptability, problem-solving, and communicating with others who are different from you. Upon completion of the certificate, you will have a nuanced comprehension of the Chinese culture, language, and business practices. As the job market becomes increasingly competitive, these skills will set you apart from your peers!
