4. Interested in International Trade, traveling to China and all while working on your Thesis?

A unique opportunity is being offered to UHC students planning to graduate in the Spring/Summer 2012.  In collaboration with the College of Business the UHC is seeking a team of four to six students interested in learning about international business practices.  The team will interview business executives and professionals in Oregon whose companies are involved in international trade particularly in the food industry, and then to travel to Shanghai, China for the week following finals in June of 2011 to conduct similar interviews of business executives and professionals in Chinese businesses who are involved in international trade with Oregon companies.  Based on their interviews and other investigations, the team will produce multimedia documents to be used in courses to raise awareness of problems and opportunities unique to international business.  Each team member may also use this experience as the foundation for their Honors thesis as they investigate an aspect of international business practices in more depth.  Students will be required to participate in a one credit HC 409: Practicum in the Winter 2011 term where they will develop interview skills, research the companies, and plan the post-interview production of materials.  

Costs of participation, including travel to Shanghai, are expected to be heavily subsidized by the College of Business and the University Honors College.  

Dr. Ping-Hung Hsieh in the College of Business will serve as the advisor for this project.   If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact either Professor Hsieh Ping-Hung.Hsieh@bus.oregonstate.edu.
