This 7-credit program allows students to study emerging markets in China. "Coggin In China" is a 4-week program at Beijing International Studies University in Beijing, China. Classes meet four days per week, which allows students 3-day weekends for travel and to get to know Beijing and China. All classes are taught in English. Classes will be held four or five days a week. The class schedule during the four weeks may vary, possibly including a long weekend. Included in the program cost are visits to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and Tiananmen Square.
