NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- China business has been a headline for years, with media coverage extending across the globe as people have watched China become an economic and political powerhouse. While markets have changed, and China's growth has slowed, it remains a global force and continues to offer opportunities to US businesses. The Chinese economy is set to surpass the US as the world's largest economy within the next 10 years. As the global economy pivots towards Asia, BRIC Language Systems continues to help American business people succeed in China. Its partnership with Shanghai Normal University in providing the highly popular Chinese Business and Language Course gives students practical business experience and the skills to succeed in a globalized world.
Because of the popularity of this course, an additional 30-person class has been added. This has allowed BRIC to extend the previous fall semester registration deadline, which was May 31, 2014, to July 31, 2014. Fall semester classes begin on September 8th, and end January 16th, 2015. The success of the program is due to BRIC's ability to grant a student visa, customization of course work, and job placement opportunities following completion of the course.
The program boasts China-centric business courses, Mandarin Chinese lessons, and a Chinese visa, giving students valuable entry into China. According to BRIC Language Systems founder & CEO, Ryan McMunn, the program gives "students the tools they need to be successful, including industry leading language courses, business insight, and working experience that will bolster anyone's resume." Business courses include Marketing in China, Chinese Trading & Investment or Chinese Financial Markets, and Chinese Law & Practice; a solid base for any individual that plans on including China as an integral part of their career.
The highly coveted Chinese student visa, allows students to legally study and reside in China. Visa regulations in China stiffened in 2013 as China cracked down on illegal workers and tourists overstaying their visas. The previously loose attitude towards tourist visas and short-term business visas has been replaced with a strict stance, making the guarantee of having a hassle-free, genuine visa rare. "The partnership with Shanghai Normal University has allowed us to offer a great education, at a competitive price, while adding value with the ability to grant student visas," says Mike Lee of BRIC Language Systems Shanghai Office.
Founded in 1954, Shanghai Normal University's School of Finance and Business (SFB), has always had a reputation as a leading research institution. SFB was opened to give scholars and business people the opportunity to teach, learn, and conduct research and analysis. Of SHNU's current 3,700 undergraduate and graduate students, approximately 16% are international students.
The combination of SHNU's business courses and BRIC Language Systems' innovative tailor-made Mandarin lessons gives students a leg up on their competition. The ability to effectively communicate with Chinese counterparts in a business environment makes students who have completed the Chinese Business & Language course highly sought after for vital positions at multinational corporations. Students will also be able to get a foundation of Mandarin before setting foot in Shanghai, through cutting-edge online lessons while still at home. This is a great way to jumpstart the learning process, and makes students feel confident and comfortable prior to leaving for China.
When the business courses are complete, students will be assisted in participating in a local internship. The internships reinforce the SHNU business course material and offer a great chance to get an authentic glimpse at working in the world's largest city. Living, learning, working, and interacting in Shanghai are the fastest ways to learn Mandarin.
With the application pushed back to July 31, 2014, recent graduates who have not yet started their careers still have the opportunity to join the remarkable program. "We're looking to build upon last year's success! I think we learned a lot coordinating with SHNU, and have made the program even better," McMunn exclaimed. For those people interested in studying and travelling in China, but not able to spend a full semester going to school, BRIC language also offers a variety of 2 week Chinese immersion programs.
