IN492 INTERNATIONAL TRADE PRACTICUM: Hong Kong & Taipei (wINTER 2018)
January 3-19, 2018
In this Practicum students will experience in Hong Kong and Taiwan the increasing market forces of mainland China on international trade practices, fashion markets, culture, politics and daily life. Students will select field research topics that will enhance their career goals and source contacts to interview fashion brands, universities, government agencies, NGOs, trade associations, advocacy groups, etc. Hong Kong is considered to be an ideal platform for doing business in Asia and a gateway to mainland China. Students interested in technical fabrics and high-tech industrial textiles will have an opportunity to explore this growing area in Taiwan’s textile industry. By 2020, China’s fashion market will be worth $201.3 billion, as the country moves away from the factory model and the middle class embraces consumption. Program Fee: $3,500*, plus three-credit tuition, and a visa fee. Program fee includes airfare, double-room, continental breakfast and group outings.
