About Chinese - Contemporary Chinese Culture and Business at University College Cork

Overview

The aim of the MA in Contemporary Chinese Culture and Business programme is to provide students with an advanced understanding of Chinese society including culture, education, social system, politics, law, business and management; to improve their linguistic and intercultural skills necessary to work in or relate to China; and to gain experience in dealing with Chinese and Asian counterparts on an executive level.
