Did you ever wonder what it would be like to study overseas on a campus, have the opportunity to immerse in the new culture, but at the same time get credit for a required course at UNI? You now have the chance to test this out by taking Organizational Management and spend three weeks on a campus in China under the leadership of a UNI business professor. In addition you will have time to take courses to immerse in the Chinese Language and Culture. While abroad, UNI students will also do an internship under the supervision of the president of a Chinese-owned finance and real estate development company, Everbright International Group. We will even find time to stop by to see the Great Wall in Beijing and other famous tourist attractions!

Welcome to our Organizational Management course with a difference! This year we plan to teach this course on the brand new campus of the Liuzhou Teachers College in our sister city of Laibin in China! My name is Ronelle Langley and I will teach one of the Summer 2013 sections of this course. I am committed to do everything I can to ensure that this will be an enlightening and enjoyable global learning experience for all of us.
In preparation for our course, we will meet a few times before we leave for China. Once we are on the campus of Liuzhou Teachers College that has a Business and Finance Department, we will be joined by 10 of their students for the duration of the course. By signing up for this course, I believe that you have an interest in organizational management from a global perspective and trust that this will be a memorable professional development experience that you will take with you for the rest of your career. As part of your coursework in China, you will do an internship under the supervision of Mr. Mang Huang, who is the President of Everbright International Group, a Finance and Real Estate Development company with offices in three cities in China. Students will also have an opportunity to attend lectures in Chinese language and culture while on campus in Laibin City.
Students pay UNI tuition and fees (in-state or out-of-state), the $65 application fee, and the study abroad administration fee to participate. There will be additional costs for housing, food, books and supplies, round-trip airfare, international health insurance, and other personal expenses.
To ease the financial burden on participants, expenses are broken up into four main categories.
- The first large expense is the airfare; shortly after the program is full* and has been declared closed, participants will be notified by the Study Abroad Center how to go about purchasing the airfare (normally organized by Study Abroad Center).
- The second amount due will be for any reserved activities associated with the program (e.g., housing, local transportation abroad, some cultural activities, some meals); this amount will be due before the program start, usually in the spring semester prior to the program.
- Third, the UNI tuition and fees, the study abroad administration fee, and any remaining amounts will be placed on the U-bill.
- Finally, there will be onsite expenses consisting of meals, additional cultural program activities, and any other personal expenses.
*Note that summer programs fill at different times and so airfare purchase dates will vary greatly by each program. Please contact us (contact page URL) if you have questions about a specific program.
