Chinese for Business Professionals
Chinese for Business Professionals is a specialized series of Chinese language courses tailored to the needs of professionals planning to do business with China or to live and work in the Chinese-speaking world. These courses are now open to all students at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. These practically-oriented courses were originally designed as part of a comprehensive China International MBA program and are strongly focused on spoken and written communication and on culturally appropriate behavior in the workplace. These intensive courses will offer a solid foundation for all professionals, even those with a non-business orientation.
Each course covers approximately one year-level in one semester’s time. Classes meet four days a week, two hours per day, and confer eight semester credits each. Placement is determined based on previous language attainment in standard Mandarin Chinese.
Successful completion of CHN 205 will fulfill the Hawaiian / Second Language undergraduate core requirement. All of the courses can fulfill language requirements in various disciplines.
For placement or more information, contact Professor (Ms.) Haidan Wang, firstname.lastname@example.org, (808) 956-6881.
