China Trade Simulation (3 credits)

This course introduces students to the procedures that Chinese companies follow to export goods from China. The course seeks to train students in Chinese procedures for the export of goods and to expose students to the culture of Chinese professionals in the field of international business. A software platform accessed on the FSU server provides an animated environment where students play the role of interns at a Chinese trading company. Throughout the course, students negotiate with overseas buyers (professors from the Shanghai Collegiate Internship Center for International Business of the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade), reach an agreement on business terms, and execute an export contract.
