The University of Notre Dame expanded its reach in global education with the arrival of 35 students from Tsinghua University, a top-ranked school located in Beijing.
The students, who arrived on campus Saturday (Jan. 24), are part of the PBC School of Finance at Tsinghua University. During the intensive two-week program offered by the Mendoza College of Business in coordination with Notre Dame International, the students will gain insights into American business practices and capitalism. Classes, taught by Notre Dame faculty, will cover topics ranging from the U.S. financial system and the American political system to entrepreneurship and corporate finance.
The Tsinghua students also will have an opportunity to experience American culture through attending sporting events, visiting an outlet mall and touring Chicago, among other activities.
