Seventeen Whittier College students are traveling through China this Jan Term with Professor of Business Administration Jeff Decker and business leader Edwin Keh ’79, who was a recent lecturer at the Wharton School of Business.
Edwin Keh ’79 reports: This morning (Wednesday) we got up at 4:30 and got to the airport only to be told our flight was delayed by several hours. We used the time to have a class and lecture at the gate.
Thursday morning we will go to Suzhou to tour a high tech TV manufacturing plant, and then we still have Nike, GE, Daphne(the largest women’s shoe retailer in China 7000 stores), the #1 Store (No 3 largest e commerce company in China, fastest growing co in China in the last 3 years), and GLP (one of the largest logistics companies in China.
Saturday we will visit a social enterprise started by two Harvard Students that was recently featured in CNN. We’ve got some side trips and a ride on the Maglev train (fastest train in the world) before we’re done next Tuesday.
We’re all pretty excited, and every night we fall asleep dead tired.
