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:

Tuesday we started the day in the US Embassy.  We were hosted by CDA Bob Wang.  It was like I was back in his classroom again.  Our students asked great questions and Bob gave us a brilliant comprehensive lesson in US China relations.  Our students were duly awed.  We were then given a tour of the largest US Embassy in the world.

We then went onto to visit Google.  Our host, Elliott Ng, a senior executive in this region gave us great insights about doing business on line.  We finished the day with a banquet in the rather exclusive China Club Beijing.
