As part of Experiential Learning – Asia Pacific Study (RMG 917), a group of 17 Ted Rogers School of Retail Management students visited China in May 2016 for a two-week learning experience exploring the Chinese retail market.
Students visited Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai, learning about the Chinese retail market from experts at leading Chinese retailers, multinational companies, government agencies and universities.
We asked Dr. Hong Yu (Associate Professor and Director of the Ted Rogers School of Retail Management) and Adam Ladovsky (4th year, Retail Management) to tell us about the benefits of the experiential learning trip.

The participating Retail Management students also documented their journey to China through a series of blog posts. Read more through the links below!
