“This class was a very unique course unlike many others I have taken. Overall, I enjoyed the class and its content. The textbook was affordable and simplified enough that it made sense to me despite my limited knowledge on the topic initially. The style was very different than other courses and I really enjoyed the intensive structure as we were able to build on it immediately the following day.
“I loved this class. I found it to be one of the most applicable courses I have taken (currently relevant topic, recent and not oversimplified case studies and real-life experience used with application to in course material). I did not know much about China’s business culture history or its global importance. Also helped that the teacher made things interesting with non-linear, funny and experience packed presentations.” ~Constance Glusbery
“Great, engaging class. Promoted thoughtful discussion of current issues. Interactive teaching style addressed complex problems.” ~San Farhani
“I really enjoyed the class. The prof was really well engaged with the students. It was a different way of learning but in a good way, it made the topic seem very interesting. I learned a lot of new things about the Chinese market, the prof really knows her subject and I really enjoyed the seminar with her as a teacher. Most of the people I know would love to take a class like this, especially if it’s with the same teacher.” ~Stephanie Lemay
“I really liked the class as it gave me a new perspective about China. The teaching style was pretty good as it made the class environment feel more comfortable for me to speak on my thoughts.” ~Jiagi Xu
“Really liked the class, kept it very interesting and did not feel overwhelmed with information. Really learned a lot about business in China and even general marketing knowledge. I liked how your teaching style made us think of questions you asked in class to stimulate our brains and keep our attention.” ~Jack Zeidan
“Loved this class, mainly because of how your style of teaching was different than any other profs I have had. It was very engaging and very direct. I also enjoyed listening to conversations we had in the class” ~Rishi
“Your passion and experience for the topic helps keeps students engaged. I learned so much”
“This is the most interactive and interesting class I have ever had. Both the teacher and classmates were kind and easy-going. We could discuss and learn from each other and each side of view. I really like how the teacher guides the discussion form two sides of view and the culture difference enhanced our learning.” ~Yuhan Jiang
“Loved it! I liked the interactive approach and also the fact that we could be free to speak our minds and even talk about politics. The seminar styles and as one of my collegues said ‘Ted-talk’ kind of approach makes us feel that we have a private Ted-talk show and presentation which I loved.” ~Sara Eddaya
“I absolutely loved this course. When I read the course description, I was already excited about the course as the content (China) is a topic I am personally interested in. However, the course (and the professor), completely exceeded my expectations. I have trouble focusing in an hour and a half lecture, and I think I speak on behalf of most of my peers that you were able to hold our undivided attention for the full day.
Thank you for making it as collaborative of a class as it was. Not only did I feel like I learned so much from you, but also the different perspectives of others in the class. You created an environment when I felt comfortable to express my opinions and thoughts and everything was constructive criticism.
I liked that it was a discussion and appreciated how RELEVANT the topics discussed were. All the exercises were very practical. It blew my mind how interconnected everything is (more than I already knew).
I wish it were longer I feel like there’s so much more I’d like to learn from you and this topic as its always evolving.” ~Livia Han
“Great class. 10/10! Loved the flow, the dialogue, learned tons about China. I didn’t know the way they do business and the way they interact with each other. I liked how a native Chinese person was put in our groups as it gave us an insightful point of view. Overall it was a really good class. It’s obvious she cares about the topic and making it engaging for us students. As a student who generally avoids speaking in class the atmosphere developed in class made the class great.” ~Peter Owusu
“I really enjoyed the format of the class and the structure of each day. I thought the content was timely and informative. In general, you made the course enjoyable. I did not feel like I was in a lecture.” ~Mike Shaver
“I liked the class because it offered many perspectives on the Chinese market/expansion into the U.S/West. The style of teaching was primarily good and unconventional. Very good speaker and presence. I learned a lot about practical marketing strategies that can be adapted to any emerging market. The class was not too difficult and very interesting” ~Anonymous
“I really enjoyed the different way of teaching. Even if it was a short 4-day class. I learned a lot and had the chance to engage and participate. The material is very clear and understandable. And the book is amazing! I probably learned and got more experience in this class than any others. The class motivated me to do more research about global marketing strategies as well. Very interesting!
“I loved this class. It combined a theoretical framework to a real-world problem. It was also helpful to hear the “Team China” perspective, as well as opinions from the rest of the class. The book is great and easy to read.” ~Moira Bird
“I loved this class. The professor was very straight forward and to the point when teaching. Her style of teaching was better than that of most professors and it’s probably because of her practical experience and expertise on the subject matter. More professor should teach like her. I learned a lot about the subject matter. Growing up in a city with a lot of Chinese immigrants, I could relate to a lot of the information taught, but I did learn a lot about their culture and the way they do business.”
