IM08 goes China & Vietnam – in a few days…

Welcome to the journey of the International Management Class of 2008 to China & Vietnam.

The exams are almost behind us, and our Study Trip is about to start this Saturday 22nd January 2011.

Throughout the semester the whole class did work on a documenation about our trip to various cities in China and Vietnam, such as Shanghai, HongKong, Saigon, Beijing and many more. This Study Trip Booklet was produced to give every participant a guideline for our journey. The booklet contains of an overview about the programme and some background information about the cities, the sights and the companies we are going to visit.

Once on the trip we are going to blog daily about our experience if we are not far from an internet access point as might will happen when we are cruising on the Mekong River towards Cambodia.
