The first WiSo@ programme was created in New York City, due to the city’s persistent economic relevance and historical stream of commerce. Since its inaugural run in 2011, more than 260 undergraduate and postgraduate students have participated in this six-week summer school. Building on the success of the WiSo@NYC programme, the new offering in Hong Kong and Shenzhen will complement and diversify the WiSo Faculty’s international portfolio. 

Hong Kong, as a well-developed financial hub, and Shenzhen, with its high scores in infrastructure, represent accessible gateways to the region. Current construction of one of the world’s longest bridges and a high-speed railway will improve transportation links between the two cities and move them towards a border-spanning megalopolis - making the area a powerful economic junction to watch in the coming years. 

With guest lecturers from the Hong Kong Management Association and the China University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen, WiSo@HongKong is a unique six-week programme (29 July - 6 September 2019) for master students of the WiSo Faculty.

To learn more, join one of the upcoming info sessions:
Friday, 16 November from 10 - 10:30am or Tuesday, 27 November from 9 - 9:30am (each held in Bldg. 106 Seminargebäude, Rm. S14)

Why study abroad with WiSo@HongKong or WiSo@NYC?

“As a business student, it is particularly important to gain a sense of the international structure of the global economy and also to discover similarities and differences in various business contexts. Thus, I decided to spend some time of my Bachelor degree in the two undoubtedly most powerful economies of the world, China and the USA. […] Getting to know such diverse, but at the same time partially related countries and their economies was of immense value to understand global economies and as well enhanced my network with humans from all over the world.” - Malte Geisen, 2018 WiSo exchange student in Shenzhen and WiSo@NYC2018 participant
