Where You'll Study

Where You'll Study

Established in 1951, East China Normal University (ECNU) is one of China’s key institutions of higher learning and the first to specialize in teacher education. ECNU is nationally known for its Chinese language and literature program, and the university enrolls more than 21,000 full-time undergraduate and post-graduate students on its two campuses, along with some 2,700 international students, mostly from Korea and Japan.

Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Campus Residence Hall with CIEE Roommate—
Most participants will stay in the Campus Residence Hall, which is a five-story facility located on the ECNU campus that has a lobby with 24-hour security and laundry facilities. There is a student computer room and study lounge on every other floor, as well as a kitchen and bathrooms on each floor. The residence hall is a 10-minute walk from the CIEE Study Center, and is within walking distance to a light rail and other public transportation.

Meals are not included in this housing option and are the responsibility of the student. Meals are available in the campus cafeterias at a moderate price.

Chinese Host Families—
Participants taking more than one session in Shanghai during the summer will have the option of staying with a Chinese host family. Host families are located within 15 - 45 minutes of campus, by foot or public transportation. Students have their own room in the host family apartment and share the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Students are invited to most family meals, but should budget for their own lunches, some weekend meals, and most meals during group field trips and individual travel. Chinese family members speak Chinese only. This option is highly recommended for students who want to live in an entirely Chinese language environment and focus on advancing their Chinese language proficiency.

The CIEE Shanghai staff strive to match each student based on his or her first preference, not only in terms of personal lifestyle preferences but also academic, cultural and personal goals.

Orientations

Orientations

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Shanghai even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online pre-departure orientation. Meeting with students online, the resident director shares information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple—to help you understand more about the program, and identify your objectives so that you arrive well-informed and return home having made significant progress towards your goals.

A mandatory three-day orientation session conducted at the beginning of the program introduces you to the country, culture, and academic program, and provides practical information about living in Shanghai. You will also take language placement exams at this time to determine your appropriate Chinese language level, and meet individually with the center director and Chinese language director, as appropriate, to finalize course registration. Ongoing support is provided by CIEE staff on an individual and group basis throughout the program.

BUSI 3003 SHSU / MKTG 3001 SHSU

Marketing Management and Methods in East Asia and Emerging Markets
Marketing is a company-wide undertaking that drives an organization’s vision, mission, and strategic planning. Marking is about learning the overall shape of the market, deciding who the firm wants as its customers, which needs to satisfy, what products and services to create and offer, what prices to set, what communications to send and receive, what channels of distribution to use, and what partnerships to develop. Marketing deals with the whole process of entering markets, establishing sustainable and advantageous positions, and building loyal customer relationships. To achieve this, all departments must work together: designing the right products, furnishing the required funds and accounting for their use, buying the right inputs, and producing quality products. At the same time, the traditional marketing mix is being transformed across many industries by new information technologies, and as a result, some of the “traditional wisdom” is being turned on its head. We will look at cutting-edge theory in modern marketing management to be applied across a spectrum of industries and institutions—both business to consumer and business to business/institution, and see how this theory is applied through recent case studies both in China and abroad. We will have a particular focus on timely issues such as CRM (Customer Relationship Marketing), the impact of information technology on all areas of business and marketing, specific issues in China, Asia, and emerging Markets, the implications and opportunities created by the global economic crisis, and effectively integrating the marketing mission into the organization across all functions with their often conflicting perspectives. Instructor: Jack Marr, Advising Director, Stern School of Business, New York University in Shanghai
