Hello & 3 things I want to learn about
Hi everyone. My name is Kevin O'Connell. I just got done with my 3rd year at UMD double majoring in Accounting & Finance.I still have a couple years to go before i graduate.
I've never been to China so dont really know what to expect. We are only two days away and--probably like everybody else--I am getting very excited andcan't wait to depart! I want to learn many things while in China but here are just a few. First, I want to learn about Chinese business. China's economy has been growing at an incredible rate over the past decade-plus. They are going to be a force for years to come. I want to learn about China's main industries and the future of those industries. I also want to learn about how the Chinese business lifestyle differs from the United States. Second, I want to learn about the Chinese culture as a whole. I have been out of the country a couple of times but have never really gotten the feel for another culture. It will be a life changing experience to see how differently people live half-way around the world. Lastly, I want to learn about myself. I want to grow as a person during this trip. When you think about it, a month away from home is not that long. However, I have never been away from MN for more than a week. I have no idea what it's going to be like being gone for a month. When im working after college i want to be the type of person my boss knows s/he can send on a business trip and I will get the job done. This trip will give me a taste of what it's going to be like to work in completely different place.
