How to make the millions in China

How to negotiate successfully in China

Chinese Law and how it concerns YOU

Intellectual Property Protection & lots more

This very comprehensive and "total immersion" course has been designed by Jiao Tong University, (one of the top five Universities out of 2,200 universities & colleges in China) especially for senior personnel of companies and firms who wish to do business with China or, perhaps, who wish to set up a factory or representative office in China or, indeed, for expatriate staff who will be or are already working in China and who have come to realize that without top-expert schooling, business in China can be full of (expensive) surprises

The China business knowledge thus gained is considered invaluable, if not an absolutely essential component of your China strategy.

For a small investment of only 3 Saturdays and not much money, you or your staff can acquire a thorough appreciation of how to do business in or with China and learn how to avoid the expensive mistakes that the China pioneers before you have perpetrated..

The practical knowledge thus gained can be of immediate benefit to the organization the coursist renders his/her services onto and especially for those who are or will be working in China, or whose companies intend to set up a business in China.


China is the acknowledged Powerhouse of the world and China's financial reserves are substantially assist the world economy to revive. China is also, beyond doubt, the ideal place to set op businesses, factories, distribution centers and service organizations. Legislation, extant and "on the drawing-board" ensure a taxation friendly regime, adequate intellectual property protection and an efficient and impartial judiciary. China boasts an extremely well educated and versatile pool of labor, many of whom have graduated from top universities or excellent vocational schools; a labor pool that can be molded into any corporate culture and be as efficient as any corporate staff in the world. Yet, as a block of stone can be turned into a pleasing masterpiece in the hands of a gifted sculptor, the same material can be turned into an abomination under the destructive chisel of an amateur. And so it is with doing business in China: in the hands of the initiated, a potentially thriving business may turn out to be an expensive flop. However, those forewarned, who have followed the purpose structured Jiao Tong University "How to do business in and with China" course are sure to be equipped with the cultural knowledge and China-business "modus operandi" to avoid a plethora of pitfalls and virtually guarantee a new venture's success. Or substantially improve their existing China business.

It is well known that China boasta of a continuous culture dating back 5,000 years and more. In that time, China has also been relatively isolated, if only for the lack of convenient transport into the expansive hinterland. Consequently, a vastly different business culture is what China does call it's own; a business and personal behavior culture that has surprised and baffled many, from Marco Polo to Mitterrand and from Matteo Ricci to Milton Freeman, yet,the successful ways of the Chinese can be learned. At a Jiao Tong University China business course, emphasis is placed on teaching candidates from all over the world, be they Presidents, Managing Directors, General Managers, Middle Managers, Sole Proprietors, Government Officers, Chambers of Commerce staff or others, on how to conduct ANY business in China effectively, successfully and profitably.

We all know that the French language is best learned on location, in France and so it is with doing business in China: You learn best the tricks of the trade, strategies, ways on how to excel in business negotiations and personal behavior while in China. You will learn from experienced Professors and Captains of Industry who have made all the mistakes in the book before you and so let you profit, first hand, from their experience. And this knowledge and expertise can be yours or your corporation's with an investment of only 3 Saturdays sabbatical in China and at a very moderate tuition fee. Besides, the networking and "rubbing shoulders" with fellow candidates from all over the world, indeed, could open new horizons..


The Professors and Lecturers at the Jiao Tong University China course are highly qualified and/or experts in their respective subjects.

Most have extensive business and lecturing experience in China.

The medium of instruction is the English language.
