Chester Chen is excited to finally be in Canada. He spent the first two years of Humber's International Business Administration program at Ningbo University in China. He is now in Toronto completing his third and fourth year. "This is a great experience, my priorities are to improve my English and work towards my diploma, but I'm also really hoping to watch the Toronto Raptors play at the Air Canada Centre," says Chen.
Many Chinese students take part in the Humber-Ningbo-Jimei International Business Administration program so they can explore a different culture and gain exposure to international business and trade practices. The program comes with many perks including participating in activities and events that are part of Toronto's culture.
While at Humber, students are given the opportunity to learn and explore beyond textbooks and in-class instruction. Students take part in field trips to industry sites including the Redpath Sugar Museum and Parks Canada so they can see how business practices are applied in Canada.
Chen Biao, a graduate of the program and mentor to this year's cohort of students, says "the program is not only an academic exchange between Humber and China, but also a cultural communication program. It's an exceptional chance for students to open themselves up to other cultures."
