12th edition of the CMIX China program

Within the framework of the agreement between Banco de Chile, Universidad Católica de Chile, and Tsinghua University, the twelfth version of the CMIX Conducting Business in China program has just concluded.

On this occasion, 17 MBA students and two professors from the UC along with two executives from Banco de Chile took part in a two-week study tour in China. The trip, which included academic, business, and cultural elements, began with classes taught at the Tsinghua University in Beijing, which is considered one of the best academic institutions in Asia.

Also, the students visited Schwarzman College – a new residential college in the same university, cradle of future global leaders – where the Chileans met with Latin American counterparts, and attended a conference by Richard Brodhead and Xue Lan, former President of Duke University and Dean of Schwarzman College, respectively.

As usual, the agenda also included high-level company and site visits in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen to the Banco de Chile Beijing office, Bank of China and Citi, Foxconn, Huawei, Tencent, BYD, and more.
