Amazing China trip opportunity over spring break - Applications due Wednesday, December 8 by sbarber

For the second year,  Kohl's Department Stores and Human Ecology's Kohl's Center for Retailing Excellence will be sponsoring a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in a 10-day trip to Hong Kong and China for business, retail and design students.   It's an incredible international experience where you learn about culture, business and retailing in China at a minimal cost to students.

A student who went on the trip last year said, "Last year I went on the trip and I can't tell you what an amazing and once-in-a-lifetime experience it was! I tried new foods, met new people, and made connections with major retailers around the world while traveling to Hong Kong, Shenzen and Shanghai. China is a huge part of this industry now and it was a trip that will really benefit be in my future career in retail when working with suppliers in China. If you have the chance please apply for the trip! It will truly open your eyes to a totally new world!"
