Emerging Leaders: U.S. - China Study Delegation

Congratulations to the 40 students who embarked this summer on a journey to China through the CBCF's Emerging Leaders: U.S.-China Study abroad Delegation, which is sponsored by Bank of America, Dell, Inc. and PepsiCo. Over the course of two weeks, the students visited Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai and studied Chinese history, Mandarin, business and politics.

Students toured the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and Summer Palace. The group also attended seminars on China's recent development and plan in green energy. See the photos they captured from their experience.
