TAFE Western business and management students are getting ready to say “ni hao” to China.

Students are set to take part in a two-week outbound global mobility program and will visit high-profile Chinese businesses, universities and organisations in Shanghai.

Student Renai McArdle said she was excited the trip.

“Having the opportunity to experience a different culture and especially the traditional Chinese practices,” she said.

“It’s also a little mind blowing to understand a population of 24 million. I am looking forward to see how the city operates with that volume.”

Students will learn team building, leadership and management skills.

The students will leave for China next week.
