A group of 15 full-time Carey Business School students spent a week in February visiting eight international companies in Beijing and Shanghai as part of a school-sponsored employer trek. The trip, organized by the Pan-Asian Career Association (PACA) club at Carey, aimed to expose Carey students to opportunities in the Chinese job market.

The students, many of whom are Chinese nationals, met with representatives from several prestigious employers, including Bloomberg, the Walt Disney Corporation, KPMG, General Electric, and Novartis. The students said their Johns Hopkins connection proved an impressive calling card.

“When you say you are from Johns Hopkins University, their eyes open,” says Ching-Lun Fang, a Global MBA student from Taiwan.

Many of the students hailed from different parts of mainland China, Taiwan, and other Asian countries. This was the first international employer trek for the Carey School. Previous treks have been strictly American affairs, with visits to Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Houston, and Chicago.
