Thirteen IUPUI students from four schools visited Changsha and Beijing, China, through Computer and Information Technology's China: Global IT Citizenship study abroad program. The purpose of the class is to examine the role of the individual information technology employee in a globalized workplace, and to discover the skills and knowledge a professional must have while working with colleagues from a variety of countries.
While in Changsha, students visited two Chinese firms -- Sangfor and Sany -- that have developed and depend upon information technology solutions to manage their businesses across the globe. Students also collaborated on a mobile application design project with students from Central South University in Changsha to practice their skills working in diverse teams and learn more about the IT needs and expectations of Chinese users.
