22 students of the Master’s degree programme in Banking and Financial Management at the University of Liechtenstein recently took part in a 12 days educational journey to China. They visited numerous financial services institutions, as well as manufacturing companies in Beijing and Shanghai. 


Every other year the study directors of this Master’s degree programme organise an educational trip to the world’s most important financial centres. Interested students and alumni can participate at their own cost. As a preparation for the actual visits, students prepare a seminar paper on a related topic prior to the trip, and get this module credited to their overall study performance.

This year’s educational journey took the group of students to China, with the official programme of company visits taking place from 8 to 10 April in Beijing and from 13 to 17 April in Shanghai. In addition the students visited major places of interest. The group covered the distance between the two major cities, which are approximately 1500 km apart, by travelling on the bullet train.


A varied schedule of business visits and lectures


The official programme included a visit to the Liechtenstein company Neutrik, which has a production site in Ningbo, near Shanghai. As well as numerous western institutions, such as UBS, Commerzbank, Raiffeisenbank International AG Beijing, AXA and BASF, the group also visited native Chinese companies like the Minsheng Bank.
