2017 HDR Funding and Mobility Opportunities

Entrepreneurship in China - Amir Chiti Zadeh

Amir Chiti Zadeh, originally from Iran and now a Bachelor of Philosophy candidate in the Faculty of Business and Economics, recently returned from a trip to Zhejiang University, Hangzhou China.
Amir was awarded a scholarship to attend the 2017 'Entrepreneurship in China & One Belt One Road' International Summer School operated by Macquarie's School of Management and open to Faculty of Business and Economics candidates.
Zhejiang University is a modern university where the very newest facilities are provided for students and academic staff.  Amir particularly enjoyed using the hire-cycles in the city and the University which he found affordable and convenient.
Overall, Amir considers this the opportunity of a lifetime.  Although he had been to the south of China once before, it was his first visit to the beautiful city of Hangzhou.  The course introduced him to a new image of Chinese society and culture along with knowledge of how to apply entrepreneurship in China.  The connections made will be helpful in creating new business relations and opportunities in China.
