IMF expect China to reach highest GDP growth for 2013
Despite the turbulent economic times faced by most of the world, China will remain the fastest growing country in the world according to a recent report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The report forecasts China growth in 2012 and 2013 to be 8.0% and 8.5% respectively, which is still 4 times faster growth compared to the current #1, the United States. As a result, China will need to hire more talented managers to steer top companies in the right direction. Those who seize this opportunities today will be the business leaders of tomorrow.

Action Projects in Shanghai to ensure you are 'job-ready'
Action Projects are a cornerstone of our innovative curriculum, which help you get job-ready from day one. Every year, each Hult campus offers distinct projects for major companies. Last year Hult Shanghai Action Project teams looked at the future of logistics, working with the world’s largest online B2B trading platform for small businesses, Alibaba.com. They reported to the Director of Payments and Logistics for Small-Order Global Trading at one of China’s most robust e-commerce websites. Students also worked at Fortune 500 conglomerate Johnson Controls Inc., and were given the opportunity to present their ideas to the board. These projects really give students an insight into regional challenges faced by companies operating in China that they would not experience working in other parts of the world.
