Teaching the Chinese business course will be Li Yihua, author of a textbook on Chinese soon to be published by Yale University Press.
Organizing the courses for the university are Roy Shaw, marketing professor, and Kent Morrison, political science professor. Registration will be through the U. of U. Division of Continuing Education.
