Summary The purpose of this chapter is to explore whether a 3-week China Study Program (CSP) run by Deakin Graduate School of Business (Australia) has helped students gain cultural intelligence for doing business cross-culturally. It is believed that the ongoing CSP would provide a distinct advantage for business students to develop relevant global management skills and equip students with knowledge and skills for work challenges in the greater Asia-Pacific region. However, it is unclear whether students indeed have developed global mindsets and cultural intelligence - two most important elements of skill sets for effective global managers. This chapter adopts a reflective approach, aiming at identifying triggers that could help facilitate positive behavioral changes and enable students to better prepare for future global assignments.
