Expat Opportunities in Greater China and Singapore
IE Emerging Markets Club Nov 28, 2012
How can you position yourself for expat jobs and business opportunities in Greater China and Singapore? What business opportunities exist? Which industries are hiring expats? How difficult is it to obtain a work visa? And once you’re there, what is life as an expat like?

Our guest speakers will also be joined by three current IE students who will shed light on their expat experience in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore, followed by Q&A.
