Mingda Institute for Leadership Training hosts upper executives

The China Center's intrepid Mingda Institute for Leadership Training hosted a delegation comprised of upper executives from AVIC-INTL Project Engineering Company (Beijing) May 7-11, 2012. Intent on studying western project management techniques, the delegation enjoyed five lectures taught by University of Minnesota faculty and Minneapolan entrepreneurs, as well as company visits to local Fortune 500 companies Best Buy, 3M, and Wells Fargo. The highlight of the week was a day-long visit to the city of Duluth, where the delegation toured the Cirrus Aircraft manufacturing floor, met with engineers and the marketing team, and were thrilled by a daring flight over Lake Superior in two single engine aircraft. The week was topped off by a graduation ceremony and banquet held at the McNamara Alumni Center during which the delegation leader enumerated the objectives gained while attending the training program and expressed his desire to return to Minnesota one day.
