Spotlight On:

Teaching Chinese Execs, Students About U.S. Media

As China’s economy evolves, so does its media landscape. Christine Arrington, Erica Gruen and Ava Seave have been helping explain these changes to Chinese executives and students over the last several years. They have been lecturers during the Columbia University two-week crash course covering the most recent trends in business practices, marketing techniques and strategy in the media fields.

Most recently, the Quantum consultants have

taught executives from Beijing’s CCTV (Chinese Central Television) and JiangSu Broadcasting Company at SIPA and to university students with an interest in journalism who were part of a Teachers College undergraduate program.
