February 3 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM - STEW 206

For centuries, Confucianism has infl uenced ethical, philosophical, political, and religious systems in China. It is the cornerstone of the Chinese society and culture. Dr. FU Yongju of Qufu Normal University will discuss Confucius teachings and their relevance to understanding China’s rise and role in today’s global economy and the behaviors of contemporary Chinese businesses and consumers in the global marketplace. From a cultural and philosophical perspective, Dr. FU will address the many aspects of a market that is increasingly and rapidly intertwined with our own.

He speaks frequently at international events in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
