ELIGIBILITY
To apply, you must be a currently-enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate UW-Eau Claire student majoring in the College of Business.  You must be in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of 2.8. You must maintain full-time enrollment and continue to meet the academic standing and GPA requirements the semester prior to departure. You may apply as a freshman, but must have at least sophomore standing by the time the program begins.

COURSES 
Students are required to take 12-18 credits per semester. Most subjects at HKPU carry 3 credits each and are taught in English. Students are required to take 50% of their courses in the Business Program. The other 50%(or less) can be taken in other departments as well as language courses. All students must meet the pre-requisites of each course they choose to enroll in. It is highly recommended that students take a beginner level Chinese language course to assist in better communicating in Hong Kong. 

To see which courses are available to you please look here, and scroll down to Faculty of Business.
