Former clients include De Nederlandsche Bank, ABN AMRO, AEGON, Greenpeace, DHL, KPMG, TNT, but also many small and medium size enterprises. On average, 75 students apply for this project out of which 12 students are selected to conduct research in China. Together with the 6 research project committee members, the research team consists of 18 students. The participants are selected for being highly motivated and for having international, organizational and research experience. Before going abroad, thorough desk research will be carried out so maximum preparation will be ensured. The field research will take place in China and will last for five weeks. Once the participants have returned to the Netherlands, the gathered data will be processed and the final report will be written. During the entire process university professors of the Vrije Universiteit and the Universiteit van Amsterdam will supervise us and provide all the required information.

Why China? The Chinese economy has shown a remarkable growth over the past decade with GDP growth rates varying from 7.6% to 14%. Economists of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) expect the Chinese economy will top the U.S. economy as the most important economy of the world by 2016. The economy still relies heavily on export, but a shift is taking place towards a more consumption-and-service driven economy, which offers opportunities for foreign investors. The recently disclosed plans for economic reforms by the Republic of China is expected to further encourage the shift towards a consumption driven economy by loosening controls over among other, the financial and energy sector. The most promising sectors in China are: Electronics, industry, energy, water management and life sciences and health.
