Course Overview

This module looks at management in the world's most dynamic and significant region – East Asia. We explore what it means to do business in key economies of Asia. Selected frameworks will help us analyze market environments and international management challenges for managers and entrepreneurs alike.

If scheduling permits, the seminar usually includes a guest lecture by a senior partner of one of the major global management consulting firms or another academic institution.

Course Goals and Organization

The course will enable students to acquire a high-level overview of management in major East-Asian economies. Students will develop a basic understanding of the practical differences of doing business in East-Asia from the ”Western” perspective and become familiar with the role frameworks can play in a structured analysis of business problem settings.
