This course is part of the Contemporary China Studies Programme Summer Sessions 2018, and is taught in Shanghai, China in collaboration with Fudan University. The course, taught by one of the inventors of the smart phone and one of the most prominent business professionals in Shanghai, introduces students to a wide range of issues pertaining to doing business in China, including China's business business culture, policy, marketing & sales, R&D, human resources management, technology, and e-commerce.
China, one of the fastest growing countries in the world, has great impact on the global economy. Since 2011, China has been the world's second largest economy after the United States. China’s economic importance has grown rapidly. In this course, we will explore China from several different aspects, such as culture, business environment, government policies, successful business stories, and business opportunities in China. The knowledge learned from this course will assist students to understand China much more, especially in doing business in China and with Chinese companies.
The class format includes lectures, case studies, movie clips, and group discussion, as well as student presentation, etc. The content covers both quantitative and qualitative materials. We expect students’ active participation throughout the course. Students will work in groups to investigate business in China and present their findings. Besides normal lectures, special guest speakers or on-site tour may be arranged for further understanding of updated business status in China.
After completing the course, students will have solid knowledge on doing business in China. It should provide students great help in business operation in China and with Chinese companies. The exercises of group projects will give students deeper understanding of special business cases in China. This will help students to learn not only academic knowledge but also business reality.
