20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: none


Aims/Description: The module introduces students to some key aspects of business and management practice in contemporary China. It helps students develop a critical understanding of the changing patterns and dynamics of business and management in China, and issues and problems encountered by international businesses operating in China or doing business with the Chinese. Special attention is paid to topics of investing and operating foreign businesses in China, the state-owned enterprise reform, development of the private sector and management of private enterprises, financial market operation, and the Chinese business culture. An understanding of these topics is highly relevant to companies targeting the China market and essential background for graduates seeking a career in Far Eastern Business. Students are thus encouraged to develop business-related skills.
