China from the Insidehttps://weatherhead.case.edu/events/detail?eid=637To capitalize on the fastest growing economy in Asia, American businesses have much to learn. China’s highly complex business environment is characterized by a volatile transition from socialism to capitalism, a fragile legal framework, and complex labor and consumer markets. Successfully tapping this massive, developing economy requires a sophisticated understanding of the specific economic, political and cultural characteristics of the Chinese state and society.
This seminar provides a valuable insider’s perspective to managing business in China, from setting up operations to reaching the growing market. Learn how external factors on the Chinese side shape managerial decisions, both from a Western and Chinese perspective, and how they ultimately translate down to the shop floor. Through lively lectures displaying multi-disciplinary approaches, case discussions, and examples from direct experience with Chinese businesses and government agencies, managers will learn how to better understand, identify and solve problems when doing business in China.
