Managing China Cross-Border Development

China is expanding its economic footprint across its borders by acquiring or investing in offshore companies at an intense pace. Western managers of large and small businesses abruptly engaged with China are adversely surprised when faced with a business partner that operates with a very different world-view and who has previously earned their success in an incomparable business environment. The course develops students’ management acumen, specifically when a Chinese-based business is a counterpart.
