This course is specially designed to provide students with an introduction to domestic and international developments shaping the management of businesses in China. As part of their study students will be provided with an overview of China%E2%80%99s economic reforms from a domestic and international perspective. Students will study the various aspects of China%E2%80%99s domestic reforms including the reform of the fiscal, financial and enterprise systems. Students will then examine the international forces shaping management including China%E2%80%99s emergence of a global centre of manufacturing; the role of inward and outward investment; the future of foreign MNCs in China in light of recent developments; and the future challenges facing the economy such as the need to attract talent, reform the system of economic governance, and currency internationalisation. Case studies examining how both Chinese and international firms have adapted to domestic and international developments will give students a practical understanding of management issues in China and also offer an insight into fundamental challenges facing future developments. An open session will explore the question of sustainability in relation to the strain that economic and business growth has put on China%E2%80%99s environment. It is anticipated that students will leave the course with a greater understanding of the policy challenges and economic opportunities of China%E2%80%99s rapid growth.
