In today's increasingly globalized economy, understanding the world's second largest economic superpower is essential for global success.  This course is designed for students who are interested in working in and with businesses in China as well as future business leaders who wish to develop a general understanding of Chinese business practices.  The course examines the many different types of business—private and public, Chinese and foreign—and the institutions that have and will define China's economic path and China's role in the global economy.  These include the state-owned firms that been the foundation of modern China's economy and dominate industry and banking; the large, new private businesses that have emerged in many industries and are challenging the state sector; the foreigners, whose ideas about "the China market" have both focused and clouded their vision. The course will also address key elements of the current political and economic situation in China.  As China rebalances from an investment-driven to a consumption-driven economy, what are the opportunities for entrepreneurs? How do foreign businesses succeed and fail in what is still the world's most dynamic economy? How do Chinese entrepreneurs move across private and public sectors? How do businesses manage the political challenges posed by the Chinese Communist Party? How do Chinese firms (private and state-run) "go global," and what are the opportunities for their international partners? What are the different roles of government—local, provincial, and national—in shaping the business landscape? In short, where is China going—economically and politically—and how can you take part in its continued rise?
