International Seminar China

Spring 2009 EMBA Course

B7502-001: International Seminar China

International Seminars, Mar 8-14 Shanghai

Instructor: Shang-Jin Wei


This course can be viewed as the most significant case study of your EMBA education – the case of China. We will discuss how the Chinese economy gets to where it is – by managing three transitions simultaneously: from Marx to market, from an inward-looking Middle Kingdom to an externally-oriented world factory, and from farming to industrialization. We will also discuss factors that could influence the chance of success/failure of doing business in China, including local financial sector, exchange rate policy, corruption, and negotiation style.
