Sisältö 

China has contributed more than 25 % of global economic growth, is the key production house of most products that we consume or utilize and is the second largest foreign/over-seas investor of the world. This all has been challenged by the tiny corona virus. The course aims to explore a broad range of issues that explain the miraculous success story (in before-corona era) and the tremendous economic, finance, consumer trust, production and logistics capacity challenges China is and will face during the after-corona era.

The analysis of the “before” and “after corona” eras expose macro-level institutional texture that condition and binds the hands of policy makers together. At the micro-level, the course will also touch managerial, networking (guanxi), strategic thinking, and cross-cultural communication challenges and negotiation cultures in increasingly heterogenic China.
