This course provides a thematic and strategic perspective on management practices in East Asia, as a key region in global business. It pays critical attention to the management practices of corporations in Japan, China and Korea and analyses how firms outside the regions can deal with the East Asian corporations. The key focus of this unit is on comparative analysis of business systems and international corporate strategies and management styles. The course is designed to provide students with the conceptual tools and cases to understand: comparative analysis of business systems in Japanese Keiretsu, Korean business groups and Chinese business enterprises; corporate governance and human resource management practices; globalisation of East Asian firms and their foreign direct investment; impact of culture on management styles and decision making; organisational structures including sub-control; and foreign corporations operating in East Asia.
