China’s growth and integration into the world economy create opportunities for international business but foreign enterprises face the challenge of adjusting their way of doing business in China. To thrive in China business, understanding the market environment, the country’s policy-making, as well as Chinese language and culture, is crucial. This programme is designed to provide students with a multi-dimensional understanding of China Business.
This well-tailored, economics-based, multi-disciplinary programme focuses on all specific areas relevant to doing business in China. With relevant theories and up-to-date practical applications, the programme aims to equip students with systematic knowledge of business practices and the ability to analyze changes in government policies and regulations that affect business operations in China.
The programme is offered by the Faculty of Business and supported by the Faculty of Humanities at PolyU. It covers the economic, social, legal, cultural, political, management, accounting and financial aspects of China.
