China has long been the world’s fastest-growing large economy. With a population exceeding 1.4 billion people, its huge market and well-developed manufacturing eco-system provide opportunities for companies, both large and small.
However, China is different in many ways from other countries. Many organizations hesitate to become involved because they lack the understanding they need to make sense both opportunities and threats.
Our Understanding a Changing China training programme is designed to help English-speaking executives from all over the world to understand the major issues which arise in respect of doing business in or with China.
Our Understanding a Changing China programme consists of a list of modules which may be combined in different ways to meet different organisation’s needs. Each topic in the modules can be delivered as a two or three hour session, or as a full day session if additional participant involvement.
|Professional Teaching Team |
|Professional Teaching Team – The modules will be delivered by experienced and qualified instructor(s) from PolyU and/or the industries who have lived, worked, researched and written in China for decades.|
|Modules are available in four groups of topics; China Unique Background, Hot Topics in China, Doing Business in China, and Hong Kong’s Economy: Past, Present and Future.|
|Flexible Training Solution|
|The learning modules listed in this programme can be customised for organisations which wish to extend or tune the contents for their participant group. Our programme managers can collaborate with your team to co-create a training programme catering for your unique business background and needs.|
Upon the completion of the Understanding a Changing China training programme, participants are expected to be able to:
- Understand the opportunities and challenges to access the 1.4 million China market
- Better equip with the skills to interact with Chinese companies, organisations, workers or executives.
- Formulate strategies to “go global” entering the business environment in Mainland China.
The following modules can be delivered as stand-alone courses or as a series.
Module 1: China’s Unique Background
These topics in Module 1 step back to look at the broadest issues which determine China’s business environment today. It is strongly recommended that some of these are included in any bespoke programme. If programmes are too narrowly focused, they risk losing the key to understanding China.
Module 2: Hot Topics about China
The second set of modules covers more specific topics which have aroused interest and controversy.
Module 3: Doing Business in China
The third set of modules addresses specific issues in Business and Management, as they are practiced in China.
Module 4: Hong Kong’s Economy
The final module deals with Hong Kong itself, from its colonial days to present and its future.
