Field Course: Planning Your Business in China
Course Number 6575
Professor William C. Kirby
Winter; Q4; 1.5 credits
This Field Course follows on the EC course, "Doing Business in China" (DBIC). It assists students who wish to pursue business opportunities in Greater China (the People's Republic, Taiwan, and Hong Kong). It presumes basic knowledge of the Chinese business, economic, and political scene, as taught in DBIC. It is designed for groups of students who wish to pursue an advanced project, under faculty guidance, setting forth a business plan for an enterprise in China, Hong Kong, or Taiwan. The project may be for a Chinese (or Hong Kong or Taiwan) company; a wholly-owned foreign enterprise, a joint venture partnership, or a foreign-based enterprise anticipating doing business in or with China.
