Students are able to (1) develop a familiarity and a critical understanding of core concepts used in analysing the business context and management practices in the Asian region; (2) develop an informed understanding of contextual factors that affect management practices in the Asian region; (3) become cognisant of strategies and resources that assist in managing the interaction between the context framing business operations in the Asian region and the management strategies that have been developed to deal with these; (4) understand the significance of management practices in facilitating effective international business activity in the region; (5) engage in comparative analysis of business traditions and business practices in the Asian region; (6) apply all of the above in critical thinking exercises including case study analyses, small group and teamwork; and (7) develop interpersonal, oral and written communication skills, as well as teamwork skills.
Assessment information is provided in the unit outline.
