Rapid economic growth in most of Asia during recent decades has seen the emergence of large corporate enterprises which were organised in ways different from companies based in Western countries. This course discusses the evolution of Japanese, Korean and ethnic Chinese conglomerate enterprises and business networks. It introduces students to the particulars of corporate organisation and management of these enterprises, and elaborates the degree to which these help explain the success of Asian companies.
