2016/17 Sem A A This is a good course if you are interested in the differences in Asian business practices. If you choose this course with the mindset to learn something new, you will definitely get many insights into managerial practices in Asia. I would say it will be useful for future career development if you plan to work in Asia. I didn't mind taking an examination for this course because I really think I learnt some new things.Assignments: 20% participation - important, you need to give answers (online or inclass for a minimum of 5 times and maximum of 7 times). don't be scared, the professor is nice and sometimes critical, but never condescending.40% group presentation + newsletter - choose serious group members; pay extra attention to in-text citation and references (professor has hawk eyes for this); link your content to culture theories taught in class; presentation is very hea (just 10 mins and a summary of your newsletter). I really appreciate Professor's detailed feedback for each group after the presentations.40% exam - you should do well if you revise your notes once and paid attention in class. for me it was quite straightforward. professor also tells us which topics to focus on beforehand.
