Asian way of building companies

IE University, whose Business School is currently one of the top Business Schools in the world  is the institution of restless learning and powerful connections that always strives for more.  

IE invites you to master class in Moscow to discuss the peculiarities of building companies in Asia with IE Professor and Asia markets expert. 

In today’s global market, looks like businesses have stopped thinking about the risks of doing business in Asia and start thinking about the risks of not doing business in Asia. A big- time future success demands some preparation for the challenges of the new markets.  

Westerns often make common mistakes when trying to enter the Asian’s market, as they don’t fully understand Asia’s diversity and complexity, from cultural differences to business approach. This session will give you a turn on key solutions and practical tools to minimise cultural and business misunderstandings. It will also touch upon the value of relationship “guanxi” in the Chinese culture, and will suggest ways to build a winning and engaged team taking into consideration Asian mentality.
