Master’s Degree in Business with China and Asia - Pacific

Program Presentation

The Master's Degree in Business with China and Asia-Pacific responds to a current and undisputed fact: the displacement of the world’s economic center from West to East. China is already the first economic power (in GDP-PPP) and the country with the largest commercial transactions. The Middle Kingdom has ceased to be just the world’s factory to become the most potential domestic market in history. It is also a powerful international investor with strong interests in the world in general and in Latin America in particular. Not in vain, it maintains strong, growing economic and trade ties with the majority of Latin nations.

The Asian colossus is, therefore, a global player, the nation with the greatest ability to influence the world, along with the United States. Nevertheless, FUNIBER assumes the importance of Asia-Pacific as a whole, which is why this program also analyzes relevant countries next to China such as Japan, the third world economic power, South Korea, one of the “Asian tigers”, and the emerging nations of Southeast Asia. In the same way, the master’s degree also covers Chinese territories deserving a particular attention, for their singularity: Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

Since FUNIBER is well aware of the power and potential that China and Asia-Pacific hold as well their impact on economy and international business, the aim is to make known the reality of this phenomenon through a thorough and attractive program. The master's degree focuses on the practical aspect of China’s business reality: foreign trade, commercial law and investment opportunities, without excluding the deep knowledge of the country to be able to understand the country and its people.

Who is the programme for?

The program is open to all students who prove to have completed 240 credits of any university degree.

    This subject introduces the student to two areas as complex and large as are the culture and history of China. The old-age history of the Middle Kingdom is well defined in two parts: the old regime that ends in 1912 and the contemporary era, which is in turn divided into the Republic, Maoism and modernity. All the historical stages are studied in a pleasant way and paying attention to the most important keys.

    With regard to the culture, a concept that transcends history,the subject highlights the role of Confucius’ philosophy , for these are a set of doctrines that persist in the present and influence social and public life.

The country also has all the possible landscapes and climates, given its extension and latitudes.

    Not only its physical geography is studied, but also the human one: demography, social structure and its most relevant indicators. In addition to that, the institutional aspect is covered: the political landscape of the country and its public organization model.

    The economic field is analyzed by paying attention to the causes, realities and consequences of the accelerated progress that has made China become the second world power. This subject takes a look into how China has turned into the ‘factory of the world’ and also into a large internal market and powerful international investor. The country’s progress has reported great achievements but the challenges and problems are no less important, especially with regard to the environment and the distribution of wealth.

  4. GEOPOLITICS AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS: CHINA IN THE WORLD

    The geopolitical aspect is also very important and will be given a special attention. China is a leading international player, a great power with global aspirations. Its investor and commercial impact has made its influence increase in many countries in Latin America and around the world. But its power is not only economic, its political-diplomatic role as well as military is every day more relevant in the field of international relations.

    The interests of China are already global: its companies and banks are positioning themselves more and better every day around the world. The subject also explores how China maintains fluid bilateral relations with the vast majority of sovereign nations at the same time that has an active multilateral role in global forums. Its role in the United Nations Organization is increasingly being taken into consideration.

The subject covers the training and coaching in the company to observe how they are put into practice in the Chinese job market. As in the rest of business areas, there will be aspects similar to those that are common in the West and others that are quite different.

    Another key factor for the success of doing business with Chinese citizens is to carefully study the intercultural aspect, that is to say, understand and successfully manage professional and human relations that govern the corporate and social life in China. It is fundamental for westerners to know and respect a corporate culture as complex and distant as the Chinese one.

    Selling in China or to Chinese citizens is no easy task. The aim of this subject is to learn the secrets of the marketing and business management in the Middle Kingdom, which is more than an important issue to undertake an internationalization strategy in the country. China is the market with the most potential in the history of mankind, so many foreigners want to successfully position themselves in the country. Logic and experience dictate that the only ones that succeed are those which adapt to the context of the market.

    It is also important to emphasize that the complexity and diversity of the country means that we cannot think of China as an even market. Indeed, we can observe the strategies and techniques that govern the market in general and observe with attention to the cases of success, in addition to learning how to proceed to the analysis of markets and consumers.

  3. ACCESS METHODS FOR INVESTING AND SETTLING IN CHINA

    It is essential to know precisely the rules, instruments and guidelines governing in China for the establishment of foreign investment. From the Latin American countries, as well as from other latitudes, there is a great interest in settling in the largest market in the world. But it is not only the intention that matters: it is necessary to be aware of the procedures governing on paper and in practice.

    Foreign investment in China exceeds 100,000 million per year, a figure that confirms the global interest that exists in this market. However, not all investors succeed easily. It is essential to be adapted in each case to the investment vehicles that we may agree upon. The options are many, and we will study them in detail.

  4. ETHICS AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN CHINA

    Corporate social responsibility is a fundamental aspect of the business and economic activity in the West. In the case of China, this discipline is gradually taking as a model, at times, the good practices that govern in America or Europe, and is also, increasingly beginning initiatives of its own.

    However, there is still much to be done in this disciplines which covers internal and external areas of the company, the social and environmental areas. The reports on corporate social responsibility are still few in the Chinese business universe, but more and more companies are committed to publish them as we will see in this subject. The ethics of business in China will also be analyzed with special diligence.

    It is good to learn from the successes and mistakes of others who have started business and relations with China to know what to do or what should be avoided. Each case is a unique story but the analysis of the cases of success and of failures of foreign entrepreneurs in China will bring us some keys of great interest.

    This subject also addresses the opposite experience: examples of how the Chinese investment is received abroad, and so this subject includes interviews with renowned experts and authorities. No doubt their opinions and experiences also constitute an asset of great value.

BLOCK 3: CHINESE BUSINESS LAW AND FOREIGN.

  1. INTRODUCTION TO THE LEGAL SYSTEM OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA

    The millennial and autocratic history of China caused the country to form a legal system away from foreign influences. The maoism abolished much of the traditional legal heritage and the deregulation was overcome little by little after the opening to capitalism. Currently, the legal Chinese’s outlook is already very comprehensive and covers all aspects of life in society.

    The aim of this subject is to study the legal system from its foundations, and above all, to analyze the legislation that affects businesses.

The objective is to understand the operation of issues such as financial diagnostics, treasury management, the company valuation, the management control and the accounting and tax principles that apply in the country.

    For its part, the banking system deserves a careful analysis. The large banks in China are public, although their operation and system is more and more similar to entities operating in Europe or North America.

    The industrial property, as set of rights over an invention, patent or design, and intellectual property, such as the protection of the interests of creators, are two fundamental aspects of the legality of business which, in China, there is a need to review with due care. In this course you will see all legal and technical aspects relating to the industrial and intellectual property. Both the theoretical and the practice will be discussed.

    The experts confirm that today it is possible to protect industrial and intellectual property in China, although it is no easy task because it requires patience, dedication and investment. The Asian colossus has advanced much in this area, especially since 2001, the year in which it joined the World Trade Organization. The State takes very seriously this issue and the legislation is already at the level of the western countries.

  4. THE IMPORT AND EXPORT CHALLENGES IN CHINA

    China is the largest trading power in the world: it exports and imports more products than any other country in the world. The Middle Kingdom is already the largest trading partner or one of the main trading partners in many countries in Latin America and in the rest of the world. China is the largest world’s ‘factory’,which is why it exports vast amounts of products.

    In spite of that, China does not remain viable thanks to only export As the largest market in the world, the country also needs to import goods from all over the world to maintain its level of consumption and investment. Due to this fact, the opportunities to import and export in the country are enormous. In this subject we will learn how to take advantage of this potential by observing the regulations and practices that apply in all phases of the trading internationalization.

In the case of China this aspect is very relevant given its distance from Latin America and Europe, and the complexity and size of the country. This subject includes lessons on the access to ports or the treatment of goods.

    We will pay attention to all legal and technical aspects that need to be carried out in transport and logistics operations such as taxes, insurance, contracts and payment methods. This area is complex and multidisciplinary, therefore, it will be studied in depth.

BLOCK 4: CHINESE SPECIAL REGIONS AND SURRONDING COUNTRIES.

  1. THE HONG KONG, MACAO AND TAIWAN TERRITORIES

    China comprises territorial entities such as provinces, autonomous regions and special administrative regions. Hong Kong and Macao respond precisely to this last category. The former British colony is a solid financial , industrial and commercial center as well as one of the most open cities in the international economy. It is considered, not in vain, as one of the best commercial entries to the Middle Kingdom. Macao is also an important city. Former Portuguese colony, it is a leading leisure and economic center.

    Taiwan, for its part, is considered by China and by the international community as a territory that belongs to the People's Republic, although, in practice, it acts as an independent actor on the international scene.

    South Korea has the third largest GDP in East Asia, after China and Japan. And although it is a much more small nation in the economic and demographic compared to the surrounding countries, its commercial importance and role in the world is greater every day. Being the eighth export power, its large business conglomerates are leaders or, at least, major players in high value-added sectors.

    South Korea is, therefore, an open economy, diversified and very well connected with the rest of the world. And as in the case of Japan, we will also take a look at all areas of interest, paying special attention to the economic-business. The Middle Kingdom is the great protagonist of the Far East but South Korea is a good example of how Asia is much more than China.

    It is also interesting to analyze other markets in addition to China, Japan and South Korea. Countries such as Indonesia, with more than 230 million inhabitants, are leading demographic and economic powers. The Philippines is also a relevant and emerging nation, and in the same way one has to pay attention to the countries of Indochina: Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia... among others.

    Singapore deserves a special mention, it is one of the most advanced economies of the world, closely linked economically and commercially to China, and whose inhabitants are in large part Chinese: Mandarin Chinese is the official language in the country.
