Valdosta State University: International Business in Asia Pacific
9 credit hours Possible Including Valdosta State University led course taught in Singapore
Valdosta State University has partnered with Global Academic Ventures (GAV) to offer a unique study abroad program in Singapore called “International Business in Asia Pacific” from December 9th - 21st, 2019.
Ranked as the second top country for foreign direct investment, Singapore is the leading location for European companies to base their Asia-Pacific headquarters. Since gaining Independence, the economy in Singapore has expanded at an extraordinary rate, and the country has one of the highest GDP per capita in the world. Singapore’s economy has been labeled as the most open in the world (by the world economic forum), the seventh least corrupt (by Transparency International), the most pro-business (by the World Bank), with low tax rates, and the third highest per-capita GDP in the world in terms of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP).
This intensive course is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of current business environment in Asia Pacific through lectures, case studies, and meetings with business executives. There will be a very heavy emphasis on guest speakers and company presentations that will be arranged for the visiting delegations by GAV.
Course Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the environmental factors (political, economic, social, and legal) that have shaped Hong Kong as one of the world’s best cities to do business.
