Inhalte der LV

The topics provided are designed to give students an in-depth understanding and appreciation of the characteristics of East Asia (here: China, South Korea, Japan). This course delivers research-led, contemporary discussions and analyses of these markets and their actors.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

Students will get an understanding of the peculiarities of East Asia: economic history, markets, culture and companies/business groups.

Students will be be trained on:

  • The ability to research material related to firm and country contexts, to structure ideas and presentations, and to work in groups.
  • The ability to read and understand theoretical/empirical academic literature.
  • The ability to transfer learnings from one context to others.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

Attendance requirement is met if students are present for at least 80% of the scheduled sessions, otherwise students are de-registered from the course.


The course format is interactive. Students will be trained on a theoretical and practical level by engaging in in-class discussions, solving cases and presenting their analyses. The course design comprises the following teaching methods: lectures, in-class discussions, discussions of academic papers and case analyses/presentations. Students are asked to be prepared for each class which should act as a basis. Thus, they are expected to do required readings and scientific articles which are specified for each session.

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

The assessment of students' grades are based on the following criteria:

  • Individual participation (40%): Participation is assessed based on the attendance, quality of preparation and active contribution in class.
  • Individual peer rating (5%): Due to counter free-riding problems, every group member evaluates contributions of the other group members.
  • Individual paper (10%): Students are required to hand in a 1,500 words long essay three weeks after the last session. The essay should be about a particular field of interest covered in class. Students should both integrate their learnings from the course and substantiate their line of argumentation with 3-4 academic papers.
  • Group presentation (40%): Students get into groups of 2-3 people (depending on the class size) in the first session. They are required to do one presentation regarding the topics of the course; the case studies are guided by pre-assigned case questions.
  • Commentary by groups (5%): Each group has to comment on another group’s presentations.
