MBA Leadership Paper: Doing Business in a New Country

MBA Leadership Paper:  Doing Business in a New Country Country selected: China Business: Clothing, Apparel, Shoes (Supply Chain) DIRECTIONS:  The purpose of this assignment is to provide students with an opportunity to see how easy it is to learn a great deal about the business culture of a country they are considering entering. While Chief Executives will have staff members to do their financial and market due diligence, they do not always have people on staff who can analyze the leadership challenges in an unfamiliar country. Consultants can be hired, but they are often of uneven quality, and a little effort on your part will allow you to both evaluate consultants’ expertise before issuing the contract, and the quality of the work completed. You need to select a country in which you have not lived, in which you have not done business, or do not have relatives living there or from there; this is to be based solely on the research you can do about an unfamiliar country using online resources. You should begin with a very brief paragraph describing the business you intend to set up in the country. Then address the culture, workplace practices, legal human-resources requirements (severance pay in layoffs, etc.), and any notable challenges to your prospective business there.
