Asian Business Minor

The minor in Asian Business is designed to prepare students for working within the state's emerging Asia-oriented economy. It combines an overview of the nuances of the regional economy with an introduction to Asia's cultural and historical development. Topics include an introduction to Asian culture and philosophy, corporate-government relations, twentieth-century history, regional development, and export strategies.
