Business Issues in Japan’s Economy  (AEAS 2207)
Georg D. Blind, PhD

Generally, advanced BA students focusing on Japanese economy and all IN-EAST MA students are welcome to join this course, which is part of the advanced module “International Economic and Business Issues of Japan” (AEAS 2207).

Course description
This course is part II of module AEAS 2207 and aims to add case work experience to the knowledge acquired by attending the lecture “Japan’s Role in Global and Regional Economic Relations ” (part I of AEAS2207).

The selection of case studies is designed to challenge common views and misperceptions through critical inquiry.
