WHEN THE EAST AND WEST BUSINESS CULTURES CONVERGE – MBA STUDENTS TOUR MNCS IN ATLANTA, U.S.
MBA Guangzhou class students set foot in Atlanta from 7
to 11 Dec 2015, with the aim not only to learn, but to find
the commonalities among Chinese and American business culture.
The visit was deemed opportune and insightful as students
visited the headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company, United
Parcel Service (UPS) and Home Depot – three Fortune 500
companies, as well as CNN, one of the world’s most significant
media players. Besides industry leaders, students also had
a chance to explore and exchange ideas with companies having
distinct American culture, such as Trader Joe’s, a supermarket
chain with innovative decoration and products, and Chick-Fil-A,
the largest fried chicken fast-food chain in the U.S. Through
dialogue with senior managers, our students not only gained
valuable insights, but also shared their Chinese approach
to business management.
American business culture focuses on independence, freedom,
competition and individuality, while the Chinese business
culture stresses relationship, etiquette and hierarchy.
Equipped with management experience in Mainland China, our
students engaged in active debates with their American counterparts,
providing grounds for synergies and deeper understanding
in both directions.
