How to be successful in doing business in Asia and internationally? Over the last three days we enjoyed exciting insights on this topic in our Executive MBA at University of Zurich. Ingmar Björkman and Matthias Schaub were happy to welcome Dario Casari, representing a Korean company (Samsung) in Switzerland, and Kurt Haerri, representing a Swiss company (Schindler) in China sharing their experiences and insights. Deep dives into specific areas of interest focused on the important topics of negotiating in Asia by Aurelia Frick, talent management in China by Helena Shen and the increasingly relevant topic of geopolitics and the associated risks by Daniel Woker and Philippe Welti.
Our guest speakers engaged our participants in interactive and lively discussions, and we thank them for their inspiring and thought-provoking inputs. Specifically, about China, updates on the fast changes with regard to business culture and geopolitical environment were very impressive.
