The original idea was to establish a ¡®TOOL KIT¡¯ for Doing Business in Asia: KIT stood for Korea, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Other schools would join the KIT program but it still be called KIT.
KIT is to provide students with the opportunity to experience first-hand the business cultural practices of the region; in a learning environment that promotes cross-cultural understanding and insight into business processes in an ¡°Asian context¡±, and provide them with an opportunity to do a comparative analysis of specific industry/companies within their respective countries through interactions and discussions.
¡á Through KIT, students gain appreciation of the cross-cultural differences, enhancing global mindset and being able to work on cross cultural/functional teams.
¡á To investigate the key factors of Asian firms to be successful in Asian region and global markets, selected students from each school will form multinational teams to work on the projects.
¡á A field trip (face-to-face meeting and company visits) for one week will conducted by a host school.
¡á The final outcome of the course for each team is the case report of consulting project for one specific company with a possible additional comparison with the either companies of KIT countries.
