Industrial Development: Strategy and Competitiveness of East Asian Firms (Module)

Module description

This module aims to understand the theoretical and conceptual foundations for studying the processes of industrialisation and firm growth, and examines the challenges of committing to long-term industrial development that provides durable conditions for local firms to grow and attain competitiveness. By investigating the experiences of successful late industrialisers - known as the East Asian Newly Industrialised Countries (NICs) - and in particular, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan - the module explores the constraints and opportunities that today’s emerging economies – both BRICs and non-BRICs - face in developing their industries and firms.
