Business Study Mission to Malaysia The Business Study Mission to Malaysia offers the unique opportunity to get to know Malaysia and its business potential in a structured and sophisticated way. The business study mission is specifically designed for students to develop a broad and integrated understanding about the business environment in Malaysia, as an example of emerging markets in Southeast Asia. Malaysia is one of the fastest growing countries in the region and the government has the ambition to raising Malaysia from a middle-income country to a fully developed country by 2020. The structure of business reflects the country's ethnic and cultural diversity and its strong commitment to globalization. The course analyses several aspects of Malaysia's business environment that influences multinational companies' strategic decisions to enter into or expand their business in Malaysia and discusses challenges and opportunities that these companies face in Malaysia. The course also explores the rise of Malaysian firms on the international business scene and covers specific topics relevant to Malaysia such as Islamic finance or halal food and tourism.
