The economic advance by Chinese businesses into the United States is slowed by hiring, marketing and money. But theUniversity of San Francisco may have the answers.
Thanks in part to a new research initiative within USF's School of Management, academics are discovering what is going right and what is going wrong for Chinese businesses that have established a beachhead in the Bay Area and beyond. And USF is hoping to turn that into executive training packages that prepare Chinese nationals for doing business in the Bay Area and beyond.
USF's China Business Studies Initiative was formally launched last Saturday, but USF researchers already have completed a report for the China General Chamber of Commerce that looks at how Chinese companies view their prospects for growth, their business challenges and their goals, said USF associate professor and initiative director Xiaohua Yang.
