Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

The unit is an interdisciplinary study of the economic and business environment of the Asia-Pacific region that examines the interactions and development of economies of the region over time, the special factors affecting different countries and areas, the structure of industry and ownership, government-business relations, the impact of globalisation, regional trade and investment as well as prospects for emerging international business.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Integrate specialised business and economic concepts to analyse competitive strategies and business decision-making in the Asia-Pacific and South East Asia regions

2. Critically assess the complex structures and workings of major economies such as Japan, China, South Korea, India and the ASEAN countries using appropriate economic concepts and ideas

3. Critique and synthesise the economic development of Pacific Basin economies in a comparative fashion with reference to appropriate models, government policies and theory

4. Develop an informed position about the causes of financial, currency, and economic crises in the Asia-Pacific region and diagnose/assess how governments of the region responded to these crises.
