USC Marshall China Research Group

The USC China Research Group aims to advance understanding of the business environment of China and its relation to the global economy and international relations. We conduct academic research, exchange information, and disseminate knowledge to the public and policymakers, leveraging expertise of faculty members in the Marshall School, across USC, and among other affiliated scholars. Among the issues we consider are how institutions such as political economy, law and social norm and culture shape the business environment, the organizations and operations of enterprises in China, and the relation between the Chinese business environment and American business. We aim to become a central intellectual hub for scholars, business leaders, and policymakers, and eventually to position USC as a central institution for the creation and discussion of knowledge concerning the Chinese business environment.
