Abstract [en]

The emerging countries attract more worldwide attention thanks to their strong upward economic growth nowadays. Especially with the progress of globalization, well-managed companies in emerging economies begin to win chances of international exposure on the global business stage. However, there are not so many familiar names turning up when we mention global leaders from China. This paradox inspires our curiosity and passion to explore the answer of this issue. Thus, this thesis aims to probe this phenomenon and draw lessons from this situation for future improvements. It both benefits the present business leaders in booming Chinese companies, and high potential talents who will compete globally now or in the near future.

This research is conducted under guidelines of qualitative methodology; with interviews, questionnaire and a case study to understand the phenomenon. Based on our research, with frequent reflection incorporating our empirical data, the conclusive result is as follows:

a)        Chinese business executives are actually well competent managers in terms of business performance.

b)        An open-minded global mindset and vision emphasizing on core organization value are imperative to be an effective global leader.

c)        The whole of society’s welfare can be reliant and dependent on recognition of its global leaders.
