Germany is a country that is steeped in culture. It has had hundreds of years to develop through significant occurrences. This, too, is true for Japan. The United States, on the other hand, has had significantly less time to develop its culture. In fact, some argue that the United States does not have a single culture. As an open land for people, many immigrants brought their cultures to America, resulting in a melting pot. So, how were the business cultures in each of these three countries formed?
The similarities between a country's academic system and business culture are uncanny. This suggests that during development, the business culture in a country is heavily influenced by its corresponding higher educational system.
This paper explores the idea that a country's business culture is derived from its academic culture. It will look at three countries with powerful standings in the world with similar populations and GDPs.
