ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Many people contributed to the creation on this doctoral thesis. Even though although they are not mentioned here by identity, they are aware of their role and support through the research method, for which I feel most happy. First of all, We am most indebted to Prof. Li Choy Chong, who has significantly exceeded his duty as my manager by constantly supporting me personally throughout my personal doctoral thesis project. The discussions with him in St . Gallen and Singapore were always fruitful and inspiring. This is also true for my personal co-supervisor Prof. Narendra Meters. Agrawal, whom encouraged and challenged my work with his detailed comments. I also would like to appreciate all my interview partners, in whose statements stand for a foundation of my empirical function. Especially, I would really prefer to appreciate Albrecht " Ali” Fromm, who reactivated his expatriate network in South Korea and therefore made the contact to many interviewees conceivable. His good friend Bernd Isslinger played an important role in Korea and supported me personally with his industrial experience and connections. Mr. Park, Dong-Seok, my aged friend and fellow scholar, Ms. Track, Son-Jong, my personal colleague, and Mr. Lee, Deok-Hyong also helped me with their various connections to important people and showed me a great time in Seoul. Prof. Lee, Seung-Joo from KDI School supported me along with his alumni links. Many thanks as well to my fellow important colleagues in St . Gallen. We rejoiced and experienced together. Thank you in particular to Guido, Markus, Christian, Zheng and Claudia for a excellent time in Singapore and St . Gallen. My own warmest thanks a lot go to my loved ones both in Germany and South Korea, most importantly to mother and father, Kyung-Sook and Manfred Fuhl, for being the world's ideal parents in every single stage of my life. For this reason, I allocate this dissertation to these people.
