Course Description: In the contemporary global business environment, business people often interact with culturally different colleagues, competitors, suppliers, and government officials. This course is concerned with understanding the basis on which culturally different 'others' operate in the business environment. Contemporary cultural theory provides a framework to analyze cultural assumptions, behavior of culturally different 'others', and effectively manage cross-cultural differences encountered in the workplace. This course develops the awareness, skills, and knowledge required by managers seeking to work abroad as international executives. The course provides a key grounding in the nature of management in the global context by increasing awareness and understanding of soft skills in international management, particularly those relating to cross-cultural management. The influence of national culture on aspects of organization structure will also be examined. The emphasis is on how individuals, teams, and organizations manage these cultural differences.
