Cross-cultural Management

Credit hour 4


This course will give the participants a first set of tools to operate in a sensitive and efficient manner in a culturally diverse work environment
Students will gain an understanding about how culture shapes organization:
  • Through belief systems: understanding differences in Eastern and Western world views
  • Through value systems: assessing, measuring and comparing specific value differences
  • Through norms of interaction: understanding communication styles, the use of time and space and non-verbal language
  • Through inner evolutionary dynamics of society
This class is offered in both the Autumn and Spring semesters.
