This course will equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a globalised and multicultural world; it explores various frameworks and practical techniques for cross-cultural and intercultural management. The course exposes students to issues and problems that typically arise in international business when managers have to deal with culturally determined differences in values, attitudes and behaviors. The course will assist students in developing intercultural competence, leadership, and negotiation skills to successfully solve problems and gain opportunities in a multicultural environment. Students will discover their own cultural identity and learn to identify cultural aspects of verbal and nonverbal behavior of people from different cultures. Students learn to recognize cultural differences that create challenging management situations. Specific topics include: Foundations of culture and cultural frameworks, Motivation, leadership and decision making across cultures, Negotiation and conflict resolution in global business settings, Organizational culture, Leading multicultural teams and culturally diverse organizations. Students apply the acquired knowledge and gain relevant skills during hands-on activities such as scenario-based discussions and case studies. Graduates of this course will be better prepared to work in multicultural companies, manage diverse teams, and navigate the complexities of the international business landscape. Additionally, they will be better positioned to promote diversity and inclusion with organisations.
