BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course provides students with an understanding of international management and cross-cultural negotiation. International Management looks at management and execution of different approaches to market entry, global sourcing, the impact of technological advances on globalization, globalization of finance, and the needs of Subject Matter Experts (SME) wishing to enter international markets. Cross cultural negotiation looks at how organizations involved in international business operate and negotiate in foreign environments. Specific focus will be placed on the impact of international context, cultural background of the parties involved and the individual negotiating/business styles of representatives of different countries and types of organizations.
