During the course, we will investigate various aspects of intercultural management. The creation of cultural awareness and sensitivity, including a better understanding of one’s own culture, is fundamental to being an effective manager in settings involving different cultures. Another emphasis will be put on communication is an intercultural context. We will also look into cross-cultural negotiations, leadership styles in different cultures, the challenges of being an expatriate, and ethical considerations relating to culture. While the course will present and address the theoretical foundations of intercultural management, a lot of emphasis will be placed on classroom interaction, case studies, and exercises where we will use the cultural diversity within the group to learn from and with each other.
