International Management is a course designed to increase awareness of major challenges facing organizations and managers in today’s hypercompetitive global marketplace. By focusing on the international dimensions of management and organization, the course provides a framework for formulating successful strategies in an increasingly complex world economy. Through a multi-disciplinary approach drawing on social anthropology, psychology, management, and organizational theory, the course deals with various issues related to complexity of culture, cultural orientation of different organizations and individuals and the mapping of world cultures through the cultural dimensions of Hofstede and others. The goal of the course is to develop students' understanding of management and organizational behavior from an international and cross-cultural perspective.
The course will enable students to improve cultural sensitivity, develop skills of cross-cultural communications, managing cultural differences in a multicultural environment, and the art of negotiation so that international businesses can be effectively managed and business failures related to cultural blunders can be minimized.
