Cross Cultural Management - 4th Trimester 2020/21

3.5 ECTs / Trimester-Long Course / English

The world is becoming increasingly more global. From the emergence of multinational organizations and global markets to the rising numbers of international workers, new challenges and opportunities emerge for entrepreneurs, managers, and employees. These challenges and opportunities can be best understood if cross-cultural factors are taken into consideration. 
This course aims to deepen your understanding of the context-specific nature of management and to provide you with knowledge and skills helpful to navigate the increasingly global nature of contemporary work. To that aim, we will start by exploring the fundamentals of culture and cross-cultural differences. Subsequently, we will examine some critical aspects of working and managing in a global environment; including issues related to communication, leadership and negotiation, motivation, teamwork, and the management of expatriates and international careers.
