Cross Cultural Management

when 23 May 2016 - 27 May 2016

This course covers the challenge of interacting, managing and leading across cultural differences and national boundaries. Cultural differences are hard to understand because, although their consequences are obvious, it is not easy to analyze, describe or categorize them. Culture is actually highly complex. For future manager, being aware of the variety of issues and opportunities that arise when we take action outside our own culture is a key factor for success.
The module "Cross cultural management: group work project" is recommended for students attending this module but both modules can be taken independently.
