when 15 June 2020 - 19 June 2020
language English
duration 1 week
credits 4 EC
fee EUR 50

To successfully managing change processes remains one of the key challenges for international managers and Multinational Enterprises (MNEs). These challenges often transpire due to the intensified global competitive environment and the rapidly changing external environment for MNEs, for example in areas such as an MNE’s talent management, international human resource management, expatriation, digitalisation, intercultural encounters and cross-border operations.

The course aims to introduce participants to key theories, concepts and practical applications in Change Management research, and to subsequently, enhance the ability of participants to perform successful change management processes in MNEs and other organisations that are operating on the global stage – and in particularly to excel in future roles as global managers in culturally diverse contexts.

The course focuses on solving carefully selected case studies to achieve the above, through which participants investigate different national, sociocultural and industry contexts in addition to micro, macro and meso levels.
