Leading in a Global Context

fee GBP 1800

Today’s employers increasingly expect international experience and intercultural competence in a graduate’s CV. The aim of this module is to develop self-awareness of the student as a global leader and how they might develop key cross-cultural competencies. Working in an international context with other students, the programme builds student understanding of themselves and their own cultural values; explores how they deal with inter-cultural issues arising from group interaction experiences; and examines the impact global leaders might have on communities and the wider global context. Learning will be a mix of classroom-based activities alongside experiential exercises. Guest speakers will be incorporated into the programme as will visits to some of Scotland’s rich heritage sites. Students will be encouraged to work in inter-cultural and inter-disciplinary groups, reflecting the reality of global workplaces.
