IBS220 Cross-Cultural Management


In the contemporary global business environment, business people often interact with culturally different colleagues, competitors, suppliers and government officials. Each operates with their own set of ‘rules’ of how they should act in a meeting, or a negotiation or in deciding whom to recruit and how. This course is concerned with helping you understand the basis on which culturally different ‘others’ operate in the business environment. Contemporary cultural theory provides a framework for you to analyse your own cultural assumptions, behaviour of culturally different ‘others’ and effectively manage cross-cultural differences encountered in the workplace.
