MAM 8005 - Managing Across Cultures

While critically examining inter-cultural managerial concepts and challenges, this course has a "practical application" format, providing students an opportunity to creatively experiment with and practically apply the concepts and practices examined in MAM 8003 & 8008 to organizational settings. It enables the further development of students' own global leadership perspectives while integrating new learning into their professional management approaches and workplace practices. With emotional and cultural intelligence as a background, there is a particular focus on how to realistically address the challenges created by distributed organizations and a global workforce, including how to effectively communicate across cultures, develop vibrant intercultural work environments, collaborative work relationships and teams, and address cross-cultural workplace conflict. 3 credit(s)
