This course is supposed to be fun! You should learn about cross-cultural differences and similarities, about its antecedents and its consequences. But at the same time you should teach and tell your experiences and examples from your travels or your home country. Thus this course is about communication and exchange. Consequently it’s absolutely required to be open-minded, to be willing to share and to be courageous to try out and experience. As a next step common grounds for global business will be presented and implications for negation processes deduced. This course will strive above many relevant topics to give you a feeling about “what matters” in cross-cultural interactions in work life… and maybe inspire you also further.
