The subjects covered on the course include the role of culture and its impact on individuals, organizations and management; cultural differences and dimensions of culture; intercultural teams; cross-cultural interaction; managerial challenges in culturally different contexts; and leadership in cross-cultural context.
By the end of this course students should have a more in-depth understanding of culture in situations such as: working abroad, international meetings, working in international projects/teams, and dealing with workplace diversity. The course also supports students’ development of global mindset and encourage them to value diversity as well as to increase knowledge of cultural frameworks.
Interview video reports, discussions, and several written assignments. All course assignments have to be submitted in English. You should have at least one of the course books at hand from the first week of the course.
This course is organized fully online. Since discussions and participative lectures are not present, the responsibility of a student is even bigger in reaching his/her learning goals. Student must reserve time for active reading of course book and searching for additional academic material and submitting the assignments on time. Students should be familiar with the basic HRM vocabulary (Human resource management), and be able to follow the video lectures and read course material in English.
Each week there will be assignments that need to be completed within that week, so make sure you reserve plenty of time to be able to complete them during the week.
