Oppimistavoite / Learning goals

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.
