Global Management and Culture (MIBS6002)

UNIT OF STUDY

The effective management of employees from diverse backgrounds poses a significant challenge for many international organizations, as well as for domestic firms which inevitably face the dilemma of workforce diversification. However, as organizations move from domestic to global business arenas, meeting this cross-cultural challenge is also one of the key levers for achieving competitive advantage. For managers working in such contexts, the ability to carefully observe and analyse cross-cultural situations is fundamental to individual and organizational success. The underlying driver in achieving this success is the understanding of one's cultural assumptions and how these impact interactions with others, decision making processes and even perception of the world around us. This unit will address these issues.
