In an ever-globalizing economy it is vital for the next-generation of workforce to develop a global mentality, along with intercultural competence in communication.

Special attention will be given to management challenges in multinational corporations. The course also explores how the adoption and usage of information and communication technologies can help support and facilitate intercultural communication and collaboration.
