As business becomes increasingly global and as the workplace begins to reflect the diversity of our population, it is crucial for leaders to develop cross-cultural competence in order to navigate international assignments, to engage in cross-cultural teams, to work with diverse clients, customers and other key stakeholders, and to compete and collaborate successfully with other organizations. Communicating across Cultures introduces students to the challenges of communicating within different cultures (i.e. cross-cultural communication) and communicating between different cultures (i.e. intercultural communication). Students will confront the values, beliefs, and assumptions they hold about people from different groups and will begin to develop practical skills in communicating across the cultures. Through the use of activities, simulations, case discussions, guest speakers and readings, this course provides an opportunity for students to begin to develop cultural awareness and investigate how culture and worldview play a crucial role in cross-cultural communication.
