MB 650 - Cross-Cultural Leadership

In a world shrinking due to globalization and becoming increasingly interconnected through technology, this course lays the groundwork for ongoing study of cultural diversity, cross-cultural psychology and corresponding communication issues/barriers.  Through developing a greater appreciation of a global world relative to strategies for developing productive relationships and establishing influence with others of different cultures, ethnicity and nationality students will learn how these differences affect forms of negotiation, communication, and other business activities.
