This is what I'm learning
The purpose of this course is to study the relationship between culture, business and management by analysing different companies' culture. Another purpose is to highlight issues and challenges regarding ethics, gender and sustainability in the subject area of cross-cultural management and provide possible solutions to these issues and challenges.

This is what we do
During the course, lectures are published via a communication platform. There will also be various discussion forums, where students will have discussions on a particular topic each week. The practical application aims to create opportunities for the student to further develop his / her ability regarding: oral and written presentations; information search, critical review of information, literature and other material.
