At the end of the course, the students would have gained the following:
1. Clear understanding of cross-cultural dimensions and how to effectively communicate across cultures within a management context.
2. Practice in analyzing cross-cultural interactions through role plays and concrete business case studies.

The Geert Hofstede Cultural Dimensions Model will form the basic framework.
