Culture in a Global Business Environment
In the Culture in a Global Business Environment course, learners examine the unique differences among global cultures and apply business principles across economic borders. As the speed of globalization continues to intensify, organizations need leaders who can adapt and apply practices across a wide spectrum of strategic options.
Learners apply the different types of cultural dimensions (e.g. Hofstede’s Five Dimensions of Culture) for firms operating in the international markets. Additionally, learners analyze the differences between nationalism, globalization, and glocalization.
