I’ll choose to use bribery to illustrate the aspects of cultural differences and how I would address managing around them and I think that it is important to differentiate between bribery and corruption Bribery - means giving or receiving an unearned reward to influence someone's behavior. One common form of bribery is a "kickback" - an unearned reward following favorable treatment. Corruption - is any unlawful or improper behavior that seeks to gain an advantage through illegitimate means. Bribery, abuse of power, extortion, fraud, deception, collusion, cartels, embezzlement and money laundering are all forms of corruption. Since you did not refer to specific incident, I can only speak to general bribery. With an Ethical Relativism approach, we cannot deem one value system is “better” than another, but it is important to note that both our culture and the Arab culture have a similar approach to bribery, though we call it by different names.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
