This course explores the relationship [among] culture, communication, technology, and ways of organizing across national contexts and in different types of organizations (non-profit, voluntary, civic, governmental, small business and corporate systems). The communicative and ethical dimensions of international organizing are addressed.” Course Description What public images—or stereotypes—do we tend to hold of people from other cultures or countries? In seeking answers to that question, this course contributes to your resources as “responsible citizens of the world.” It explores theories and models that provide an integrated framework for understanding intercultural communication and international business. It presents perspectives on cosmopolitan communication, global leadership, cultural synergy and the dynamic processes that affect international business and globalization. It provides students with an opportunity to participate in team research and to share its key findings in a formal presentation to the class. This course is appropriate for students working, studying, or living in environments removed from their comfort zones or those considering study-abroad programs or planning to engage in leisurely activities in other countries. It is expected that, by semester’s end, the student’s self-reflection, cultural sensitivity, and global awareness will be enhanced. Course Objectives • To become familiar with the skills for cross-culturally competent communication for the multinational organization. • To develop some skills in research and teamwork by contributing to a team research paper and by giving an interactive, creative, no-notes presentation of its key findings formally in class.
