WHAT’S YOUR GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE? Parochialism Nation views the world solely through its own eyes and perspectives. People do not recognize that other people have different ways of living  and working. Significant obstacle for global managers. Ethnocentric Attitude Belief that the  home country managers  are best in work approaches  and practices.

Believe that people in foreign countries do not have the needed skill,  expertise, knowledge or experience to make the best business  decisions as the people in the home country do.

    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.
