BUS 332 - Cross-Cultural Leadership

Credits: 3 Prerequisite: BUS 217 and at least sophomore standing. The increased interdependence of global markets brings disparate cultures together in ways that were unimaginable to previous generations. The differences that are inherent to diverging cultures produce tension for business leaders and global citizens. But these same differences provide leaders the chance to draw on collective creative forces to enact changes that open up new and exciting opportunities. This course explores how leaders deal with these challenges and opportunities by drawing on research from a wide range of academic disciplines including management, psychology, anthropology, sociology, and political science. Students wrestle with a broad set of perspectives addressing cultural values and how these values impact the way in which leaders operate. In turn, embedded in this course is a leadership development component, in which you will emerge with a better understanding of your own capacities and opportunities as an emerging leader. Schatten, Gilbert.
