This is a hands-on course in which exercises, cases, and guest speakers give answers to the following questions: What skills are needed by global business leaders? What is required to do cross-border business? What essential strengths and weaknesses do you have as a cross-cultural leader and how can you maximize your potential? How can you analyze and change organizational culture to suit the needs of a global business?
