INB2101 Cultural Framework of Business II
Credit Points: 15

We are in a global business village where different national markets merge into one global marketplace. Despite the rapid development of globalization of markets, each market differs from the rest in certain ways.  Whether one like it or not, almost al of us are part of the global economy.  When you enter this marketplace, you may be working in either a multinational of local organization or even in business for yourself and will inevitably met and/or work with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.


This unit introduces you, the student, different dimensions of culture as a framework and illustrates how these different dimensions differentiate one culture from another.  When these dimensions are applied to a culture and to issues that affect the workplace such as communication, negotiation, language, business ettiquettes, social customs and so forth, they can be readily identified and provide greater understanding of why people behave as they do and how this affects business.
