Planning to work abroad or in a multinational corporation? Learning the language, customs and culture is key but intercultural competence involves delving deeper. This module is designed to equip you with the skills to operate effectively in cross-cultural environments, looking at both verbal and non-verbal communication, at the deep values cultures are based upon and how these are reflected in anything from how people dress, the way they talk and behave, to the way they do business. Both undergraduates and postgraduates from every discipline are welcome to join this course.
Key skills: communicating with cross-cultural awareness, using non-verbal clues to convey meaning, acting with empathy
