A Diverse Faculty

Twenty-first century business is becoming ever-more culturally complex – the diversity of the workforce, the extent of supply chains, the range of stakeholders and the potential markets for the products of any organization are growing. The course, 'Cross-cultural Management', is structured in its syllabus content and classroom activities to prepare students for anticipating and managing issues that may arise from this cultural interfacing, thereby gaining competitive advantage for their future employers.

As a university level educator for the past 30+ years, I continue to (re)discover that learning to (un)learn is all about opening us to 'otherness': other forms of reasoning, other forms of logics, other forms of explanations, and to other ways of knowing. To take your learning to the next level, you have to come prepared to engage, and in this process, help make this world a better place.
