This course provides a broad survey of the theoretical and practical aspects of management practice in Europe, introducing you to the major financial, economic and socio-economic, physical, socio-cultural, political, legal, labor, competitive, and distributive forces that characterize business in Europe. The course will help you develop an increased awareness of the differences between European and North American business practices, and a better grasp of the impact of differences in business practices on the conduct of business internationally. It is based on an understanding of comparative business cultures covering the work of Clyde Kluckholm and Fred Strodtbeck, Gary Ferraro, Bjorn Bjerke, Fons Trompenaars, Geert Hofstede as well as the G.L.O.B.E. project.

The emphasis in this course is both on understanding and applying one's knowledge of different management practices, using national cultures as an aid to understanding the evolution of various management practices. We'll examine improved management of human resources, enhancement of cross border trade, relocation of business activities to different countries as well as the 'melding' of different cultures in multi-national companies as well as companies which are involved in joint ventures, mergers or takeovers.

As today's manager needs to develop both individual as well as effective team skills, you'll be encouraged to engage in creative group problem-solving intended to develop your analytical and creative people management skills. Emphasis in this course is also given to the development of effective business communication skills through formal report writing as well as the delivery of oral presentations.
