Cross Cultural Leadership

This concentration is designed for students who seek a broad, multi-disciplinary approach toward careers in organizations with cross-cultural and international activities. This concentration allows the individual to selectively combine several disciplines to develop skills needed to function effectively in cross-cultural and global environments. Students use economic analysis to examine the nature of organizations operating within a global economy, develop the skills needed to manage people in diverse environments and think from multiple perspectives, and learn to analyze similarities and differences in verbal and non-verbal communication among different cultures as they relate to norms, values, and practices.
