The GlobalPeople team at Warwick

The GlobalPeople resources have been developed by staff at the University of Warwick who have substantial knowledge and experience in the understanding of intercultural communication. Within the team there is expertise in a range of academic disciplines, including linguistics, education, business management, psychology, organisational behaviour and work-based learning. What unites the team around the Global People project is a common interest in how people interact, communicate and learn together across cultural boundaries. In addition to academic expertise, team members have significant commercial experience and a core aim of the Global People project is to make state-of-the-art knowledge available in a practical and accessible format. All members of the team are based in the Centre for Applied Linguistics at the University of Warwick. The department runs an MSc Intercultural Communication for Business and the Professions (Daniel Dauber is course leader) and offer a PhD degree in the intercultural field. A list of current PhD students within the department of a whole can be found here.
